Product Development & Optimization

Product Development & Optimization

Effective product development organization and strategy is often measured by having the 'right product at the right place at the right time'. Business success is not measured by the ability to conceive a great idea but rather by the ability to put that idea into action. As the automotive and transport industries experience an era of unprecedented disruption, the traditional methods of getting a product to market are increasingly unfit for purpose.  

Driving change in product development organizations can be daunting, which is why many companies look to Ricardo Strategic Consulting (RSC) for assistance. At RSC, our team of experienced consultants supports our clients as a trusted advisor in navigating the product development process, from initial strategy right through to product launch. Building on over 100 years of technical experience of the wider Ricardo group, the RSC team combines this with strong business acumen to develop and implement processes and products that are cost effective and technically robust.

Our RSC team assists clients with defining and implementing world-leading innovation and product development strategies and can provide targeted assistance in areas such as change management, complexity management, and design cost improvement. The RSC team partners with our clients on all aspects of product development, from incremental evolution to clean-sheet design.

Your company can reap the benefits of an industry-leading product development process, and RSC can help you get there.
