Cutting-edge techniques to tackle the chaos, risk, and complexity of NPD projects and generate new revenue and growth

PMI - NPD SIGPresented by Management Roundtable
with support from
the Project Management Institute NPD SIG


  • Dynamic keynote sessions provide the big picture on being agile, leading complex programs, and knowing which process to use when. Choice of tracks and practitioner application examples from diverse industries allow you to focus on your key interests.
  • Gain mastery in Agility, the Toyota Method, Six Sigma and/or Critical Chain - all techniques to enable greater speed, profit, quality, customer value; choose from four optional half-day Pre-Conference Workshops on Monday October 20

(see Pre-Conference Workshops for full session descriptions)

  • Birds-of-a-feather breakout groups for you to exchange best practices and questions about Agility/Lean, Six Sigma, Critical Chain, Phase-Gate with peers and experts.
  • Gain tips and coaching on your unique challenges at Expert-Led Topic Roundtables - a highly popular feature of Management Roundtable events. Based on participants' choices, discussions will focus on topics such as rapid decision-making, risk management, project recovery, metrics, "innovation on a schedule" and more. Well-known NPD and project management gurus will facilitate.
  • Reference Binder complete with presentation materials - access to downloadable slides after the conference
  • Networking and social opportunities - Some of the best learning takes place at coffee breaks, lunches, or over some wine, beer and hors d'oeuvres. Generous time allowed for breaks; two social receptions are also offered. Email list of attendees (by permission) provided for post-conference networking.
  • Team benefits - Sign up with 2 of your colleagues (team of 3 or more) and save $100 each. The bigger the team, the greater the savings - and more traction to implement besides! (see Registration Info for fees)

MRT's Unique No-Risk Policy - Not only is your satisfaction 100% guaranteed (for credit or refund of fee), we have a penalty-free cancellation policy up until 5 business days prior to the event. (There is a $200 administration fee if you need to cancel after that, but you may send a substitute at any time.)
