Your business depends on your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Changes to your ERP system can significantly impact your technology and processes, but the greatest impact is often on your people. Adapting to ERP system changes can be difficult for employees, as it requires individuals to change the way they do their jobs. That’s why a well-planned Organizational Change Management (OCM) strategy is crucial to ensuring ERP project success.
Keep your people and ERP project on track with these OCM best practices:
The greatest overall contributor to project success is active and visible sponsorship, as discovered every year by Prosci’s benchmarking research on change management.1
According to Prosci’s 2016 benchmarking report, projects with excellent change management are six times more likely to meet objectives than those with poor change management.2
To ensure your ERP project is set up for success, AXIA has developed an OCM for ERP Success Toolkit as part of our OCM solution offerings. This toolkit has the specific methods, deliverables and best practices needed for managing change while implementing ERP. It covers the entire program – from blueprint, through CRP, UAT and implementation – taking the guesswork out of how to best integrate OCM into your ERP program. In addition, the flexible OCM for ERP Success Toolkit fills in the gaps present in many technology-focused ERP methodologies.
