Presenting: Focus Group: Real Life Problem Solving-How Can You Overcome the barriers to Product Development Excellence? - 9 Mar 2016, 09:55

Why do 70% of PLM projects fail? One answer to that question lies in the failure of not having a clear vision of where you want your PLM to take you.

To fully realize ROI, PLM needs to be rethought as a strategic business transformation tool from management, rather than simply an IT system.

Leadership, management and strategy matters!
