The presentation will depart from the observations that management of product development and projects is an area filled with a lot of normative advices on what to do - and not to do. My observations is different, as there seem to be a number of dilemmas in the innovation processes moving from from idea to product, and that these dilemmas are not just wiped away by reading more textbooks or adding another process model on top of the existing ones. Management in these situations requires the ability to deal with the dilemmas and learn to live with them - accept them - and be able to do what some have called a “bricolage” of the available options - with a vision.

Discussant: Dr. Steve Conway, School of Business, University of Leicester
