The past decade has seen a vast upsurge in the importance
attached to customer service from businesses operating in both the
B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to consumer) ﬁelds.
This increased activity has paid major beneﬁts to early adopters.
Differentiation through service is rapidly becoming a vital addi-
tion to any business process. Organisations that are at the fore-
front are reaping beneﬁts in terms of customer loyalty, customer
retention and employee satisfaction. Yet this is just the tip of the
Like the dotcom organizations that went bust at the end of the last
century, CRM (Customer Relationship Management) is making a
powerful and dramatic comeback. Today, the most exciting growth
areas of the commerce are being found in the electronic arena. The
same is true of CRM.
In the late 1990s and early years of the 21st century, CRM was
offered up as the next wave of marketing. The tools and techniques
that would make traditional marketing obsolete

Human Resources Management.
uman resources management is required to make the most efﬁcient use of the project human resources. This includes all of the people involved in the project—the stakeholders, sponsors, customers, other departments, the project team, subcontractors, and all others. Organizational planning involves the organizing of the human resources. These are the roles, responsibilities, and relationships of the people that are on the project team. As in all things in project management, human resources management takes place throughout the project.
M arketing Management is the leading marketing text because its content and organization
consistently reflect changes in marketing theory and practice. The very first
edition of Marketing Management, published in 1967, introduced the concept that
companies must be customer-and-market driven. But there was little mention of what have
now become fundamental topics such as segmentation, targeting, and positioning.
What is marketing?
Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes for creating,
communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer
relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders. The process
through which VALUE is exchanged.
Cost management is the completion of the project management triple constraint of cost, schedule, and scope. Each of these must be completed in order to complete the project on time and on budget and to meet all of the customer’s expectations.

In the past, the project goal was to meet or exceed the customer’s...
Without a doubt, the most common reason that projects fail is because of poor scope deﬁnition. By that I mean that the expectations of the stakeholders, and especially the client or sponsor, are different than the expectations of the project team. This is a most difﬁcult problem, but it is critical to the success of the project that it is overcome. There are many reasons why a project fails, and understanding them will give us insights to how to avoid them. The relationship between the project team and the customer has to reverse itself at the time of...
Over the past decade, executives have witnessed an explosion of management tools
such as Customer Relationship Management, Scenario and Contingency Planning,
and the Balanced Scorecard. Demands of increasing competition in the global
marketplace are driving the explosion, while accelerated, lower-cost delivery systems
for ideas and information have enabled it. Today the sheer volume of ideas can
overwhelm a management team.
The first edition of Managing Quality sold well and the second and third editions sold even more
copies which, according to the publisher, is unusual for a book of this type. The fourth edition
builds on the success of these previous editions.
In the book the term total quality management (TQM) is used to describe the process of transformation
by which all parts of the organization have a focus on quality with the ultimate objective
of customer satisfaction and delight.
