Event Details: 

This talk will cover how we operationalized product development for a medical device. Real life examples will be presented from my experience as a Product Manager leading teams that were developing new products or making revisions to existing products. I will discuss the challenges we faced and how we optimized new and existing products through the process. Finally, I will review lessons learned to help prevent from encountering some of the challenges we faced. The talk will be divided into five segments.

1. Medical Devices and Regulations – What is required?
2. Milestones and Gates (Waterfall model)
3. Challenges faced during the various milestones
4. Optimizations made to meet the deadlines
5. Suggestions for future modifications
