5. Wednesday, 12 Mar, 2014 07:00pm – Seminar: The Best versus the Rest in New Product Development by Dr. Anthony Di Benedetto

Most firms recognize the importance of new products to their competitiveness and their bottom line. But what is it that the best firms do, and what can managers from other firms learn about the best practices employed by these firms? Also, what have been the most recent trends in new product development (NPD), and how has this process changed in recent years? The most recent study coming from the industry states that less than 25% of companies surveyed have both NPD success and sales and profits generated by new products.

Venue: Venue: IEEC premises (75 Bukit Timah Road)
Cost: $20 for pre-registered guest; $30 at the door
