We had very strong functional roles. Under the new strategy, Medtronic addressed lower price points in its market with the simplest versions of its new lower-cost platforms. The effect af this is that they spend alI the m on ey required to deveIop and launc h products, but it is wasted because it does not generate profitable revenue.
Also, it helps to reduce time spending on development process Crawford, During a product development stage, senior management points the way to improvement; exchange of views — ensuring that the discussion involves a full, free and frank exchange of views about what has been achieved, what needs to be done to achieve more and what individuals think about their work, the way they are guided and managed and their aspirations Bellis, This gave us a much clearer progression from basic, simple devices for the low-end of the market to high-performance, fully featured models at the high end.
We have to keep training and teaching and coaching. This is healthy thinking. He did this by artieulating very elearly what our strategy was, 50 that there was a weU-defined cri teria that could guide these deeisions. A know-how advantage was the technological knowledge that helped Medtronic to create a new product.
Management practice based on various functional groups was a weakness of the company. Many projects failed to produce product designs that could be launched competitively, and the features and functionality of most of the products the company was able to launch, lagged the competition.
Support improvements with adequate resources ensure that they are achieved within appropriate timescales.

Therefore, the company came up with the pacemaker that was implanted into the human body, and linked with the heart that creates electrical impulses in the heart and causes the normal heart beats.
Cardiologists found its single-chamber design easy to implant, and its effect was nearly as good for patients as a dual chamber pacemaker. The result was that there was little incentive to maintain a strong presence in lower tiers of the market. Time was considered as the major factor helped to determine how Medtronic perceived, interpreted, and responded to buyer needs.
Here, the technological feasibility Df the project was probed, to a v oid putting the necessity of inventing something on the critical path of a development programo Rapid prototyping was emphasized in this phase, to identify probIems and possible solutions as quickly as possible.
