Over the past few weeks I have covered my top seven characteristics of successful enterprise PLM programs. These critical success factors are a result of my observations of multiple large-scale PLM programs at a number of global organizations earlier this summer.
Successful PLM programs can articulate their value to the organization in strategic, operational, and financial terms. The program business case is used to guide priorities, make scope decisions, and keep the team focused on the business objectives of the program. Time to value should be short and the investment - return curve should be shallow.
