Clients engage Conduit Consulting® at all stages of product development and service innovation. Some engage us to reduce time-to-market by having our experts use our market-driven value-oriented approach to not only guide the development process, but also impartially advise on product features and functionality as well as services and service levels then validate their commercial viability, plan operations, and assess feasibility. Others engage us once they have a concept which they want to validate prior to making further investment or when they recognize being stuck and want assistance developing their idea.
