The authors of “Innovate Products Faster: Graphical Tools for Accelerating Product Development”, John Carter and Jeanne Bradford, have released the Team Wheel, Attitude Influence, Function Phase Matrix, Outsourcing and Schedule Predictability Accuracy tools from the book on their website for readers to download. These tools are ready to go, pre-populated examples that help teams organize, lower political barriers, cooperate cross functionally, enable open innovation, and improve time to market.
The prevailing view of innovation is wrong. The traditional view of product development is that there is a fundamental dilemma between innovation and time to market. You can have one or the other, but not both. However, this is not a physical law like Newton’s law and is not true. “Innovate Products Faster” was written to demonstrate that companies can have both innovation and speed. This requires mastery of tools and methodologies that can be quickly understood and implemented and will support managers in making better decisions faster. For instructions on how to use the tools individuals and corporations can purchase the book at Amazon.com and download the tools at no charge from http://www.tcgen.com/book/.
