ERP II IMPLEMENTATION – Delivering Benefits Realisation


Authors: Andrew Norton, Yvette Coulson-Thomas, Oleg Konovalov, and Colin Coulson-Thomas

ISBN 978-1-872980-21-8

This book presents a critical pathway to success for ERP II implementation. It outlines the CSF necessary to deliver a successful implementation in the form of clearly defined critical implementation pathway steps.

The CSF Phasing Model has been introduced as a tool to allocate resource investments into the appropriate position within the implementation lifecycle. As a result, the CSF play a more effective role in the delivery of benefits realisation.

In relation to delivering benefits realisation, the book looks at the nature of change management, how this change is managed and its association with partnership trust.

In outlining CSF required during the four stages of the implementation lifecycle, the book addresses the following issues: Planning for benefits realisation, delivering the system benefits, reviewing the system benefits and exploiting the system benefits.

It is equally important to know where not to invest valuable resources and this book highlights areas of resource investments deemed not to be critical for delivering benefits realisation from ERP II.

Insightful feedback from consultant practitioners provides a fascinating glimpse into the perspectives of both client and supplier organisations involved in ERP II implementation.

This book will help towards the delivery of benefits realisation from ERP II implementations.

Winning Companies; Winning People

In many sectors competing companies offer similar products and services, and use the same or equivalent technologies, processes and systems. They recruit similar people, employ the services of the same or similar consultants, and they invariably fall for the same management fashions and fads. Yet people in some companies are so much more effective than others who undertake similar tasks in equivalent circumstances. Why is this? What do the high performers do differently?

The Winning Companies: Winning People research programme examines how peopleoperate in important areas such as building relationships, bidding, pricing, purchasing and creating and exploiting know-how. Over 4,000 organisations have participated in the investigation led by Prof. Coulson-Thomas. Because most success factors are attitudinal and behavioural, investigating teams can distinguish the approaches of high performers or winners from the practices of low achieving losers. The results are summarised for the first time in this 236 page book which provides a compendium of the differing approaches of winners and losers for those with ambitions to build successful businesses and achieve their full potential.
