Charting the Ocean Of Opportunity for New Product Development

We’d like to invite you to attend the Charting the Ocean Of Opportunity for New Product Development webinar. Robin A. Karol, Ph.D., NPDP will be our featured speaker. Register to view the webinar on Tuesday, March 18th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm eastern standard time.

About the presentation:
Ideas are the starting point for new product development success. Without creativity, and without the ability to see what could be rather than what is, a company cannot come up with new products. Coming up with ideas for new products is not a random or chance occurrence. It is not dependent on having the best most creative people around. Coming up with ideas happens because you create the environment and implement a process that enables the generation of large numbers of quality ideas. You have to have the right mixture of people involved as well as skilled facilitation and tools to move the process along. In addition, you must have the view of the customer, or potential customer, in the generation of new ideas for a product.

When I attempt to view the archived version of the Webinar 'Charting the Ocean of Opportunity for New Product Development' that actually took place on 3/18/08, I am able to view the Windows Media Player version of the webinar, but there is no sound. Can this be fixed or can you provide me information on how I can get a copy with sound.

Thank you.
