Sneha Mandala takes a look at applying lean manufacturing to product development.

Lean thinking has traditionally been considered applicable to manufacturing and process related operations only. This decade, the concept of applying lean thinking to Product development has gained popularity.

Whether is creating a new product or continuously improving a process, lea thinking means creating more value with lesser waste. What would you do if you have limited resources but great ideas to develop a product? Lean product development occurs in three stages:

- Human-centric innovative thinking to gather customer and market data

- Lean prototyping to create a minimal viable prototype to iteratively test and improve

- Using agile methodology to create more frequent and smaller check-in points with customer to build on your product

Join us for a dive into applying lean principles to new product development when you have limited resources.
