As we learned from New Coke, Pets.com, Apple's original handheld device, the Newton, and the reissued Ford Thunderbird, all the promotion in the world won't save a product that somehow isn't right. Robert Cooper is the world's leading expert on making sure your new-product introductions are more like Apple's iPods and less like Newtons.Cooper invented what's called the "stage-gate" process of new-product development-a process used by 60% of all businesses today. For this second edition Cooper has completed a major new study-the largest study of product development practices and results ever undertaken. He analyzed thousands of new success and failures from hundreds of companies, with a particular emphasis on high-technology products and services. "Product Leadership" won't just tell you what things are helpful to your company's success. Now it will tell you "how and how much" they help.
"This...volume is a quite complete package on the management of product development....Cooper's stature as a researcher in the field is superb."
