Five Critical Points for ERP Success

Focus Research has produced a two page quick read five point overview of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation failures. 

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) has been around for over 30 years but it is one of the least understood areas of enterprise software. ERP implementation failures are common but they can be avoided. This brief offers you the five key tips for a successful ERP implementation.

You'll learn:
  • The business value of ERP
  • How ERP can drive operational change
  • How to find an ERP solution that fits your unique business situation

Read the full document here.

  1. ERP is about business value.  It is a business investment, not a technology one.
  2. Business fit.  How will it actually make you more efficient.
  3. Transformation.  Change is the hardest thing to do.  Will the benefits be worth it?
  4. Change Management.  Today success depends more on training and education.
  5. Sponsorship.  ERP is for the Enterprise.  You need consensus at all levels


As the article points out, no short list can describe all the factors required to implement an ERP system successfully.  Consultants can help your implementation, but you are ultimately responsible for its success or failure.
