Manage and Govern an Enterprise Application Implementation

Upcoming research.

Many organizations do not have a fundamental understanding of existing internal capabilities, appropriate responsibilities and accountabilities, and the need for effective governance tactics that ensure the sustainable success of software implementations.

Your Challenge

  • Implementation is not an end state. Software implementations can take years, and need to be actively managed and governed to ensure sustainable success.
  • Don’t outsource accountability. You own the project, not the SI. A thorough understanding of your organization’s capabilities and constraints is necessary in order to effectively execute the project.
  • An enterprise software project is an opportunity to transform your organization. Give your organization a competitive advantage through better implementation practices, cost efficiencies, and accurate timelines.
