Good work mobirise team. We are expecting the new version soon with advance functionality with full bootstrap theme design. Give me more control over the object's properties and ill be using this free app for more serious projects. I just wanted to complement you on a beautiful piece of software.
They took a risk with moving on and heavily fund a project that had no guarantees. But they believed in their process and their team and at the end they were successful.
This project spanned from —following the sequential development process. In retrospect it is seems that the team could have achieved faster success in shortening the development timelines by adopting parallel developing process versus the continuous process.
Although the risk factor may have been higher with parallel process but the team would have achieved faster feedback on usability of the technology in various vertical products by achieving greater efficiency and economies of scale.
It was more expensive than competitors fax machines which had less functionality but were cheaper to produce. The compactness of the fax machine was not valued highly by customers.
This goes against most of the teachings in chapter 11 but in reality the CS-II was very successful. They set strategy, set business targets and lays out the direction of technology.
Development teams select their own team leads and junior engineers are given the freedom to get on with technical problem solving. Once a new product is developed and released to the market, the technology will be applied to other products. These teams are flexible and operate informally.
They are brought together for a short period to develop product concept. This team can grow into a task if project is initiated. Does not appear on organization chart.
Has budget and appears on organization chart. They encourage innovation from all levels and this contact sensor is a good example as it was a junior engineer that developed the various uses of amorphous-Silicon.
There is a functional team structure created during the task force stage. There is a heavyweight structure during the task phase and once a project is implemented it moves into the autonomous team structure as a new group is formed and appears on the organizational chart. Instead of having all the project team located in same area, they could utilize all of their global resources.
The discussion in the chapter on stage-gate processes in particular. This is the method used by most of our game teams to keep the project on track and aligned with the ship date of a given video game. There are multiple project leads that are assigned to different disciplines, for example design, art, cell engine, animation, etc.
Deliverables, metrics, and art asset progress are set within each Gate. There are typically gate review meetings at a team level based on a certain time cadence and again at the executive level, typically where funding and green lighting conversations occur. Green lighting within EA is an executive sign off on continuation with a direction or sub-component of a project.
Managing New Product Development Teams: They also recognized the risk associated with diversification and went about it in a thoughtful way by using their current positioning in market to branch into similar technologies and other markets.
High risk product development decisions equal high rewards for Canon, such as integrating a lot of new people onto a large project that required agility and time consideration.
A focus on continuous improvement- Canon does a good job at reevaluating projects, managing milestone, surveying competition, evaluating costs.B. M. Metzger is a scholar well suited to the task of discussing the history of the canon of the New Testament, the NT being his specialty. He spends the first portion of the book talking about the literature that has been published on the subject prior to this work, then goes into the history starting with the apostolic fathers.
New product development at Canon - Case Analysis · Canon’s new product development is multi-staged with specific goals/aims at each stage and an approval process at the end of each stage to move the project to the next stage.
Product/service innovation is the result of bringing to life a new way to solve the customer's problem that benefit both the customer and the sponsoring company.3 "New product innovation is where the source of growth and prosperity is.
It is also now possible, with the range of new product innovation metrics tools available, to measure new product innovation much more precisely and intelligently.
Canon is one of the leading innovators in the world. This case describes the processes by which Canon manages the flow of ideas from basic science to new products, and how it harnesses product innovation to a strategy of diversification.
A group possesses a self-organizing capability when it exhibits three conditions: autonomy, self-transcendence, and cross-fertilization. In our study of the various new product development teams, we found all three conditions. Autonomy. Headquarters’ involvement is limited to providing guidance, money, and moral support at the outset.
Innovate Products Faster is a unique offering in new product development (NPD) literature. Organized around a set of tools that are visual and easy to use, Carter and Bradford throw ice water on the fiery dichotomy of innovation and time-to-market.
