Therefore, the main goal of the BPDP is to discover, document and disseminate the lean product development best practices of the most innovative companies from around the world to inspire others to start their lean journey! Fifteen companies have already shared their best practices in the two previous projects. And guess what? We are currently looking for companies interested to participate in the Best Practices Discovery Project 2017. Continue reading to find out what is in it for you and how you can join the project.
