How PLM Deployment Changes a Company's Culture

Presented by Hermann Paetzold

The decision and willingness to deploy PLM throughout a global organization, including non-technical departments, drives a cultural change process to create a more adaptive culture and to enforce cross departmental collaboration.

  • Following Robert Gilman's S-curve to monitor the progress of PLM deployment and to describe cultural change
  • Realising that the request for a user-friendly PLM system is an indicator of resistance to PLM enforcing cross departmental collaboration
  • Assigning visionary managers, who care deeply about customers, stockholders and employees, to drive and promote an adaptive corporate culture and a successful PLM deployment
  • Ensuring personal vision of each member of the implementation team to facilitate organizational change
