ERP Readiness and System Selection

This course will focus on preparing students to participate in an ERP implementation project. Participants will learn the different approaches ERP companies use to install systems. The ERP implementation process will be broken down and examined from pre-implementation to post-implementation. Special emphasis will be placed on project readiness and critical steps that all governments should be doing BEFORE contracting with a software vendor. Additionally, the class will highlight the expectations of the vendor and the customer during the implementation process. Participants will learn how to set up appropriate project governance, identify goals, define requirements, prepare an RFP, evaluate vendors, and ultimately begin momentum for a successful implementation.
