Thanks Anupam.

Can you elaborate more on the cons part ? I am not sure I got that.

Moreover, have you ever implemented IPD ?

Cons are:

- It backfires if not managed properly
- Lot of rigor and planning needed at initial stages
- Tough accountability as moving pieces demand more work
- need clear metrics and stage gates to handle IPD
- IPD needs master plan that aligns with strategy.

Thanks Farhan - Some of what you've mentioned is part of what defines IPD so we can't really consider a Con but I agree with your first point about backfiring.
