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.
