Successful Project Management

Perhaps the single most decisive element of ERP success is the knowledge, skills, abilities, and experience of the project manager. An ERP project manager must understand both the business and the technology. To avoid customization, businesses frequently change their business processes to fit the new software. An ERP project manager must understand the impact of the ERP implementation on the business, and work with business managers to ensure a smooth transition from the "as is" to the "to be" business operating environment. Fox Run Systems & Solutions experienced Project Managers understand the many requirements of an ERP Implementation.

The Key Question

The process of implementing a new ERP software system is challenging, sending your organization down a long road of beneficial, although sometimes demanding, change. The good news is, if it is done right, you’ll gain lasting benefits for your company’s operations. The key question then is how do you do it the right way?

Doing It Right

The key to doing it “right” is staying focused on the big picture and staying focused involves the following considerations:

  • Understanding the true significance of the implementation
  • Fully committing the right resources to the project
  • Being prepared to manage the changes fully and effectively
  • Planning to manage and measure the benefits
  • Fully embracing integration
  • Planning for the end of the project before you start
