Gill has been writing about CRM, CRM Success, Microsoft Dynamics 365, ClickDimensions for many years, and now Microsoft Power Apps, Power Platform and the CoE Starter Kit.  More recently, she has recorded these musings as vlogs, which she shares here.  Her passion is helping with your CRM success - enable you to avoid the myriad of challenges that may affect your project.

Do you want to ensure that your CRM project stays at least close to your planned budget?

To avoid a project, CRM or non-CRM, budget blowout - focus on Understanding.


This is a true story.

  • A client, badly misadvised by their trusted partner
  • Thousands of dollars wasted
  • Thousands of hours of effort wasted
  • All because understanding was missing

CRM projects are rarely found to be easy.  Budget blowout - and sometimes massive blowout - is surprisingly common.

Gill Walker presents "All Roads Lead to Rome - Understanding is Key in Successful CRM"

Rome - the place where a civilisation came to an end, where an empire fell over, and where the Dark Ages began - represents failure in your CRM project. 

When a lack of understanding exists somewhere in your CRM project, the path will lead you to CRM failure. As the idiom goes, "All roads lead to Rome" - as with 85% of CRM and ERP projects that were deemed failed.
