Who we work with

Industries We Work With

The Auxilium NPD success team works with  R&D-focused professionals and teams to increase productivity through better tools, methods and processes.

Each of our team has decades of real world experience in senior roles with leading companies before joining Auxilium.  We learned what works and what doesn’t so that we could develop the most concise, practical and powerful programs for teams. Since 2002 we have helped hundreds of teams improve their processes, manage critical projects, and drive change. As a result of our experience, we have combine the latest insights and proven practices into practical programs.

We also learned early that agile provided great benefits over traditional processes. To help hardware-based teams get the benefits of agile, we started the Modified Agile for Hardware Development (MAHD) Framework. in 2017.  This framework helps companies seamlessly integrate agile methods to existing NPD processes.

How Do We Help Teams Excel?

  • Consulting Services – Our programs start with understanding your goals, challenges and situation. We then work together to develop programs to drive change, inspire innovation, improve process and develop talent.

  • Coaching – We specialize in helping new leaders quickly build the skills in leadership, communication and planning to be successful in any situation.

  • Learning Programs – Our programs are designed for fast success. Each course, whether online or onsite, is planned and refined to be the most concise and practical possible.

  • Facilitation  – A great way to learn is by seeing others do it. We often facilitate project kickoffs using agile skills to show how they can improve collaboration and focus.

How Can We Help You?

At Auxilium each of our team members has over 20 years of product development experience in a wide range of industries and roles. While our latest focus has been how to improve product development with agile methods, this means that we’ve learned a lot from many projects, cultures and challenges. We are always delighted to use this experience to help you save time, energy and money so you can avoid mistakes we’ve already seen.

Here are some typical types of our consulting engagements:

Increasing PD Speed and Efficiency

One Fortune 500 computer company needed to enhance their development process to increase speed, reduce chaos and drive better decisions with a focus on customer needs. Auxilium provided an assessment of their current process, identified gaps and helped implement new agile methods.

Improving Quality with Agile

A consumer audio company needed to enhance product quality and quickly get a large backlog of new product plans to market. Auxilium worked with their team to develop clear prioritization techniques and agile methods to focus on the most valuable products and features at all times. Their development cycles have been reduced significantly with reliable products more aligned to market needs. 

Enhance Innovation

A test and measurement company had cutting edge technology and needed help with their front end to improve their ability to identify and execute new opportunities. Auxilium helped them implement agile methods with rapid learning cycles to quickly evaluate opportunities through market and technical feasibility activities and use incremental funding techniques to lower risk.

The bottom line is that we know every engagement will have unique goals and characteristics, but by applying the right approach and methods, difficult objectives are achievable. We’re here to help.
