Taking Your Stage Gate to the Next Level

The stage-gate process has been a cornerstone of product development since the 1960’s. As applied to innovation, the stage-gate process often yields incremental innovation. Despite its benefits, the stage-gate approach has led to a lot of unintended consequences that inhibit innovation. So how can we adjust the stage-gate process to be more innovation friendly?

Innovate with purpose

For successful businesses purpose defines the role they want to play in the future they aim to help shape. It is driven by a desire to have a positive impact on the lives of consumers and customers and to engage their employees in building the future of the company. Having a clear purpose will outperform more traditional strategy development because it will help unleash a passion to innovate in your organization.
