To Change or Not to Change: The Decision to Stay on the Green Screen
"Let’s consider a few reasons why you may not want to replace your legacy system, just yet:

They simply don’t break: Like your Grandad’s 1992 Honda or Swiss watch, the thing will pretty much run forever. The technology behind the old IBM mainframes is simple and sturdy, and as long as it is cleaned and maintained it will work. Cloud ERP systems, on the other hand, are only as reliable as your users’ internet connections.
Your business has not changed: We find many scenarios where companies have been doing the same thing for 30 years, and with good reason. Consider a company that manufactures a niche supply part for an industrial manufacturing segment. It may be specialized enough that the barriers and cost of entry is too great for competitors to chase and they have consistent clientele. With no desire to expand, there may be no reason to change what’s working."

How to Estimate ERP and HCM Implementation Time
"Magnitude of change. The bigger the change this project will mean for your company, the longer it will take.
Number of locations. A higher number of locations requires more time to accommodate different operations.
Number of countries. A higher number of countries in scope requires more time to accommodate different cultures.
Complexity of your operations. The more complex and unique your operations, the longer it will take you to implement.
Your internal competencies. The less implementation experience and capabilities your internal team has, the longer the project will likely take."

Avoiding the Digital Abyss: Create a Digital Strategy and Roadmap
"If you are an IT manager and are asked to go find a new ERP system, you will look like a hero if you simply ask “why”. This question will lead well into the next two steps, Technology Strategy and Digital Roadmap. If there is no “why” coming from the business, you face risks of implementing too many or incorrect systems, unclear processes and misused, mistreated and misunderstood data. These issues ultimately result in excessive risk and cost to the business."

Digital Transformation Gone Wrong at PG&E
"Companies will always need to reinvent themselves. This most direct path to success is to involve your key employees, listen to them and learn from them.
Assess risk highly. Whether it’s cyber related or product related, you can’t be profitable if risk is not managed and mitigated.
Your plans for innovation must have a strategy that is consistent with the values of your company. Your ambitions must be matched with an execution strategy.
Pick your partners carefully."

ERP vs. HCM Implementations: Which is the Better Bet?
"HCM may affect a larger population of people than an ERP or CRM implementation, but they can actually deliver more value with less risk. For industries that spend too much on employee retention and morale-related issues each year, better performance management, learning and development, and other human capital capabilities can deliver much higher business benefits than having more efficient accounting or inventory management competencies."

A Perspective on Data Migration in Digital Transformation
"The system integrator is typically only tasked with the main ERP system, therefore isn’t incentivized to ensure downstream systems/reporting are able to properly process the outputs. Many careers have been derailed when a CEO, COO or CFO is unpleasantly surprised by the poor condition of data appearing in their new executive dashboards and reports. Proper data readiness planning can significantly reduce post-project surprises."

Why Digital Disruption is Overrated
"There are plenty of risks when embarking on the journey from your current state of legacy systems to the future state of digital disruption. Yet academics, industry analysts, and other ivory tower types without much relevant hands-on implementation experience fail to mention this important fact.

Note: this is most likely due to the fact that industry analysts are largely supported by the ERP software vendors that have the most to gain from coercing their customers into “digital disruption.” Most buyers of new enterprise technologies with grand visions of technology improvements aren’t aware of the 50% operational disruption rate."

Self-Serve ERP Software Please
"ERP software has evolved to the point where it can allow a self-serve methodology to work efficiently and potentially save companies money. Algorithms help point clients in the right direction towards ready-to-use pathways. When done right, this is a win-win. The client gets to interact/transact in their preferred way, and the company can redeploy its human assets."

Executive Misalignment: The #1 Threat to your ERP Implementation
"Executives are placed in leadership roles because they have “been there” and “done that”. This includes ERP implementation in most cases. If an executive leader has had a bad experience in any way, they will carry bias against technology products or firms, or will bring a heavy load of negative energy. If they have had a good experience, they will assume it will all go without a hitch, without realizing they may have been one of the lucky ones. The worst cases we have seen is where a leader makes a sole decision to purchase a technology platform simply because it worked in their previous organization."

The Biggest ERP Failures of All Time
"It should be noted that the criteria above tend to skew toward larger organizations. Many of us heard about Hershey’s when they couldn’t ship candy after their SAP failure, but many of us do not hear about the local, lesser known companies that didn’t experience failures of this magnitude. But even smaller organizations are not immune to the challenges outlined below."

How to Define Your Digital ERP Strategy in 2020
"
How important is flexibility vs. scale to your business model?
What are you internal IT competencies, and what would you like them to be in the future?
How does this all align with and support your corporate strategy and objectives – or does it?
How big of a change are we really willing to make as part of our transformation?
How much time and money are we willing to invest?
What is our risk tolerance as an organization?
How will organizational change management need to support our answers to these and other questions?"

So much so that I didn’t talk about it much in the months after my departure and during the formation of Third Stage. Yet clients, potential clients, and industry peers understandably had – and in some cases still have – questions about this unusual situation."

Bridging the Gap Between ERP Implementation vs. Business Transformation
"Organizations generally struggle to unlock the value of their ERP implementations or digital transformations to their full potential. For many, it can be hard to deliver much more than mere incremental improvements as part of their transformations.

This problem isn’t necessarily due to lack of software capabilities. Though many are lacking the maturity of past legacy solutions, the current leading ERP and HCM systems such as S/4HANA, Oracle Cloud ERP, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and others contain advanced technologies that many will simply never be able to consume."

There is No Such Thing as “ERP Failure”
"Organizational Change Management (OCM) may seem like an overused term these days – and some may even argue that organizational change management is dead – but companies still overlook the most basic premise of making sure their users understand and use the systems provided for them. If you completed proper training upon your initial implementation, consider the idea of refresher training, updated training for new releases as well as make sure that a training program is in place for new users."

Agile + ERP Implementations: Why It’s a Terrible Idea
"“Quick win” agile transformations allow functional areas or individual locations to get started on something right away, but it doesn’t fix the underlying issue of organizational misalignment, which is the real cause of digital transformation failure. For example, if your finance team decides to implement the “digital core” of SAP S/4HANA’s financial modules, this may or may not align with the needs of the rest of the organization."

Avis vs. Hertz: A Tale of Two Digital Transformations
"In the case of Avis, they used technology to create customer experience innovations that led to things like networked cars that automatically tracked car location, mileage, and maintenance needs. Innovations like this also reduce costs. So rather than forcing technology into their organization as Hertz appeared to, Avis surgically pinpointed where technology could best enhance the customer experience."

Fatal Flaws in the Digital Transformation and ERP Software Industry
"This is the first time in my career where all the major players are releasing relatively new and unproven flagship products. For example, while SAP spent roughly 20 years fine-tuning its R/3 product, S/4HANA has only been on the market for a few years. The number of customers successfully using this new product is relatively small. The kinks haven’t been worked out and the breadth of functionality simply isn’t there yet.

The same is true for Oracle ERP Cloud, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and other top ERP systems. In some cases, the vendors have rewritten the software from scratch (example: Oracle). In other cases, they have pieced together the “best of” older flagship products (example: Microsoft). In most cases, these products are not as ready for prime time as their predecessors were."

Hertz vs. Accenture: How to Avoid Digital Transformation Failure
"Accenture does have a great name and is one of the largest systems integrators on the planet, but putting all of your eggs in one basket is rarely a good idea. If you don’t have the resources or experience to provide internal project management, business process management or organizational change management, bring in outside help. Systems integrators are not a silver bullet to outsource your entire digital transformation to, so simply don’t allow your SI to singularly hold the keys to your success."

Start thinking about the principles of story telling. Start thinking in terms of the visual tools and communication processes you are going to use get the whole company as well as your partner and supplier ecosystem on board."
