Topic: Winning the customer over with effective Project Management "An MMS Case Study"
Abstract: Once you've made the sale, you need to deliver. You
initiate a project and the outcome is a dismal failure. You end up with
one very dissatisfied customer. What happens though, if the customer
gives you a second chance? You cannot afford to fail a second time. How
do you guarantee success on a complex program of work having
experienced failure before? Find out how Ericsson used the lessons
learned technique combined with effective project management processes
to engage the customer and successfully deliver a hugely complex
Multimedia Messaging System. More importantly, find out what critical
factors contributed to a happy customer and how Ericsson turned around
customer perception using effective project management techniques.
