Background image: DPC Accelerator

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced retailers and brands to fundamentally rethink how they discover, create, make and sell new products.

However, at a time when product leaders have never had more clarity around the need to make strategic changes, they have never had less discretionary money to spend on making them.

Are you fighting to secure funding for your digital product creation (DPC) program? Has your company invested in 3D design and development capabilities, but struggled to establish a transformative digital vision for the end-to-end product lifecycle? Are you stuck doing pilots or proofs of concept with no end in sight? Do you have the necessary foundation in place to scale? Are you ready to scale, but not sure where to start?

Our proven 12-week DPC accelerator service is designed to help you achieve speed-to-scale and speed-to-value by:

  1. Aligning around DPC strategy, a common vision and business value
  2. Creating a DPC roadmap that addresses your unique complexities for people, process, technology and sponsorship
  3. Accelerating beyond pilots to achieve scale and value

You’re Not Alone – Insights from Recent Research

Today, most product leaders in retail, footwear and apparel (RFA) are actively pursuing some form of a 3D DPC initiative. But while they are experimenting with various digital use cases, actual maturity and link to business value varies widely.

  • COVID-19 accelerated the pace of digital transformation
  • 2020 current state maturity reflected early acceleration
  • Common barriers to DPC success are process, culture and talent rather than technology
