For the degree of Ph.D. in management, INSEAD, June 1997

Includes bibliographical references

Despite its substantial popularity, a number of recent empirical studies have made apparent that overlapping product and process design should not be seen as a panacea and is not applicable for all development projects (Eisenhardt and Tabrizi 1995, Cordero 1991). Further, increasing time pressure in many industries creates a growing need for a further compression of development processes. The lack of applicability of overlapping development activities to some types of projects together with the increasing need for further compression encouraged us to take a "second look" at the topic and provide the practical motivation of this dissertation. The focus of our research could no longer be whether or not to use overlap, but how to manage overlapping activities and when to use how much of it
