Prepare your organization for system implementation success
Every company fully intends for their system implementation to be a success. In spite of good intentions, many end up taking far too much time to complete, running way over budget or ultimately failing.
Intent is not the critical factor to success. Thoughtful, detailed and methodical preparation paves the way for success. You need to consider everything from product knowledge and project management; principles like open and honest communication; and organizational process mapping and design.
During this session you will hear about proven tools and ideas to hedge your bets and dramatically increase the likelihood of a successful system implementation. Specific topics and tips covered include:
- Putting people first, both the project team and end users, and investing in proper training and resources
- Documenting the project scope and deliverables up front
- Identifying important milestones and decisions prior to the start
- Organizational change management
Attendees will benefit from the practical and strategic experience of Dennis Shinaberry, Vice President of Consulting and Services Delivery at Applexus. Over the past 25 years, Dennis has led teams and personally managed 30 successful systems implementation projects. These range from small-scale start-ups to enterprise-wide systems for Fortune 500 companies in wholesale, retail and consumer product companies. He has formulated an approach that works. And you can, too.
Whether you need to implement SAP, CRM, MRP, HR or even a point solution for reporting, you don’t want to miss this incredibly valuable session.
