FREQUENTLY IGNORED ADVICE - Important advice for organisations implementing new ERP systems

Good advice for anyone involved in ERP implementations

This book will make your implementatIon so much easier

Most organisations implement a new ERP system once every 5-10 years. That is longer than the average employment of their staff. In other words: most companies lack experience and know-how when it comes to large software implementations. Internal and external project members will no doubt be ready to provide advice on every possible topic; design approach, staffing, software environments, methodologies, test approaches... but it is hard to understand this advice if you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into. Can you really foresee what the consequences are of following or not following given advice?

This book helps you get a better view of what an ERP implementation is like, what problems and risks are likely to arise, and what methods or tools can be used to mitigate those. Following the structure of a typical implementation project, lots of good advice will be given within the context of each implementation phase, for example:

  • How to use internal and external resources on a project

  • Why you should use your own implementation methodology

  • How to avoid implementing what you already have

  • How to run a good design & review process

  • Why patching is important and why you should avoid modifications

After each chapter has set the scene and provided lessons learned, the chapter closes with the top 10 advice. It explains why the advice is important, what the most heard excuses are for not following it, and what could go wrong if the advice is ignored.

If this is your first ERP implementation, or if this is your tenth: you will benefit from – and enjoy – reading Frequently Ignored Advice.
