4-2 flowchart: presentation | Management homework help

 

Overview

In Milestone One, you recommended an innovation option (incremental or discontinuous) to the organization from the course scenario. Now that senior management of the company has approved your recommendation, your task is to find an efficient process for your cross-functional team to follow during the development of your innovation. Remember that your perspective is still that of a middle manager for one of the top U.S. producers of luxury and mass-market automobiles and trucks.

You and your team are considering using Cooper’s stage-gate process for new product development. This is a standard process that shows the journey of an idea from conceptualization to the market. You will create a detailed flowchart to share with your cross-functional team on one possible process for implementing the innovation recommendation you have made.

Prompt

Create a PowerPoint presentation with the following requirements, including a detailed flowchart. Ensure the presentation is useful in helping your team understand the stage-gate process. Your presentation should include the following:

  1. Describe the major elements of the stage-gate process (1–2 slides).
    • How many stages are in the process?
    • What is the purpose of each stage?
  2. Create a stage-gate process flowchart (1 slide) using proper shapes for each step in your flowchart.
    • In the flowchart or speaker notes, list an example of an activity at each stage.
    • In the flowchart or speaker notes, list a decision criterion at each stage using the company. Some examples of decision criteria include:
      1. Filter ideas to the preliminary investigation
      2. Filter projects to business opportunities
      3. Filter projects to product or process development
      4. Filter products to limited launch
      5. Filter products to international marketing
  3. Discuss the implications of using the stage-gate process (1–2 slides).
    • When is the use of the stage-gate process appropriate?
    • How could the stage-gate process slow down innovation?
    • Is the stage-gate process more conducive to an incremental or discontinuous innovation?

Guidelines for Submission

Using PowerPoint, create a presentation that is 3 to 5 slides with detailed speaker notes that highlight the important points you want to emphasize to your team. If references are included, they should be cited in APA format. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.
