Nielsen's 12 factors of success in market for new products

After 6 years of R&D research, studying 600 product launches, Nielsen identified 12 factors that are common to every winning launch. Innovations that perform strongly across all 12 factors in pre-market testing are statistically proven to have a 75% chance of success in market.

Understanding these metrics is key for those thinking of launching new products and even considering being more successful with your existing ones.
