In today's difficult economic environment, knowledge of innovation and new product development best practices is more important than ever to execute more with less resources, and to build a competitive advantage at both organization and individual level.

"Today more than two-thirds of the New Product Development team proudly tout NPDP certification and bring to bear all the credibility and reach of a proven New Product Development Body of Knowledge, helping to tear down walls of doubt and open up new opportunities to innovate and create new value.", Donald Comer, New Product Development Director, Fedex (PDMA Visions Magazine, April 2006, Certification News).

"A promotion to Process Manager and influence with senior managers were results of my NPDP certification efforts...", NPLearning alumni

This two-day training is perfect for those who want to learn about new product development, as well as those seeking PDMA's certification as a New Product Development Professional (NPDP) . The class is capped at 20 students to foster the best possible learning environment to address each individual's learning needs. Both individuals and small teams will benefit from the diverse group interactions and immersion in this off-site workshop.
