Successful product development involves many people.  Sales, marketing, product design, operations, finance and many other activities must work together to turn new ideas into reality.  Finance provides a vital role in separating commercially promising ideas from those that are not worth the investment.   

This session discusses about how to tie product development strategies to capital planning and operational decision making, along with customer feedback and overall marketing and value proposition strategies.  This can be an all-encompassing and sometimes overwhelming discussion, but when executed effectively, can provide powerful alignment and direction.  This session will provide valuable insights on how to effectively and efficiently provide new value to your customers and guide your business investment and operating decisions!
