  • Opening Statement: Rapid Development Better, faster cheaper… In today’s business climate, companies must bring new products to market on a much more stream-lined schedule. However, it is not just a matter of bringing products to market better-faster-cheaper, but also of maintaining a high level of clinical efficacy while also advancing the state of the technology. RP is a communication tool. Good, clear communication is fundamental to doing the job right. Good, clear communication is the fundamental element to doing a project good, fast and cheap . VOC - LEAN
