Fostering Partner Collaboration

Collaboration is one of those values that most companies strive for as part of their culture and their ERP projects, but many fall short of in terms of achievement. Here are three things that will foster the right environment for collaboration on ERP projects:

1.    Strong leadership from willing implementation partners
2.    Open lines of clearly defined communication channels between partners
3.    Defined roles and responsibilities for implementation partners

The Value of Change Management

Prosci's 2016 Best Practices in Change Management report finds that 95% of projects with excellent change management programs met or exceeded their project objectives.

ERP Success Factors: The Importance of Engaged Executive Sponsorship

There was a time when it was enough to say that a project had an executive sponsor. Every project was assigned a “sponsor” but some were sponsors in name only.

  1. Set the tone and vision for project success
  2. Develop realistic scope and expectations
  3. Communicate with and empower the team
  4. Be accountable for the project and team success
