Visit Customers, Find new problems to solve
Minimizing development without customer involvement is part of our SMaC recipe.

We have a renewed focus on listening to our customers.

Based on the problems found we have created prototypes and are validated them with customers via interviews and webinars.

We've leverage conferences to gain additional customer interview time.

Goal Status: ON TARGET
$600k in new products
With AX 2012 R3 looming upon us we figured we needed to make products that would replace lost revenue.

We speculated that if we could generate $600k, we would be headed in a good direction.

Goal Status: ON TARGET
Implement Innovation Process
Prior to 2014, R&D was a whole bunch of D and not much R. So we made some organizational changes and set out to implement a new process.
Build products that would generate $600k in new revenue for 2014
