Are new products failing to drive your bottom line?


Whitepaper - accelerating product development results with the theory of constraints

This report outlines a powerful approach that you can use immediately. Traditional improvement efforts are based on the premise that strengthening each part of the organization or each step in the process, makes the whole stronger. Unfortunately, this just ends up diluting your efforts. But our constraints based approach recognizes that processes are critical chains of interdependent activities. And the strength of a chain is not determined by the sum of its parts – but by its weakest link. To get the most out of your efforts you have to focus them where they will have the most impact: on strengthening the weakest link in your innovation chain.

This report extends these constraint management concepts to the area of new product and service innovation. We’ll introduce you to five powerful focusing steps for increasing the bottom line impact of your innovation investment and show you how to apply them. They provide a powerful tool for leveraging your efforts to create growth by attacking the issues that constrain your organization. In fact, using a theory of constraints based approach delivers as much as 15 times greater improvement than traditional methods alone.

That’s what you’ll learn in this Free Report. As soon as you get the email confirmation, download this hands-on, how-to report and change the way you approach innovation forever.
