Manage the product development process from initial brief to the first manufactured unit
When corporate strategy could mean launching a thousand new products per year, rebranding product lines, optimizing pricing structures for existing lines, then everyone in the private label department must be committed to absorbing the resulting workload.
Success involves hundreds of suppliers, some of them already trading partners, some not. Success also requires close coordination between internal actors and all the departments involved in private label development.
