Innovation of new-to-the-world systems is complex in a global economy. Increasing customer value while improving organic growth exponentially increases that complexity, particularly when that mandates a need to expand into unknown technologies and markets. In that scenario, managing multiple component streams and multiple vendors on a global basis would seem impossible at best. In the context of Concurrency, the seemingly impossible becomes possible and global complexity becomes manageable. This presentation encompasses the successful Launch of a new global system and examines the impact of Concurrency on time, speed, quality, cost and complexity.

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly 98 million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea..."
