4 ways to improve your odds of implementing ERP well the first time
Implementing more than one multimillion-dollar ERP system may seem impractical and far-fetched for most companies, but Lora Cecere, Supply Chain Insights' founder and CEO, says it happens regularly.
"I've worked with a number of companies that have implemented ERP three or four times," says Cecere, "and they haven't done it well any of those times."
Because enterprise-wide software implementations eat up precious dollars, man-hours, and resources, Cecere says firms really need to focus on getting it right the first time. "Instead of being in such a hurry to get the implementation done," she explains, "take the time to focus on doing it well. You'd be surprised at how many companies completely miss this point."
