9780470117705: New Product Development For Dummies

The global consumer product market is exploding. In 2006 alone, 150,000 new products were brought to market. Now for the bad news: of those, fewer than 5% were hits, and fewer than 15% will even exist five years from now.

Written for small business owners and entrepreneurs looking for an inside track on new product development, New Product Development for Dummies offers you a unique opportunity to learn from two consummate insiders the secrets of successfully developing, marketing and making a bundle from a new product or service. You learn proven techniques for sizing up market potential and divining customer needs. You get tested-in-the-trenches strategies for launching a new product or service. And you get a frank, in-depth appraisal of the most challenging issues facing new product developers today, including the need to collaborate with global partners, optimizing technology development for a 21st century marketplace, getting start-up capital in an increasingly competitive environment, and much more. Key topics covered include:

  • Developing a winning NPD strategy
  • Generating bold new ideas for products and services
  • Understanding what your customers really want
  • Keeping projects on track, on budget, and on-time
  • Building effective cross-functional teams
  • Planning and executing a blockbuster launch
  • Collaborating with global partners
  • Maximizing your chances for success
