Planisware and Stage-Gate International to Host Webinar on How to Accelerate Time-to-Benefit for a New Product Development Process and Automation Tool

Webcast will describe a best practice framework to establish and grow value from implementing a new product development (NPD) business process and PPM software solution

SAN FRANCISCO--()--When unclear resource commitments, cross-functional miscommunications, and lack of transparency over projects challenge executives to make informed and timely portfolio decisions, it’s time to establish a new product development process along with an automation tool to deliver improved predictability, portfolio transparency, and higher value throughput.

But what’s the best approach to shorten the initial time to benefit when designing a process and implementing a tool, and how do you continue to generate value once a process and tool have been introduced?

During the webinar, “Establishing and Evolving Your NPD Process and Tool,” on Thursday, August 27, Stage-Gate International Principal Consultant, Dr. Ken Huskins and Planisware PPM Practice Director Keith Duncan will present best practices to gain value quickly and offer successful case study examples for introducing a new NPD process and software tool together.

Participants for this webinar will understand how taking an integrated approach to defining and automating the new product development process reduces wasted effort. They will gain insight on how to:

  • Align the NPD implementation project to key objectives
  • Drive implementation priorities by connecting painpoints to their root causes
  • Identify the metrics that matter most
  • Avoid pitfalls many companies encounter
  • Phase projects to generate quick wins

Speakers: Dr. Ken Huskins, Principal Consultant at Stage-Gate International and Keith Duncan, Director of PPM Practice at Planisware

Date and Time: Thursday, August 27, 11am Eastern
