ERP Project Management

The blunt truth is that ERP deployments generally fail in the project stage more often than not. This is largely due to poor planning and lack of adequate understanding of what is happening ( download our 10 tips document which addresses the common pitfalls encountered in project environments ) In a recent survey carried out by ERP Services we found that most ERP managers of blue chip firms in Sri Lanka require assistance to manage their ERP deployments, which are seemingly never ending.

Open-ended ERP projects result in cost blowouts, lack of quality, timeline extensions all of which are indicators of a failed project environment. This is not to be confused with continuous improvement of an ERP, which occurs some time after go-live is done and the system is in a usable phase. Furthermore, there usually are no qualified ERP project professionals on the company payroll to assist with the project making it entirely the responsibility of few time poor managers, internal IT guys, and the vendor. Vendors do not typically manage change with regard to ERP deployments nor do they have the time to teach internal staff of a client on the subject of ERP.
