We’ve all heard the horror stories about how hard it can be to successfully launch a new product to the market. In a consumer product category such as household cleaning products, the industry success rate is a dismal 15 percent to 20 percent according to a Bloomberg Businessweek interview with former Proctor & Gamble CEO, Alan “A.G.” Lafley.
According to a study by global consulting firm Accenture, “Times are hard when it comes to new-product development. Half the companies in our survey experience budget overruns in new-product development. Forty-two percent of the companies report an overly slow pace as they move a product from idea to prototype to launch.”
Launching the new product to the market will be a critical milestone for a small company or entrepreneur. So let’s t

WASHINGTON (AP) — A stronger-than-expected April rebound in job creation and recent dramatic discoveries of vast U.S. oil and gas reserves are helping to lift the American economy out its long funk.
The economic good news is also drawing attention to the importance of private-sector innovation rather than government policy in fostering growth.
The Labor Department’s report that payrolls expanded by 165,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate declined to a four-year low of 7.5 percent does not represent explosive job growth by any measure.
Yet the report offered a big sigh of relief to President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress.
It also may help blunt Republican criticism of Obama’s policies and make it easier for him to give more attention to other issues on his agenda, including immigration, gun control and global warming.
At the same time, it provided the GOP with more support for their call for a smaller government and fewer regulations on business.
The recent jobs improvements were mostly driven by private-sector gains independent of action by the president and Congress.

When Jaime Martin del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu opened their Bell restaurant 15 years ago, some customers wondered if they knew how to cook.
Accustomed to Mexican food laden with sour cream, melted cheddar cheese and mild salsa that has long been served up in the Los Angeles area, patrons balked at eating La Casita Mexicana’s enchiladas covered in pumpkin seed mole, cotija cheese and red onions. Many of the doubters, to the restaurateurs’ surprise, were Mexican American.
Regional Mexican cooking isn’t a tough sell anymore. Del Campo and Arvizu are staples of food shows on Spanish-language television, and mole aficionados from throughout the region frequent La Casita.
Now the duo are working with three other ambitious and media-savvy Mexican restaurateurs to raise the profile of their homeland’s rich regional cuisines even further. Their Taste of Mexico Assn.
