Handbook Of New Product Development Management from the Author: Christoph Loch. Managing new product development is a key area of management, straddling strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship and macro-organizational behaviour. All of the contributorsin the Handbook of New Product Developmentare are well-known and leading exponents to theory of New Product Development and to methods used in practice. They draw upon their experience and work to offer a comprehensive view of the challenges in managing the development of new products. Existing knowledge in the different topics is examined and the key management challenges, and the important gaps in our knowledge are discussed. Most of the chapters draw upon systematic interaction with companies and practice and this is presented in the examples and the case studies cited. The Handbook of New Product Development and Management surveys this area in the context of an overall framework that explains how aspects interact and combine in a successful NPD process. Each chapter outlines open questions and highlights needs for future research. *A comprehensive view of the challenges in managing the development of new products from well-known and leading contributors in the field * The first handbook to fill the gap for a high-level handbook which is valuable to both the academic/practitioner

Knowledge Perspectives Of New Product Development from the Author: Dimitris G Assimakopoulos. New Product Development (NPD) is about the ideation, formulation, and implementation of new and superior solutions in the market. Beyond the obvious need for organizations to innovate in order to compete, embedded in any NPD program are knowledge, technological expertise, and the social networks that convert these capabilities into offerings that create value at every level—for customers, industries, communities, and regions. This volume provides an array of knowledge perspective in NPD across multiple levels of analysis and geographic regions, including Europe, the United States, China, Japan, and India, to explore the dynamics of NPD in today’s global environment. Presenting case studies from such industries as ICT services, semiconductors, software development, bio-technology, higher education, and even safety for children’s toys, and drawing from a variety of theoretical perspectives, including technology and knowledge management, sociology, economic geography, and organizational behavior, the authors highlight critical success and failure factors in NPD. Among the topics covered: New product development teams, including multi-functional and multi-site teams De-localization and off-shoring of tasks and processes Individual competencies and organizational capabilities University-industry interactions, high-tech clusters, and technology transfer Technology policy

New Product Development from the Author: Ronald Eugene Kmetovicz. In most organizations, new product development is a kind of mysterious "art" practiced by a select few individuals possessing key skills. This groundbreaking book introduces a revolutionary approach to new product development that transforms that nebulous art into a rigorous science. Inspired by the author's extensive R&D experience at Goodyear Aerospace and Hewlett-Packard, it details a dynamic organizational model, guaranteed to radically enhance the efficiency and creativity of the product development process. Fundamental to the author's model is its cross-functional approach, in which responsibility is distributed among teams (the product development definition team, development planning team, the execution team, etc.) comprising engineers and managers from throughout the organization. This systematic new approach is based on systems theory that works both vertically--through an organization's management structure and horizontally--across new product development functions. An integrated approach such as this affords heightened focus on the product development task at hand, greater economy of effort, and allows managers and design engineers to more readily meet complex design and analysis objectives, negotiate management considerations, and budget, while integrating the latest research developments. After an in-depth examination of the variables affecting new product development, New Product Development traces the development process from the initial concept through planning and execution and finally, to introduction into the marketplace. All methods presented are based on actual product development from Goodyear Aerospace and Hewlett-Packard. Throughout, difficult organizationalconcepts are supported by well-rendered visual aids that help readers to more readily comprehend them. And a number of handy checklists and reference material are supplied that help in the implementation of the methods outlined. Offering a dynamic new approach to new product development, this book is an essential guide for project managers, design engineers, and all those involved in cross-functional new product development in industry.
