Program Description: 

This course will focus on preparing students to participate in an ERP implementation project. Participants will learn the different approaches ERP companies use to install systems. The ERP implementation process will be broken down and examined from pre-implementation to post-implementation. Special emphasis will be placed on the expectations of the vendor and the customer during the implementation process. Participants will learn how to balance scope, resources, costs, and other constraints, and how to manage schedule and work variation. Participants will also learn about factors for successful implementations, including implementation readiness, communications, training, change management, and post-implementation planning.

Seminar Objectives: 
  • Understand the requirements for effective management of each phase of an ERP selection and implementation project
  • Understand indicators for risk and need for project plan corrections in each project phase
  • Assess the organizational impacts of ERP projects
  • Learn how to leverage ERP technologies to implement current management practices such as performance management and budgeting for outcomes.
