Infographic: Manage Your PLM Program Effectively in 12 Steps
PLM is neither easy nor straightforward. It involves defining and communicating
complex concepts, running cross-functional projects, managing organisational change – and, at the end of the day, changing the way people work. Traditional project management approaches often fall short and don’t adapt well to the complexity and duration of large PLM initiatives. Typically, they combine several parallel complex projects, which can present challenges to coordination and overall success. It’s not easy to orchestrate several large and interconnected initiatives.

But good program management definitely is a great place to start. With that in mind, here are 12 steps you can follow to manage your PLM Program effectively.
