White Paper: Adding Value to Stage-Gate Through the Use of Challenges 

Most companies with lengthy or complex product development cycles depend on product lifecycle management (PLM), Stage-Gate, Six Sigma and other methodologies to efficiently manage innovation cycles, reduce risk and accelerate time-to-market for new products and services.
Each of these approaches is ultimately designed with the goal of better managing, mitigating, and spreading risk.  Given today's highly competitive environment, however, most companies must balance this need to minimize risk with reaching desired outcomes more quickly and inexpensively than ever before.

InnoCentive's latest executive white paper explores one solution to this problem, specifically the use of prize-based "Challenges" - enabled via open innovation and crowdsourcing - to accelerate innovation outcomes and improve business performance through integration to Stage-Gate.
