Is Your Organization Ready to Innovate Faster?

The ability for a consumer packaged goods (CPG) company to bring successful new products to market is the lifeblood of the CPG industry. Absent a continuous supply of innovative new products, a company's portfolio will age and go stale - with a corresponding negative effect on sales and profits.

The need for quicker, more efficient innovation has never been greater for CPG companies. But is your organization ready to innovate faster?

Join Simon Ellis, Program Vice President, Supply Chain Strategies, IDC as he provides industry insights and recommendations for building the collaborative platform that is needed for successful innovation.

Participants in "Why CPG Innovators Must Move to a Collaborative Platform" will gain IDC's expert insight and analysis on areas pertinent to the industry, such as:

  • Trends and implications for CPG companies
  • Challenges to companies and impact on developing strategies for innovation
  • Introduction of a new framework for improved collaboration between R&D and manufacturing teams that enables faster innovation and improved quality
  • IDC’s opinion and recommendations for developing collaborative tools and processes
