Once again some great insight from MindTribe on hardware development. I always appreciate writing like this because it doesn’t boast of success but instead focuses on potential failure or weak points in one’s process – and that can usually only come from experience. And sharing that experience with others is key to both your personal and company growth, as well as the growth of others, be they your hardware development partners or eventually your customers.

MindTribe break the possible mistakes into three headers:

  • FAILING TO FULLY ENGAGE WITH YOUR CONTRACT PARTNER
  • NOT UNDERSTANDING YOUR CONTRACTOR’S CORE CAPABILITIES
  • ENGAGING WITH A CONTRACT PARTNER THAT’S NOT ENGAGED
