Abstract
New organisational forms such as strategic partnerships and networks are replacing simple market based transactions and traditional bureaucratic, hierarchical organisations. Consequently, a new conception of product design and development will focus on managing strategic partnerships and facilitating communication, collaboration and co-ordination in a distributed work environment. This paper examines some of these issues. First, the changing business environment is considered. Then, the shifting workforce paradigm is examined. Within these new forms the changing role of information communication technology is discussed. Finally, we present a web-enabled solution called Product Innovation Manager (PIM) which is specifically designed to enable effective product innovation in today's dynamic environment.
