Large corporations and businesses introduce new products and services in order to fulfill a market need and make profits. The new-product development process is discussed in your text. Using this as a basis, research product failures that have affected companies in the past and have cost them a substantial amount of money and may also have adversely affected their market reputation, tarnishing their brands. Research the web and pick one such product failure for a Fortune 500 company and describe this failure. NOTE: A product failure, not a “company” failure such as Blockbuster and not a “discontinued” product because of a failed part, such as the Ford Pinto which was in production and sold for 10 years but was discontinued because of a faulty fuel system and placement of its gas tank. Also, do not select a subscription service, platform, add-in’s, apps. Products are tangible and services are intangibles. At a minimum, you are expected to provide: Information about the company The productThe rationale for the introduction of this product The costs associated with the product (development and losses) Synthesize your position on 3 – 5 reasons or specific factors you believe most likely contributed to the product failure, using the product development process in the text Offer your analysis. This is a one to two paragraph exercise – do not go overboard, concise description of the company, product, and major reasons you believe it failed.
