Accelerating Innovation: Post-Pandemic Lessons with Stage-Gate® Creator, Dr. Robert Cooper


If the pandemic taught us anything, it is that accelerated innovation is not only possible, but the benefits of reducing cycle time can be massive. What is not clear, however, are the methods to achieve this sometimes-illusive accelerated time-to-market. Where does an organization even begin? Or how can it level-up to have a greater impact? 


Join the legendary Stage-Gate® Creator, Dr. Robert Cooper and Planview Product Development thought leader, Carrie Nauyalis, for this engaging webcast on Accelerating Innovation moderated by Planview's Teresa Breitbach, to learn: 

  • How to address the damaging trend of under-resourcing product development projects
  • Best practices from “lean development” on how to right-size your idea-to-launch process
  • Fresh applications of Agile-Stage-Gate to improve productivity
  • Success stories from the pandemic and how to leverage key learnings for your organization
