New evidence reveals that Agile methods, until now used strictly for software developments, can be integrated with traditional gating approaches to yield significant potential benefits for manufacturers of both B2B and B2C physical products.

A handful of leading and early adopters, such as Honeywell, LEGO, Tetra Pak, and Procter & Gamble are experimenting with the new Agile-Stage-Gate approach, and are achieving very positive results. Indeed, this new Agile-Stage-Gate hybrid approach promises to be the most significant change to our thinking about how new-product development should be done since the introduction of today’s popular gating systems thirty years ago!
