Shaun Syvertson, President of ConvergentIS joins us to chat about achieving successful ERP implementations. What technologies are at the forefront of ERP implementations? Are ERP rollouts more difficult in larger companies? Does private versus public make it even harder? What role do change management and shifting behaviours have when it comes to adoption and utilization? How do organizational policies help and hinder ERP implementations? What are some quick solutions for companies? Shaun says to keep it simple by distilling your policies into a series of easy to follow, wizard-type questions. This can be done by using software that creates a guided process and lets you configure your business language and policy before deploying it to large groups of employees. You’re essentially embedding the processes into the system workflow for the ERP.
Shaun shares some great insights on the role the procurement team has to hold the organization accountable and making sure it’s not asking for something it’s not ready for. Procurement teams play a critical role by asking questions including, “Is the organization ready? Have we done our homework to make sure we know what we’re looking for?”
