Our objective when helping to implement NPD processes is to:
Accelerate the accrual of desired benefits
To do this, The Adept Group uses uses best-in-class process, design and deployment methodologies. Our research and benchmarking among numerous organizations shows that how organizations implement is as important as what they implement.
How you implement is as important as what you implement.
Workflow, decision flow, and information-flow for each NPD sub-process must be designed, deployed, and then used. The Adept Group works with client organizations by coupling best-in-class processes with best-in-class implementation methods. Our work includes top management involvement through facilitated workout sessions, detailed design and deployment project planning, full design assistance, documentation and templates, facilitated team meetings, train-the-trainer, systems support and integration planning, sub-process and practices integration, and just-in-time NPD project assistance.
