Abstract [en]

This article reports experiences from five Swedish product development organizations,striving to decrease the lead time of the development projects. All companies used different strategies leading to varying results. One of the studied companies managed a50% lead time reduction, another have similar results within reach. The other approaches has not, or not yet, shown satisfying results. The two winning strategies both required a high degree of top management support, however in different ways. Either the courage to make drastic changes or persistence to continue with an initiative over time seems be necessary.
