Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementations have often been described as changing an engine on the corporate bus...while tooling down the highway at 65. Being able to combine people, process and technology in new ways – while maintaining momentum in the marketplace – is always difficult. And, it has proven to be impossible for a growing number of companies who simply abandoned the efforts, often after a massive investment of time and dollars.
But the flip side of this scenario is the opportunity to leverage a speedy implementation into marketplace momentum. It can be done…with the right partner and some careful planning.
