Let's Innovate like it's 1488

That was the year Portuguese explorer Bartolomeu Dias rounded the Cape of Good Hope, launching 300 years of exploration and enriching global trade.

Likewise, we have entered a new Age of Discovery. Trade routes today take the form of new technology and product platforms. R&D and Innovation have fundamentally changed in the face of technical advances, knowledge specialization, and increased partnering opportunities.

Product development organizations are constantly searching for ways to improve time to market, reduce the total cost of development and more effectively prioritize winning ideas. According to a global study of 280 product development executives, what's holding them back is not a lack of skilled resources in the company. For the majority of executives surveyed, lack of visibility into demand for resources and capacity to fulfill them is resulting in ongoing chaos among their team, missing market windowns and wasting resources on the wrong projects and products.
