"There are many adverse impacts under-developed or ambiguous user needs can have on the product development process. From time to market lost to potential remediation issues, the list of negative effects is almost endless."
LEXINGTON, Mass. (PRWEB) July 17, 2019
User needs are vital in life science product development; they are both a small part of the compliance process and the guiding force for product design. They help keep teams focused on developing consumer-focused products and narrowing project scopes overall.
“Given how important and impactful user needs are to the product development process,” says David Cronin, CEO of Cognition Corporation, “it’s natural to assume many organizations spend a lot of time on developing them. However, the reality of the situation is very different.”
Because there are so many critical compliance and activities life science product development teams need to complete, there can be fallout when it comes to user needs. The new e-book from Cognition explores the reasoning around why this happens, what the impacts of neglecting user needs look like, and how organizations can overcome those issues.
“There are many adverse impacts under-developed or ambiguous user needs can have on the product development process,” says Mr. Cronin. “From time to market lost to potential remediation issues, the list of negative effects is almost endless. We wanted to explore a little about what this list looks like, and the best preventative measures out there.”
Beyond making the case for robust user needs, the eBook looks at both simple and in-depth approaches for improving them in life science product development. Methodologies the e-book covers include: assessing the current environment, integrating user needs and risk management, and leveraging tools for innovation.
“Our new eBook is a starting point to begin thinking about how your organization can approach improving user needs,” says Mr. Cronin. “Making the effort now can have wide-ranging effects in the long-run.”
