PLM planning is often 'fail-safe' and conservative, with the built-in assumption that things will somehow not turn out as well as expected.

Target-Oriented PLM is a structured way of moving PLM planning onto the front foot, drawing ideas from stakeholders to raise the horizons of where PLM can go.
