LEAN PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT (LPD) FOCUSES ON THE ELIMINATION OF WASTE IN ALL FACETS OF THE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS. IT PROVIDES A VERY PRACTICAL TOOL-KIT FOR BETTER, FASTER, CHEAPER EXECUTION OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS.
Designed for an Irish audience by our expert team, in collaboration with Ron Mascitelli (global LPD thought-leader), the programme takes all the benefits of lean, and applies them in a very thoughtful and relevant way to the changeable, dynamic nature of the innovation world. The result is an approach which fits right in with existing product development processes, and can be applied in any sector, adding real value to current activities.
IRDG’s LPD programme is delivered over 4 months, for a group of up to 12 companies, with 2-4 people per company attending. In addition to the content, there’s immense value through one-to-one coaching, peer learning with the cross-sectoral companies attending, and in the application of the tools to an existing in-house project right throughout the programme.
Coming with the option of significant funding support by Enterprise Ireland, Údarás na Gaeltachta and IDA Ireland, this practical & proven 4-day programme is already adding real value for industry and can provide a mix of classroom and in-house activity. Our next programme kicks off on 15th January, but early application is required for this one, particularly if funding support is to be sought.
