Great Product Development Overview

I am a business owner doing research on how to initiate a product development process. One thing that would be extremely helpful for this course would to make the slide presentations being discussed available to view through itunes U and linked to this course. That is of course if there is no breech of confidentiality with Hershey's and the other corporations. THANKS FOR MAKING THIS AVAILABLE! : ) it is exactly what I needed. keep it up.
