Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

This short guide explains what customer-centricity means in terms of how a company works and its importance for project performance; using tools and processes to guide customer-centric thinking will help to see the results of engagement and demonstrate how things can improve, even on difficult projects. The text provides a straightforward implementation guide to moving a business to a customer-centric way of working, using a model called Exceed, and provides some guidance for ensuring that customer-centricity is sustainable and supported in the organization. Customer-Centric Project Management is both a practical guide and a rigorous, well-researched text that draws on established models and uses the example of project implementation in a healthcare environment to demonstrate the impact of this significant way of thinking about value.

Adopting a customer-centric mindset and using the Exceed process to measure and monitor customer satisfaction will help move towards working with happier, more engaged stakeholders.
