What’s Inside the Book
Proven Strategies for Making New Products a Resilient Competitive Advantage
This small but powerful book (perfect to toss in your briefcase or bag) takes on the conventional thinking that says more resources are the answer—helping you to see what is really going on as your organization seeks to innovate and launch new products. In an open and straight-talking manner, it teaches you to challenge the premises undermining your performance. Then it shares strategies that strike directly at the root causes, so you can start taking action immediately—action against issues like:
- Low Project Throughput – Are you simply not getting as many new products to market as you need to?
- Poor Predictability or On-Time Performance – Do you struggle to predict and commit to timelines that your business can actually achieve?
- Minimal Market Impact – Are too many of your resources going to low-impact programs or programs that don’t deliver as promised?
- Long Time to Market / Slow Speed to Market – Do projects take too long causing you to miss critical windows of opportunity?
These are the key issues that Unlocking Innovation Productivity can help you overcome. As a passionate business leader and innovation insider himself, Mike Dalton has used these strategies across industries globally. This book crystallizes that experience into the roadmap you need to transform your organization—once and for all—to deliver both profitable and predictable new product growth.
