Directions EMEA 2022

There can only be one!

Date: 09-11-2022 | From: 17:15 to 18:00 | Room: Hall Y5

Two project managers – one from the partner, one from the customer? Never! There can only be one! And the partner can’t do that task.
It’s common sense: A good project manager leads to a good and successful project.
But here begins the discussion: The project manager should provided by the partner or the customer? Or do we need two project managers? The answer is easy: The customer has to manage a project, e.g. the implementation of a new ERP. But this project includes much more than the partner’s project. The customer’s project includes process- and organizational changes, people management of not available resources, organization of training, stakeholder management and a lot more.
The partner’s project is simple: The partner has to deliver an application and must do some consulting. Why and how should a partner provide a project manager and delude the customer that he is part of project steering and success?
Let’s have a look into the obvious and unseen project organization. And how a good project organization in conjunction between customer and partner is the necessary fundament for a successful project.
