ERP strategies for steering organizational competence and competitive advantage

Jagan Nathan Vaman

Enterprise Resource Planning – ERP software system, which serves as the backbone of an organization’s information needs, offers unrivaled improvements in business processes and a great opportunity for true connectivity and standardization. Information can be shared internally and externally in real-time; supply and demand can be perfectly coordinated; and business managers can understand every aspect of a company’s operations and performance with the click of the mouse.

ERP in Practice is a practitioner’s manual with concepts, principles, practices and programs that are ‘in practice’. Such ERP practices are presented in the context of making your business processes and ERP systems gain a competitive edge. The book shows that to achieve the business benefits of ERP, companies must treat their implementations as a business initiative, not a technical one. It means putting business executives in charge — not technical managers — who can make the organizational and process changes necessary to achieve benefits. And like all business projects, the responsibility of achieving the set objectives should belong to every manager, not only those involved in the ERP project. This book is packed with actionable strategies, forward thinking solutions, work-plans, tips and tricks to make ERP programs a success.

ERP in Practice will enable CEOs, CIOs, CFOs, business and technical managers, IT and ERP professionals apply the practical ideas, frameworks, models and leading measures in ERP driven environments and achieve a full range of business benefits.
