Simple, Flexible, Forgiving

I've been working to improve product development for a long time.  Trends in product development and innovation have come and go - but three things have proven to stick: Agile Software Development, Phase Gate PDPs - and now Rapid Learning Cycles.

What these three have in common are that they are simple, flexible and forgiving.  A Phase Gate PDP is just a set of phases with management reviews in between.  Agile is easy to launch, and easy to re-launch if a team gets off track.  All of these methods may be heavily adapted to meet the needs of a specific organization without a lot of extra time and work. . .
