There are a lot of great inkjet products on the market, and a lot of great ideas that never make it to market. Printing, packaging and manufacturing companies using inkjet also may struggle to deliver new applications for their clients. While the OEM or integrator role in bringing new products to market may involve a larger capital investment, their customers client facing development projects are also considered high-impact and high risk.
Everyone wants to avoid failure. But should we?
Sometimes the key to taking the risk out of projects is to allow yourself to fail faster. You don’t have to call it failing, call it a course correction, but the fact is you need to surface problems as early as possible to protect your timeline and budget. By the way, I’m not talking about an Agile development methodology. I’m talking about the ability to learn from mistakes, avoid making the same mistakes, and anticipate avoidable mistakes. While I have a lot of experience with steering customers away from doomed projects and nudging failing ones back on track, for a real evidence-based methodology you need to talk to an expert who has done the research.
