Managing Your Microsoft Dynamics CRM Project: Methodologies in the Mix
As an independent consultant, I work for different clients with very different approaches to finishing a Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation successfully. The most common project management methodologies used in these projects include Sure Step, Prince II, Waterfall, DSDM, Agile, Scrum and sometimes a company's own creation.
The choice of a certain project management methodology seems easy enough, but especially for companies new to implementing Dynamics CRM or so called xRM solutions, it turns out often to be a struggle.
The struggle, in my opinion, is due to the fact that Dynamics CRM is not just standard software that can be implemented like Office. The implementation of Dynamics CRM requires consultants with expertise in different areas such as process analysis, software architecture, data modeling, programming and of course Dynamics CRM itself.
