An Introduction to New Product Introduction

Many companies would benefit from an improved New Product Introduction method

Course Overview

This training introduces an agile NPI method building on and modernising the reliable gateway review NPI method employed globally.

What is New Product Introduction?

From idea to market

The New Product Introduction process is a multi-step plan that takes your product from initial idea to market. However, it is more elaborate than a to-do list. An NPI process is carefully managed by a team of stakeholders and managers who track progress and perform frequent assessments at different stages to ensure the project is moving in the right direction.
