Client success story: Fast-tracked medical LOA coverage for Microsoft

Simplicity - case study - Msft Elite ProgramBusiness need

The Microsoft Elite program relies on thousands of internal early adopters to “use, love, and break” the company’s latest tech to ensure launch-ready products that provide an exceptional customer experience. So when the program’s lead PM went out on an unplanned emergency leave, someone needed to step in—quickly—to keep the high-profile program running at full speed.   


Two short days after the program lead went out on leave, we fast-tracked a replacement PM to lead during her absence. Our PM jumped in headfirst, ensuring that new Elite programs launched, thousands of Elite participants were informed about new program availability, and program owners got the quality feedback they rely on to get their programs ready for market.
