The fuzzy front end of new product development for discontinuous innovations: a theoretical model.
For example, Hauser, Tellis and Griffin (2006) observe that "there is no doubt that the 'fuzzy front end' of a PD process has a big effect on a product's ultimate success." Yet prior research mainly focuses on NPD collaboration with suppliers in the NPD phase (e.g., Koufteros, Vonderembse and layaram 2005; Parker, Zsidisin and Ragatz 2008; Hong and Hartley 2011) but neglects the role of suppliers in the FFE phase.

That work also introduced the term "front end of innovation," intended to replace the more expressionistic term "fuzzy front end," coined by Reinertsen (1985), with its implications that the front end is mysterious, lacks accountability, and cannot be managed.
