Talk about chasing the Tail!!

So today I have a series of questions for persons that are involved in developing physical products. The most important one is at the end!
When you are tasked with developing a new product or adapting an existing product, what is your process to carry this out? Yep, sure you may have the double diamond or scrum or waterfall or some other defined process, but how does that work out in practicality?
Do you still find yourself chasing suppliers, chasing laboratories, chasing academia, chasing feedback or maybe even your tail?
Do you actually plan the project with clearly defined tasks, outcomes and deliverables?
Does a clarification of final costs only come about once you have finished, and you are forced to collate the information (more work) for R&D Tax claim purposes?
Have you ever considered that by breaking the entire project up into small clearly defined tasks you will save an incredible amount of time, and will give you the opportunity to excel in your area of responsibility, and will ensure steady progress, and will help to define costs, and reduce them, etc etc etc. Small clearly defined prioritised tasks.
Finally – wouldn’t it be incredibly useful and cost-effective if you could ship some of those tasks out to a facility that could deliver any of those tasks consistently, really rapidly, in any format you want, and as many as you want… kind of like 60 skilled R&D personnel sitting at your beck and call, knowing exactly how you like your work delivered…?
