17Challenges in New-Product Development Incremental innovationDisruptive technologiesWhy do new products fail?A high-level executive pushes a favorite idea through in spite of negative research findings.The idea is good, but the market size is overestimated.The product is not well designed.
18Challenges in New-Product Development The product is incorrectly positioned in the market, not advertised effectively, or overpriced.The product fails to gain sufficient distribution coverage or support.Development costs are higher than expected.Competitors fight back harder than expected.
19Challenges in New-Product Development Factors that tend to hinder new-product developmentShortage of important ideas in certain areasFragmented marketsSocial and governmental constraintsCost of developmentCapital shortagesFaster required development timeShorter product life cycles
20Organizational Arrangements New-product deployment requires specific criteria – one company established the following acceptance criteriaThe product can be introduced within five yearsThe product has a market potential of at least $50 million and a 15 percent growth rate.The product would provide at least 30 percent return on sales and 40 percent on investment.The product would achieve technical or market leadership.
21Organizational Arrangements Budgeting For New Product Development3M’s approach:15% ruleEach promising idea gets an “executive champion”Expect some failuresGolden Step awards handed out each year
