White Paper: 7 Ways to Outperform Your Competitors in New Product Development

Beating the competition at new product development and introduction (NPDI) is critical to a company’s success and profitability. It’s also a major challenge loaded with obstacles, targets, and tradeoffs. Common best practices, like gated processes and cross-departmental teams, are designed to help. But are those too commonplace to provide a competitive advantage? What really drives better market performance?

We looked for answers in over 150 companies. After analyzing processes, organization and enabling technology, we came up with a 16-page summary of what sets Top Performers apart for higher revenue growth, margin expansion, and portfolio innovation.

Here are what we found Top Performers do differently:
  1. Compete on time to market
  2. Compete on innovation at multiple levels
  3. Set the team up for success
  4. Target “market excellence” to complement “product excellence”
  5. Adhere to a product development process
  6. Take a holistic view of NPDI
  7. Enable their Innovators
