More About This Episide

There is one best ERP solution for each and every unique organization. But what does that really mean?  And, the organization needs to take the time and effort to find that “one best fit” without making assumptions. But How? 

In fact, research suggests that ERP systems selection, implementation methodology, and partner selection are critical for a successful ERP organizational change project. What matters and what really makes for an organization’s success is being mindful of how critical the triad (people, process, and technology) is and hence the true differentiators that ERP solutions and vendors bring to the table.

So let’s learn more with our guest as we discuss potential people, process, and technology differentiators including the value placed of organizational learning, culture, and trust.
