2018 was full of challenges (old and new) for product developers bringing new products to market. Companies across America, from large enterprises to small startups, have encountered exaggerated supply chain and resource constraints when trying to get to market as a result of tension between the U.S. and its trade partners.

In a special on-demand webinar, Adam Benzion and Mike Geyer will discuss the themes uncovered in Fictiv’s 2019 State of Hardware Report, including:

  • How teams are leveraging tariff engineering strategies to control costs
  • Top risks faced in bridging the gap between prototype and production
  • Insights into what new skill sets hardware developers master as they bring new products to market
