Technological innovation is a key theme in the Navman case. Navman manufactures navigation and Global Positioning System (GPS) devices for marine, land, and mobile data applications. As the company grew and developed they faced a variety of different challenges and issues.

Some of these early issues resulted in loss of jobs and heartache for managers, but lessons were learned and the company survived these difficult times to become one of New Zealand’s most successful global manufacturers.
