On 8 and 9 November 2012 iFactory played host to product development experts, entrepreneurs and small businesses in Belfast, Northern Ireland and Letterkenny, Ireland.
If you are in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland, U.K. and looking to further develop a product idea into a business, the team at iFactory can help. Leardon Solutions was invited to speak as part of this two-day iFactory event. Joe Donoghue and Murray Learmonth from Leardon Solutions spoke about entrepreneurial product development and how to be successful even when your resources are limited.
The event was part of the iFactory iLearning series with this particular event titled “Product Design – The blocks for success” and featured keynote speaker Christian Majgaard M.Sc.,B.A. who is known as “The Man Who Recaptured The True Mission Of Lego”. iFactory, part-financed by the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg IVA Cross Border Programme, is an innovation support programme helping small businesses grow their companies.
Some of the main topics that were covered during the event included a session about product development in general as well as a motivating presentation by Mr. Majgaard discussing the customer focused product development at Lego. Participants of the events were curious about developing a prototype and what to expect from the process in terms of cost and time involvement. Leardon provided sound advice based on their industrial design, prototyping, manufacturing, and product development life cycle knowledge.
