CUE Ltd is offering a series of bespoke workshops through the Coventry and Warwickshire Innovative Place Test Bed project. The workshops are part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The FREE New Product Development workshop is a master-class for anyone that has developed or is in the process of developing a new product, service or idea.

The introduction of a new product, service or business idea is notoriously expensive, fraught and risky. Blue Sky and CUE Ltd have developed this workshop to help owner/manager and would be entrepreneurs to benchmark their business idea against an established proven, tried and tested process.

There is a right way and a wrong way to go about New Product Development; so why not join the experts to learn more about an established methodology that is used by some of the largest and most successful companies in the World.

  • The ‘Best Practice’ NPD process methodology that has been proven to be effective in bringing new products and businesses to market
  • Full understanding of the ‘idea to launch’ journey
  • Learn how to test, check and assess the progress of your development process as it progresses
  • Secure a checklist of the many factors that you need to consider at different stages of the project
  • Share ‘real-world’ experiences of failures and successes
  • Experience an overview of supply chain engagement, intellectual property management and regulatory approvals.

The workshop will cover the ‘Success Factors’ and a technique known as the ‘Stage-Gate’ process and it will introduce the concept of using a scorecard (diagnostic) to assess where the project is in its development stage and the discipline/benefits of ‘passing’ each stage gate test before progressing to the next.

Refreshments and lunch is provided
