A5 Product RD Risk Management

Course Introduction

In product RD, out of 100 initial proposals, only 10 will be given a formal 'go'. Out of those 10, only 5 will get into test manufacturing. And probably only 2 will actually get good sales in the market. And these 2 successful products' sales and profit probably accounts for 50% or more of a company's profits.

If this company's product RD projects' successful rate doubles, its sales and profit will clearly also double (or more). At the same time, internal RD resources use efficiency can increase. RD cost and time proportionately decrease, and the product can go to market sooner to enjoy higher sales prices, longer product lifecycle, and more profit.

What stops companies from getting into the above positive lifecycle? Let's look at product RD's 5 characteristics: temporary, unique, complex, uncertain, conflicting. It is easy to understand that for any product RD projects, issues, changes and risks are 3 main constraints. Therefore, only with effective management of the 3 constraints, can there be a decrease of various negative impacts. Thereby increasing project success rates.

Our "Product RD Risk Management" course uses case studies and exercises to guide students in the use of effective risk management processes, tools, techniques and skills. It will help you learn how to effectively control various risks in product RD, in order to increase product RD project success rates.
