Kalypso Launches Next Generation Rapid Results PLM Methodology

March 28, 2012

BEACHWOOD, OHIO – After nearly eight years of product lifecycle management (PLM) deployments across various vertical markets, a firm can learn a lot. Putting that experience and knowledge to use, Kalypso, the world’s premier innovation consulting firm, today launched the next generation of Rapid Results. Kalypso’s Rapid Results is a business benefits-driven PLM implementation methodology that helps organizations extract value and sustain results from their PLM investments.

Implementing a PLM system can be a complex, demanding journey for any organization. A successful deployment hinges on delivering a total PLM solution that combines business value, organizational change and technology. Kalypso’s Rapid Results is designed to help organizations realize business benefits from their PLM programs more quickly, while simultaneously managing the risks of a major business change program.

“At Kalypso, we view PLM deployment as a business transformation process, not a technology installation. Because of this, Kalypso’s Rapid Results is designed to be integrated, flexible and iterative,” said Richard Mizuno, partner, Kalypso. “The power of Rapid Results is in its relentless pursuit of business results – facilitated by a core, quick-win design approach that engages the end user community throughout the process.”

Rapid Results’ structured approach enables Kalypso to partner collaboratively with clients, helping to facilitate, guide, and support organizations through all phases of the PLM implementation process. This collaboration consistently engages the end user community in the project work itself, enhancing and improving the user adoption process.

To accommodate the many different entry points to a PLM implementation program, Rapid Results is designed to fit any PLM implementation – regardless of size, scope, maturity or software solution. Industry solution models and Kalypso leading practices – in addition to accelerators, tools and templates – help to increase project quality and faster time-to-benefit.

As a firm, Kalypso is exclusively focused on innovation, product development and PLM. The firm, celebrating its eighth year, combines deep experience in strategy, process improvement and organizational effectiveness with expert skills in large-scale PLM technology deployment to help clients deliver on the promise of PLM.
