Consumer Goods Innovation Consulting
Consumer goods companies are facing greater challenges than ever before, striving to deliver sales and profit goals in a post-recession marketplace driven by a new consumer reality. The demand for the industry to innovate is greater than ever. At the same time, the slow recovery and tighter research and development budgets will challenge the ability of businesses to adapt to the post-recession consumer.
To support an increasingly global new product development environment in a recovering market, consumer goods companies will need to maximize the value of product portfolios, drive share growth through collaborative innovation with strategic customers, reduce time-to-market and time-to-profit, and ensure consumer safety and confidence. Fundamental changes to the processes and technologies that enable, manage and measure product innovation throughout the lifecycle will be required.
