Nebraska Business Development Center Brings Lean Product Development to UNO July 26

Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) is offering a new workshop aimed at getting products to market faster. This half-day intensive workshop will be held Friday, July 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Mammel Hall room 320 A/B and will introduce companies to the process of how to become sustainable.

The goal of the workshop is to focus participants on their companies’ shortcomings in the product development and launch arena, and to demonstrate that methods and tools are available to make rapid and significant improvements in resource utilization, product differentiation, time-to-market, and risk mitigation. All of which will translate directly to their bottom line.

The fee to attend is $299, and up to five employees are included for that price. Individual pricing is not included.

To register, visit the NBDC website.

For more information or if you have questions about this workshop, call 402.554.2521.
