  2. 2.  Adopting a new technology in an enterprise is never easy, and it can be time and effort consuming.  Even after a lengthy due diligence, selection, and price negotiation process, ERP (product) implementations can fail for various reasons.  This presentation will share some of the most common challenges that organizations can face when adopting or migrating to a new product.

  3. 3.  Resistance – people generally don’t like to change the way they do things. Sometimes they have had bad experiences with other products.  Process – employees may not fully understand how the new product can transform their existing business processes.  Experience – if an employee has had a lot of experience with the previous product he/she may not believe in the advantages of the new one, even if its better. © Copyright 2014 Valuehire, All Rights Reserved.
  4. 4.  Expectations – communication between the vendor, users, and management needs to be clear on what is being done, by whom, and when.  Analysis – costs vs. benefits analysis for all stakeholders is critical, otherwise one person’s gain might be another person’s pain.  Training – inadequate training will delay the implementation and increase opposition. © Copyright 2014 Valuehire, All Rights Reserved.
  5. 5.  Usability – the product is not user friendly, i.e. the UI (user interface) may be great but the UX (user experience) may not be, or vice versa.  Effort – it takes too long to install, setup, and get the new product running across the organization.  Involvement – users need to be involved from Day 1, otherwise they are less likely to accept or adopt the product later. © Copyright 2014 Valuehire, All Rights Reserved.
  6. 6.  Transparency – ERP products generally bring more transparency into what’s going on in the organization, even though they delivery benefits via productivity, time, and cost savings.  Age – older users sometimes find it hard to change their technical environments.  Support – the vendor is not able to support the changing needs of the client organization in a timely manner. © Copyright 2014 Valuehire, All Rights Reserved.
