    Abstract

    The paper explores the process of creating a bespoke New Product Development Procedure for the heavy engineering firm Howden through a collaborative Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the University of Strathclyde. The act of transferring knowledge was done by using a visual methodology and the paper explores the reasoning behind why using this methodology was so successful.
