By having multiple departments involved in the development so there is wide-spread buy in. It is key to create development committees that have representatives from all facets of the business including product development, sales, marketing, logistics, accounting, human resources, tech, etc.This will help the project generate a wide range of ideas and viewpoints and also that all departments take ownership in development process.The committee should not be made up solely of executives, it should be made up of line workers who have fresh ideas and understand how the works gets done. There should be no "Nos" in the meetings so creative thinking is not shut down.
