Overview

This is the first book to present comprehensive strategies and techniques that enable organizations to take charge of their ERP projects to drive success. The author describes how to become less dependent on outside consultants, significantly reduce implementation and support costs, mitigate project risks, and design business solutions that work for your company.

This book also contains hundreds of tips to create internal project ownership, select ERP software, manage service providers, transfer software knowledge, develop the right implementation strategies, establish a realistic schedule and budget, and streamline business processes. It is a guide for making informed decisions during each project phase. The information is applicable to new implementations and system upgrades.

The book has been a No. 1 new release on Amazon.com in the category of Computer Technology / Business Management / Project Management. While written primarily for industry practitioners, it is also used as a textbook for advanced college level courses. It is endorsed by R Ray Wang, Thomas F. Wallace, Jon Reed, and Andy Klee.

"You owe it to your company and yourself to read this book. If you do so, you will sharply increase your odds for success and spend a lot less money. Steve has done the ERP industry a big service." - Tom F. Wallace, early ERP pioneer, author, and Distinguished Fellow at The Ohio State University Center for Operational Excellence.

"There really aren't many "must-read" ERP books in the 30 year (or so) history of ERP, but you can add this book to the must-read list. The book fits nicely into what I call the Center of Excellence movement - the push by ERP customers to gain more value out of their ERP investments and endure less headaches." - Jon Reed, SAP/ERP Market Analyst - www.jonerp.com.

"I love this book." - R. Ray Wang. CEO and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research and a founding partner of the Altimeter Group.

"If the Project Management Institute (PMI) had a certification program in ERP Management, this would be the only textbook needed." - Andy Klee, President, Klee Associates, ERPtips.com (SAP), and JDEtips.com (JD Edwards).

"There are very few ERP books that I would consider a game changer and an eye-opener. Not only will I state this book is a game changer, but I would strongly recommend it to current and future ERP customers. This book is direct and specific regarding risks and recommendations." - G.
