Impact of Rapid Learning Cycles on Time to Breakeven and Total Revenue, in the Consumer Product Category

What Sets Us Apart?


We deeply understand the challenges of delivering physical products, from idea through conception, prototyping, sourcing, production, and post-sales support.


We've never encountered a Product Development Process (PDP) that is too complex to be managed, then streamlined. We understand why PDPs are needed, why they evolve in the way that they do, and how to make them work more effectively without ripping them completely apart. If you don't have a PDP, we can help you design one that works for you. If your process has lost efficiency, we can help you refresh it.


We ground our work in the principles that lie underneath Agile, Lean, Design for Six Sigma, Business Process Reengineering, and the latest management fads that get recycled year-after-year. We apply these principles so that they fit your teams, your company, and your industry.


We know that every company and every team is unique, and that "best practices" don't apply everywhere in the same way. This is why Rapid Learning Cycles is a framework — not a process, system, or set of practices and tools. It's intended to be tailored to fit you from the beginning.

Results of RLC Adoption in a Consumer Products Company:


In the last three decades, Stage-Gate®, CAD, Design for Six Sigma, product portfolios, and platforms have all revolutionized product development performance.

Now, Rapid Learning Cycles is leading the next revolution to accelerate physical product development.

Let the RLC process get your best ideas to market faster!
