Abstract [en]

The literature on the front end in the New Product Development (NPD)literature is fragmented with respect to the identification and analysis of the factors thatare critical to successful product development. The article has a two-fold purpose. First,it describes, analyses, and synthesizes those factors through a literature review of theresearch on the front end in NPD. Second, it conceptualizes a framework that featurestwo types of success factors: foundational success factors (common to all the firm’sprojects) and project-specific success factors (appropriate for the firm’s individualprojects). The article makes recommendations for the management of this importantphase of product development, discusses limitations of relevant previous research, andoffers suggestions for future research. The article makes a theoretical contribution withits analysis and synthesis of the reasons for success in front-end activities and apractical contribution with its conceptual framework that can be used as an analyticaltool by firms and their product managers.
