From R&D to Customer Service, effectively serving the Value Chain is an integral part of an organization's success when bringing new products to market. The fact is, many organizations run their New Product Development (NPD) projects in siloed environments not taking into account all of the elements that can impact a product's success. NPD projects do not only live in the world of marketing and engineering. NPD projects in many cases need to incorporate the strategic objectives of executives, the demand of customers and the bottom line of operations and finance in order to realize their success.
