Mr. Jeff Groh, BSME, MBA is now offering new product development (NPD) consulting services to small and mid-sized companies. With over 30 years of industrial experience in new product development, marketing, customer support and sales, his unique qualifications help companies who manufacture highly engineered products improve NPD effectiveness. Most recently, Jeff was V.P. of Technology for a large analytical instrument manufacturer based in New Castle, DE. Through his management of the R&D organization and its multi-million dollar budget, he oversaw dozens of active projects across (3) geographic locations.
Commenting on the new consulting business, Mr. Groh states:
“New products are the lifeblood of any company. The process involves every step from an initial idea to a product generating revenue and earnings. It is by far the single most complex business process and every company can improve the effectiveness of some if not all aspects of how they develop new products. The payoff can be substantial and drive higher revenue and earnings growth. Small to mid-sized companies have special needs and New Product Visions has the experience to help them improve the effectiveness of their process.”
The services provided include consulting and seminars. Areas of expertise include the overall NPD process, portfolio planning, project definition, project management, phase gate development processes, agile and scrum for software development, metrics, human factors and team dynamics, retaining and hiring staff, organization structure and the impact of physical space on NPD. In addition, New Product Visions can help companies prepare for an acquisition by upgrading their NPD processes or to implement a formal process for ISO certification.
