About the Webinar:
Ryma's September 9th webinar was presented by Claire-Juliette Beale and Scott Burleson. Ongoing success in new product development and management doesn't happen by accident. While many great companies have started with visionary inventors, intuitive understanding of market and user needs, and good timing (think of Dupont's timely production of power for the American Independence war, or Edison's electricity!), consistent growth requires different skills, resources and approaches. This webinar focused on the speaker's experiences with getting support from innovation and product management communities and with the resources of the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) in particular.
