The course is intended to show the value of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERPs) in transforming the manner that organizations (government entities, private companies, and other institutions) do business. It will explain the time range and rationale thereof for ERP projects, demystify the associated complexity, resource needs, and risks. Further, participants will learn such risk mitigation strategies (against potential project failure) as strong executive sponsorship, communication, focused stakeholder involvement, and good project management.
The course also expounds on the benefits of timely decision-making, agency (or department) cooperation/collaboration (especially with respect to business process re-engineering), change management, and a clear delineation of roles and responsibilities.
Participants will understand the long-view benefits realization as not all benefits will be realized on the go-live day, noting that transformation is never-ending, and benefits will be realized along the way.
