Although companies are capable of increasing revenue, their problem is that they lose part of this income due to ineffective risk management, particularly in relation to development of new product:

1. Lower revenue after introduction of a product onto the market compared to the revenue planned in the project, due to lower sales, lower realised price, delayed introduction onto the market by one to two years.
2. Higher costs for a new product due to incorrect design, high additional costs due to poor quality in processes and high costs for warranty servicing.
3. Poor return on investments into the new project compared to estimates, prolonged development time, high percentage of delayed projects and extended delays in relation launch of production.
4. Higher investments due to alterations to prototype samples, additional wage costs.

Up to 70% of these consequences originate during the development process.

Design to Risk

Design methodology focused on designing robust products and the related processes, which are resistant to the negative effects of planned and unforeseeable threats. The methodology teaches how to apply this knowledge during product development and the related processes for prevention, detection and mitigation of risks. How to manage development projects from the aspect of risks, how to develop risk management in technical and development divisions within the company as managerial and executive topics.

Main topics of the individual training modules

Module 1 – Risk Management how to expediently view risk and measure it during the development process in order to execute effective and efficient prevention, how to implement detection and reinforce it with mitigation to minimize damages. How to develop risk management as a managerial programme and the ability of employees to handle risk.
Module 2 – Product Design to Risk – How to design products that are robust in relation to the effects of stressors and unforeseeable events and reliably deliver the required functionality?
Module 3 – Process Design to Risk – How to design processes that are resistant to mistakes, without these being transferred to the product?
Module 4 – Project Design to Risk – How to design, realize, manage and terminate development projects from the aspect of minimization of all types of risk (functional, process, project)?

For each module you will be provided with our case study from a Czech or foreign company with a commentary.
