Business focus on designing new products and selling these products to customers. The company's goal with creating new products involves two parts. The first part consists of finding a product that customers want to pay for; only products that customers purchase generate revenue for the business. The second part consists of beating competitors to market. The first company to offer a product generates the greatest number of repeat customers. Product development is a series of steps that includes the conceptualization, design, development and marketing of newly created or newly rebranded goods or services. The objective of product development is to cultivate, maintain and increase a company's market share by satisfying consumer demand. Not every product will appeal to every customer or client base, so defining the target market for a product is a critical component that must take place early in the product development process. The process of creating a new product involves nearly every department in the organization.
This talk will cover the importance of NPD and how NPD can make or break a company. A few examples from Apple, Samsung and Tesla will be shared in the talk.
