The purpose of this paper is to develop series of product development strategies designed for different innovation levels and recommend the strategic approach for organizations frequently introducing new products.

Level of product improvement shows level of technology application differences for products. Scope of product change explains the affected area of product categories required to be modified due to the innovative product introduction to the same market. Speed of product change indicates speed of technology transmission to the same or other product categories in the same target market after innovative products are introduced to the market. The each strategy allocated by the three factors is effective method for designing their products to satisfy target customers' expectations. The factors are strategically generated by the analysis of current competitive innovative market condition. The suggested strategy enables organizations to define own competitive skills and target customer characteristics.
