Profitable growth and product innovation are inextricably linked. As product life cycles are compressed, product portfolios need to be replenished more quickly just to stay even. It is now more critical than ever to realize revenue rapidly from new products. In a survey that we conducted of more than 650 companies in North America and Europe, executives expect new product revenue to be 35 percent of sales in 2007 – up from 21 percent in 1998. Customers are fickle; they demand more value for lower prices and they will switch for a better value. With unrelenting competitive pressures, market timing is critical. And, of course, shareholders demand profitable growth.
