Frequently Asked Questions

Product development refers to the process of creating, designing, and bringing new products to the market to meet their customers’ needs. It involves stages such as ideation, marketing strategy, commercialization, and the improvement of existing products.

When creating a product development strategy, enterprises should consider the following:

  • Market demand
  • Business goals and resources
  • Risks associated with the product development process
  • Competitor offerings

Product development and product improvement are essential parts of the product management process but are different from each other in terms of their scope.

Product development is the process of creating and launching new products. Meanwhile, product improvement refers to the tasks and processes related to enhancing existing products to better meet customer needs and maintain competitiveness in the market.

Both concepts are interrelated in that product improvement can be a part of the product development process for existing products.

The Voice of the Customer (VoC) is essential in managing, developing, and improving any product or service. It primarily helps businesses understand the needs and preferences of their customers, as well as their issues with a product. This feedback is essential for creating products that meet their requirements.

By incorporating customer feedback into the product development process, businesses can create products that are more likely to be successful in the market. It also helps increase customer satisfaction, loyalty, and market share.

The length of product development varies widely depending on the type of product, the complexity of the project, and the resources available. Not all enterprises create products at the same pace.

The most common challenges enterprises face in product development are:

  • managing costs;
  • ensuring quality;
  • conducting market research and analysis;
  • managing timelines and deadlines; and
  • implementing effective quality control measures.

The most effective way an enterprise can manage, track, and maintain product development projects and tasks is by utilizing a digital solution.

Using a digital platform to record results, concerns, and other data and observations helps centralize all processes and streamline communications. This helps improve workflow and reduces friction among the different departments and stakeholders involved in every stage of product development.
