Implementing ERP The Right Way

With all the humdrum about ERP systems, you would be forgiven for thinking that organizations – big and small – know how to implement it right. Turns out, a majority of them don’t! Consider the nightmare Nike went through after it’s ERP implementation. Philip Knight, Nike’s Chairman and CEO, blamed the “complications arising from the impact of implementing our new demand-and-supply planning systems and processes” for the shortages of some products and excess amounts of others as well as late deliveries. How’s that for a mouthful?

Implementation is the challenge. Peruse this presentation – another one from Dr. Lakshmi Mohan’s class – on how to implement ERP the right way.
