Webinar: Going Agile to accelerate new product development
with Dr. Robert G. Cooper

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017
Online, 2:00pm ET - 30min



Integrating Agile methods into your NPD processes to bring better products to market, faster.

NPD organizations are turning to methods traditionally used for software development – like Scrum, Agile and Lean Start Up – to drive innovation and get products to market more efficiently. But are they right for your kind of products? And how can you adapt them to make them work for your business?

In this 30-minute webinar, Dr. Robert G. Cooper – “father” of the Stage-Gate process and innovation guru – explains how many leading manufacturing firms are blending Agile methodologies with their existing processes to stunning results. He’ll describe how this Agile-Stage-Gate methodology makes processes more adaptive and flexible, and more agile and responsive to customers, resulting in better products and accelerated time-to-market.

This webinar will be a preview to the Planisware Center for Excellence masterclass, “Beyond Agile and Stage-Gate,” to be led by Dr. Cooper on October 25th and 26th in San Francisco.
