What has changed in business life in the information age we are experiencing
and what is the required transformation businesses and organizations
need to pursue? This transformation needs to be well defined and
adapted appropriately to the corporation. A flexible, strong and corporate
business environment needs to be established in order to reach competitiveness
and to build a dynamic business.
As the business life transforms continuously the amount of project-based work
increases significantly in every industry. A new project often means a
new target requiring a task list with new resources, a new organization,
a new mission and a vision. The enterprise needs to build models which
meet today’s requirements and support tomorrow’s competitive environment.
However, these systems work within a relevant methodology. The task is to
develop a prototype, project procedures and so methodologies in order
to execute the projects. Project management covers these specific topics
and investigates continuously what the innovations and improvements are.
Numerous traditional project management methods have been tried and succeeded
in software implementation projects do far. Most software implementation
projects until the introduction of large- scale ERP systems
however have been limited to converting data from legacy systems to
new systems to be implemented. This approach defined the project as
an information technology project and it was mostly owned by IT departments.
Projects failed, new systems were not up to their task, and this
meant additional cost, and insufficient systems, often loss of business,
not to mention employee satisfaction. As a result, these isolated legacy
systems were not efficient enough to meet the requirements of today’s
business and technology environment. They have been replaced by flexible,
integrated, open and user- friendly products.
The challenge of implementing company-wide ERP systems, covering all the
functions of a company, and integrating processes in a customer oriented
xviii
way has improved the project management approaches with the introduction
of of new tools, internet technologies, groupware, custom methodology
databases and application. Resources and systems have been utilized
in a more efficient way and has led to higher overall productivity.
Motivation of employees as well as consultants have been improved, focus
on budget made the executive level sponsor with more enthusiasm.
Over the past few years, in order to prepare for the arrival of the year 2000
(Y2K) many companies were engaged in implementations of standard
business software applications, the enterprise systems particularly such
as ERP, and supply chain management systems. While these software
systems solved the immediate problem of Y2K compliance, they were
typically implemented with an emphasis on speed and the need to fix the
Y2K problems. The scope of data conversion from the legacy to the new
systems was not sufficient. Focus on business processes was required in
order to leverage the capabilities of the software to a maximum. There
was also a very common requirement to re-engineer the business
processes completely for technology-driven business dynamics, such as
the implementation of e-business applications, ERP, B2B, SCM or Data
Warehousing applications.
As a result, many companies have invested in expensive software applications,
without receiving adequate returns on investments (ROI) so far. In fact,
most of such implementations have either failed to return the expected
ROI, or have cost much more money and time to implement than expected.
In addition to acquiring the ability to master the challenges of Y2K, -business
etc., and the following objectives have generally been of primary
importance to companies which are implementing integrated systems:
¦ Reducing maintenance costs for old systems
¦ Replacing “homemade” applications that have proven too difficult and too
expensive to maintain
¦ Reducing redundant data inventories
¦ Standardizing business requirements and related processes for multiple locations
¦ Integrating standard software to accelerate business processes
While the first two items have been accomplished by most companies, optimization
of business processes cannot be automatically achieved byimplexix
menting a software system, even a system as comprehensive as ERP,
e-business or supply chain management.
In today’s business environment, change is constant and stakes are high. Key
decisions have the power to create a tremendous ripple effect not only
throughout the organization. And as soon as a process has been updated
or a new system implemented, a rapid cycle of obsolescence begins. In
an environment like this, there is need for flexibility to change as new opportunities
arise.
More specifically, when making decisions companies need:
¦ To determine which enterprise products are more convenient to implement,
¦ To determine their actual requirements and expectations before the system
selection,
¦ To verify that scheduled process throughput times are being met (and how
consistently those times are met),
¦ To detect points where a potential for time and/or cost saving improvements
exist,
¦ To verify that process capacities correspond accurately to the amount of
work that needs to be accomplished to meet customer demands,
¦ To verify that proposed process costs are being adhered to,
¦ To ascertain whether planning premises were correct,
¦ To ensure that the business processes currently being implemented are resulting
in desired levels of customer satisfaction.
In summary, this book is generally focused on the impacts of new technologies
in today’s ERP project management.
