Preempting ERP Project Failure: Project Assurance Through Collaborative Intervention
Preempting Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project failure could well become the Holy Grail for organizations seeking to improve their technology infrastructure, organizational efficiency, and competitiveness. If one work in the business world, one have likely heard of or experienced horror stories with enterprise software implementations that range from daily headaches to loss of business. But the fact is that most organizations do not anticipate project failure. Instead, they plan for success, governed by budget, next step deliverables, executive expectations, and go-live deadlines. Heads-down to the task at hand, the project manager and team have little visibility and less control over potential risks within the ERP project - until it's too late.
