Samantha's top tips:

  • "Look to your users for their requirements, involve them in the beginning of the product lifecycle process so that the product will be successful in later stages."
  • "Use your product lifecycle to determine how to allocate your company's resources - the amount of research and marketing for each product will be decided by the perceived duration of that product's lifecycle."
  • "Ensure that resources in the development stage are not wasted in subsequent stages of introduction and growth - always match your efforts at every stage."
