Are New Products Driving Your Company?

Dec. 16, 2008
This five-step guide takes a theory of constraints (TOC)-based approach to systematically attacking the bottlenecks limiting innovation. By refocusing and redeploying existing staff and resources, you could improve growth while creating a lasting culture of continuous innovation improvement. Read how the general manger of a mid-sized industrial equipment company identified the bottleneck constraint in the engineering and development group where they had far too many projects underway. With new visibility into each project, the teams had a new sense of purpose. They took a new technology project that had a three-year development horizon and using a combination of already available technologies began production of a new line of energy savings products with 95% of the benefits in less than six months.
