The secret to a successful ERP implementation
After more than 35 years implementing ERP solutions all over the world, I have seen many projects succeed or fail. Fail might be a big word, because no company, that I have worked with did not go-live at some point. The difference was: • Was the contract hedged? • Was the project managed ok from the customer side? • Was the project managed ok from the partner side? • Was the project finished on time? • Was the project finished on budget? • Did the customer project team stay intact during the entire implementation? • Did the partner project team stay intact during the entire implementation process? • Was the project scope the same during the entire implementation process? • How was change requests handled? All too often, one or more of these questions are answered with a big NO! In this session, I will show examples of: • How to set up a flexible project team • How to set the expectations from start • How to break the processes into manageable bites • How to win key employees over to like the new system • How to reuse your initial analysis to create test scripts • How to actually make the user perform the testing • How to celebrate a successful implementation See you there
