The term "whole product" is  used in the context of product development to refer to a product definition  concept that emphasises delivering all aspects of a product which are  required for it to have its full value. This would include training materials,  support systems, cables, how-to recipes, additional hardware/software,  standards and procedures, implementation, applications consulting - any  constitutive elements necessary to assure the customer will have a successful  experience and achieve at least minimum required value from the product. In  other words, the "whole product" includes everything needed for the  customer to be able to use the product as intended and receive the full  benefit of its purchase. Developing and delivering a "whole  product" requires close coordination among all teams involved in  creating, marketing, selling and supporting the product. Each team must  understand their own scope of work and how their work fits into and impacts  the work of other groups. Even more importantly, they must all be aligned  around a shared understanding of what value the product is meant to deliver  to the customer and how that value will be delivered. Without this shared  understanding, it is too easy for individual teams to make decisions that end  up sub-optimising the whole product.
