Slideshow Graphic Template.pptxTech4PD Debate on Social Tech in Product Development and Beam me Up Chad!


The latest edition of Tech4PD shares Tech-Clarity’s view that social techniques are ready for prime time in product development. Chad Jackson of Lifecycle Insights contends that it will take time, in particular because social capabilities are more likely to be adopted in formal business processes. I fundamentally disagree and believe that the low-hanging fruit is in ad-hoc processes where product developers and engineers need to share information.
