A successful ERP project is so much more than merely a new IT system
To many companies, ERP projects are unknown waters, and thorough preparation will bring you a thousandfold return on investment and ensure that your company gets the desired result. The purpose of the project must have been defined before you choose an ERP system and a supplier, so that your project requirements and ambitions are met, and you don't 'just' get a new IT system.
A successful ERP project is, after all, so much more, and if the 'journey' is made correctly, the advantages are plentiful. You can achieve:
- Defined process ownership
- Efficient and automated processes
- Separation of duties
- Work descriptions
- Defined data ownership
- Process for new master data
- Correct master data
- Correct reporting
- Integrated system landscape
- Monitoring of systems and integrations
- Minimum manual data processing
- Distinct roles and responsibilities
- Involvement of the correct persons
- Process for optimising processes/systems
Bridge building is essential
Managing deliverables within various business areas as regards resources, solution, and time is a major task in connection with ERP projects. Challenges will, no doubt, arise where the project manager must make the steering group make hard choices, and therefore it is important that the reporting is genuine and frequent so that the steering group is aware of any risks and mitigating actions.
In addition, many parties are involved and consequently efforts must be made to ensure as smooth an understanding and communication between external consultants, the business, and IT, etc. as possible. Therefore, resources capable of building a bridge between the parties are essential to getting a successful ERP project.
