This book is designed to provide the body of knowledge (BoK) required by candidates studying for PDMA's New Product Development Professional certification examination. The guide is divided into seven chapters, consistent with the seven topics used as a basis for the NPDP examination. These are: 1. Strategy 2. Portfolio management 3. New products process 4. Culture, organization, and teams 5. Tools and metrics 6. Market research 7. Life cycle management These chapters will cover the fundamental principles of product development and product management, which can be applied to a wide range of product and service industries. The information is intended to provide the basis for ongoing learning and continuous improvement, both in the individual and their organization. Clearly, there is a wide variation across industries. The type of products or services, the markets, organization size, and structure all contribute to differences in the approach to product development and product management. It is not possible to address the full range of specific practices and processes used in all industries. Instead, this book focuses on the fundamental principles that underpin successful product development and product management across a broad range of industries and individual organizations. Throughout the book we endeavor to provide relevant examples of the specific ways in which these fundamental principles are applied to a range of product and service situations. The material provided as the basis for the NPDP certification can be applied to the full range of product development projects included in most company portfolios: - New-to-the-company products or services - Line extensions - Cost reductions - Product or service improvements - features, functionality, aesthetics Throughout each chapter we have provided self-learning exercises. These are intended to encourage the reader to relate the specific material covered in that chapter to their own organization and personal experiences. These exercises are optional and are not a required component for successful certification.

It provides seven sample practices developed using the guidance. Complementing this report is an on-line Web Board sponsored by the Transportation Research Board's Committee on Transit Fleet Maintenance.

Routledge Handbook of Tourism and Sustainability from C. Michael Hall, Stefan Gössling, Daniel Scott is one of the winners of the ITB BookAwards 2016 in the category Specialist tourism literature! Sustainability remains one of the major issues in tourism today. Concerns over climate and environmental change, the fallout from the global economic and financial crisis, and the seeming failure to meeting UN Millennium development goals have only reinforced the need for more sustainable approaches to tourism, however they be defined. Given the centrality of sustainability in tourism curricula, policies, research and practice it is therefore appropriate to prepare a state of the art handbook on the relationship between tourism and sustainability. This timely Handbook of Tourism and Sustainability is developed from specifically commissioned original contributions from recognised authors in the field, providing a systematic guide to the current state of knowledge on this area. It is interdisciplinary in coverage and international in scope through its authorship and content. The volume commences with an assessment of tourism’s global environmental, e.g. climate, emissions, energy use, biodiversity, water use, land use, and socio-economic effects, e.g. economic impacts, employment and livelihoods, culture. This then provides the context for sections outlining the main theoretical frameworks and constructs that inform tourism and sustainability, management tools and approaches, and the approaches used in different tourism and travel industry sectors. The book concludes by examining emerging and future concerns in tourism and sustainability such as peak-oil, post-carbon tourism, green economy and transition tourism. This is essential reading for students, researches and academics interested in the possibilities of sustainable forms of tourism and tourism’s contribution to sustainable development. Its assessment of tourism’s global impact along with its overviews of sectoral and management approaches will provide a benchmark by which the sustainability of tourism will be measured for years to come.
