Practical Ways to Improve ERP Project Performance

Optimizing ERP Implementation Success Rate – Attainable or Farfetched! 

Considering, previous implementation methods seemed tedious and elongated, optimizing ERP Implementation could sound farfetched or simply too difficult to implement. 

So, how does an organization maximize the chances that their ERP project delivers the expected value on time and within budget?  

survey by McKinsey indicates that the key to success in ERP projects lies in mastering a methodology that they call “value assurance”. At Quantum Omega, we call it: “The Quantum Culture”.  This implies aligning strategy, stakeholders, and foremost the “people on the floor”, with the project scope, budget, and schedule.  This is an easier said than done formula. However, with the right skill set, all is achievable. The value-assurance approach has a solid track record. One large public sector organization, for example, replaced about 50 legacy IT systems with a standard system for enterprise resource planning over the course of three years-within budget and on schedule.
