Who should decide which products pass to the next product development stage-gate? This article answers that question. For its study New Product Development: Embracing an Adaptable Process, APQC asked over 250 organizations about how they staff their gates and if they change the gatekeepers at each stage. This article discusses the results, comparing the practices of average organizations to that of top performers. Consider this information carefully, because who you position as gatekeepers can make or break your product development process.
