The Savvy Consortium's
New Product Development & Innovation Engineering Conference XXVIII
Fast & Flexible Performance Excellence
Thursday-Friday April 23-24, 2020
The Savvy Consortium produces its 28th New Product Development and Innovation Engineering Conference for the product development & innovation engineering managers’ community. This Conference is the knowledge-rich event of 2020. It is all about benchmarking the people, processes, tools and practical methods from the “fuzzy-front end” of innovation to the production and launch of customer-satisfying products.
The Savvy Conference Speakers are New Product Development and Engineering leaders who present their experiences with processes, tools, collaboration methods and operating principles to ‘get the work done’. They demonstrate how they improve their engineers’ talents, prioritize their projects and improve their work flow; at the development team, engineering support and management levels. They emphasize the flow of innovation and the knowledge work that delivers value to their customers, without delays.
The Savvy Consortium emphasizes the “strategic good work” of new product development and innovation engineering people: “by our work, we put bread on the table and continually advance science and technology for the betterment of mankind (customers, markets, and technical knowledge workers).”
Hear, see and interact with these product development engineering managers and re-energize your organization to build better work cultures, to adapt useful methods and to collaborate with customers.
Register now for the Savvy Conference.
