“Newly defined goals are not setbacks,” says Dr. Landmann. “If requirements on the market or at the customer change or can be grasped more sharply, a modification or adjustment of the target in question is part of the process.” Therefore, changes occurring in the middle of the development process are always accepted positively and taken as an improvement, especially to avoid a development past the market and the customers. For this purpose, the sales department works closely together with the application technology, the development department as well as the product management. Dr. Landmann emphasizes: “You must not confuse perceived needs with real demand,” which is why “the constant exchange with customers and the evaluation of data from the market environment is so important.”
