Testing at Every Stage of Development

Up to 80% of new products fail. The reality is harsh and the reasons why are endless. Perhaps the new product couldn’t oust a customer favorite. Maybe it looked great but was too hard to use. Or, despite being a superior product, the go-to-market strategy failed. There’s always a risk when building a new product, but you can hedge your bets by understanding exactly what your customers' expectations truly are at every step of the development process.

Celebrate Failures as Much as The Successes

Strategyzer

In most companies, incentives are tied to success (e.g. sales targets, revenue). But this approach does not work for innovation. In order to succeed at innovation, companies need to build a portfolio with a pipeline of projects and accept that most of these will fail before you find one that works.

They were so popular with students that many schools prohibited them because they became a source of distraction. A few months later the trend was dead. Sometimes a smart product concept is created but the market is not ready for it — the timing is off.
