THINK: SERVICES

“Planning is what people do instead of thinking.” - Robertson Davies

Innovation is not easy, markets are not static, and regulations are complex. Sort the puzzle pieces first.

IDEATION

Focused expert sessions and research, using structured innovation tools, to define the ideal product.

COMPLIANCE TRAINING

Rules change and international requirements conflict – learn how to stay ahead. Executive training nurtures understanding.

STARTUP / INVESTORS

Getting from “Aha!” to patentable ideas that are investment ready is complicated and confusing. Our structured methods make this a lot easier.

PLAN: SERVICES

“Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.” - USA Army Doctrine

Effective planning connects objectives to strategy, with details and contingencies, and realistic understanding of your operational and financial constraints.

PRODUCT COMMERCIALIZATION

Using our Integrated Parallel Execution tools we ensure that all of the activities from ideation through launch are coordinated and completed.

QUALITY SYSTEMS

The Quality Management System should support business objectives, instead of creating costly delays. Let us help you create or refine your QMS.

Our team has completed almost 100 FDA & CE approvals with near 100% success. Experience counts when you need to succeed.

DO: SERVICES

“Talk won’t dig a ditch, so grab a shovel.” - Jack Whinery

Getting from objectives to executing the strategy

To empower a product development team for success, the definition of objectives depend on clear thinking by the responsible executives. To help clarify objectives, we have a few questions that are helpful (and this is by no means an exhaustive list).
