Dr Geoff Archenhold, Company Director
"The KTP was very rewarding as it allowed optimised new product development processes to be embedded improving productivity, time to market and design practice innovation. Strong academic links were invaluable to bring new ideas and processes into the company resulting in near double company turnover since the project start."
James Pryde, KTP Associate
"Experience balancing economic pressures, user requirements and company constraints in commercial product development was extremely valuable. I saw first-hand the key role it plays in commercial strategy and developed project management skills incorporating budgeting, team work and self-discipline within a very fulfilling position."
Jon Rackley, Lead Academic
"James embedded a new product development system that reduced time to market by more than 6 months and introduced new capabilities such as electronic, mechanical and optical design. The University learnt a great deal from their integration in an envionment with no previous analysis systems and saw work presented at a number of international conferences and publications."
