Knowning the real reason for the failure of ERP projects and High-Risk ERP Implementation Strategy, enterprises and governments are now one step away from ERP implementations with zero failure. That is: avoding repeating the same mistake others made.
This article reveals zero-failure ERP implementation strategy.
The zero-failure ERP software selection steps are as follows:
After top-notch ERP is selected, implement the project. The implementation process overturns the outdated high-risk strategy and adopts the zero-failure strategy - all ERP project tasks are delivered to the enterprise's IT staff and even end users to execute and complete.
The two important tasks of zero-failure ERP implementation are as follows:
The specific steps are as follows:
This consultant is responsible for training enterprise IT staff and completing the training in a short time.
The training goal is: to enable the enterprise IT staff to develop information application software that meets the needs of their business on top of the ERP platform, that is, the enterprise IT staff tailors the information application software system that is 100% in line with their business processes.
Why hire only one consultant, not a hundred-member consultants team? The answer is: One consultant is enough.
Large consultants army is useless. The reason is simple - In order to reduce consultant fees, corporate IT staff will participate in every training course offered by one consultant, rather than repeating the same training multiple times. In other words, each enterprise IT staff can only be trained by one consultant at a time. Therefore, companies need to hire only one consultant.
Why is it short term? Exactly how short is it? The answer is: The time required for training depends on the professionalism of the enterprise IT staff. For most large companies that already have IT departments, training can be completed in less than a week.
During the training process, the enterprise IT staff will simultaneously evaluate the compatibility of the top-notch ERP platform, decide whether or not to continue the ERP project and whether or not to purchase the ERP platform. If enterprise IT staff makes a negative decision, the project ends immediately at this stage.
At this stage, the enterprise IT staff begins to add or modify the information application software system that meets the needs of the enterprise on the top-notch ERP platform. At the same time, end-user representatives should thoroughly try out the information application software system. End-user representatives in each department as well as IT staff thoroughly evaluates the compatibility of the top-notch ERP platform, decide whether or not to continue the ERP project and whether or not to purchase the ERP platform. If enterprise IT staff or end-user representatives makes a negative decision, the project ends immediately at this stage.
After entering this stage, enterprise IT staff has decided to continue the project. The enterprise has full power to decide how much human resources to invest in, and the speed of, the new application system development.
IT personnel complete the development of new application system at this stage, and thoroughly test the new application system with end-user representatives.
After entering this stage, enterprise IT staff has completed the development of the new system. The enterprise arranges the time to launch the new system by itself, and schedules the time to decommission the old system.
After bringing the new system live, the enterprise can buy this top-notch ERP platform with full confidence. The project is completed.
Enterprise IT staff can discover the fact that the ERP software is unsuitable at the first or second stage of the zero-failure ERP implementation strategy, and terminate the project without purchasing the ERP software.
End users can discover the fact that the ERP software is unsuitable at the first or second stage of the zero-failure ERP implementation strategy and terminate the project. Otherwise, once the project enters phase 3, end users will fully support the project and accept the software.
There is no such risk because enterprises need to purchase top-notch ERP platforms only after the project succeeds.
The zero-failure ERP implementation strategy employs only one consultant for short-term training. The biggest loss for a business is confined to pocket money.
Customizing or expanding applications on top-notch ERP platform requires only two professional skills - PostgreSQL and fundamental accounting. The enterprise IT staff is absolutely competent.
In order to shorten the development time of the new system, the enterprise can hire more IT personnel to join the project at any time, and the enterprise has full control of the implementation.
The people who best know the enterprise's operating procedure in the world are enterprise's employees. The zero-failure ERP implementation strategy is performed by enterprise employees. All stakeholders having been communicating for years with each other are all colleagues. There is no need to communicate with any outsiders.
Zero-failure ERP implementation strategy does not require enterprises to change any core operating habits.
There is no such risk because the top-notch ERP platform consumes low energy and runs at high speed.
Adopting the zero-failure ERP implementation strategy, the new system was developed by enterprise IT staff. System transfer is not needed.
Adopting the zero-failure ERP implementation strategy, it is enterprise IT staff who develops the application system. The IT staff absolutely has the ability to maintain the system they develop.
Since the IT staff of an enterprise has the ability to develop and complete new system, it is absolutely capable of switching old system to new one that are relatively easy to complete.
If the project is abandoned in the second stage of the zero-failure ERP implementation strategy, the IT manpower lost to the project will be minimal.
In order to reduce new system development time, enterprises can choose to hire more IT personnel or to arrange existing IT personnel for new system development.
Information system development technology threshold determines the feasibility of citizen developer strategy. The top-level ERP platform has low skill requirements, and it allows end users to participate in application software development.
