The book is a good starting point for everyone who wants to understand better the process stages in developing new products from ideation to market, also a decent part of the book is dedicated to measuring the results. However, the book mainly covers linear (waterfall) product development model, that usually doesn't work well, agile methods are only vaguely mentioned.
