Description: 

ERP system projects are some of the most dreaded in local governments. Many local governments that relied on decades-old systems for critical financial and payroll functions are now facing the reality that a replacement is needed. Anyone that has been through one can tell you that ERP replacement projects are complex, tough, and organizationally challenging. Sound project management techniques, such as quality assurance and active management of your vendor, are pathways to success on your ERP project. But it also takes good leadership, a commitment to best practices, and focused work efforts to yield long-term returns on investment. Hear from ERP implementation veterans as they reflect on their ERP projects, share lessons learned, and discuss how to avoid the many pitfalls that have made ERPs so infamous over the years.
