Lumenia Webinar: Change Management for ERP Success - The Human Element
The level of change that will result from an ERP implementation is often underestimated. The term “change management” is not well understood by many ERP practitioners or by most ERP users. There is often a sense that because it covers the softer, people-related issues that arise during ERP implementation projects, change management itself is an ill-defined and woolly concept.
Ursula Browne, Jim Goodison and Edward Abrahamson from Lumenia Consulting will share their views on why it is important to view an ERP implementation as a business change rather than an IT project. They will dispel the view that ERP change management is an ill-defined concept by defining the workstreams and implementation tasks that constitute this critical component of successful ERP projects.
The webinar will take place on Thursday 2nd December at 11AM GMT.
If you are preparing to implement ERP, be sure to register early for this session. We’ll help you prepare for the change that ERP will bring to your organisation by sharing our experiences and providing a platform for questions and discussion on the topic.
