Your task is to identify what factors help achieve successful
ERP implementation.Â In order to generate a report and to
clarify issues with ERP implementation, you need to think about
â€¢Critical success factors for ERP implementation at SMEs and large organisations.
â€¢Importance of feasibility studies for adoption of ERP systems.
â€¢Possible issues/challenges (budgets, infrastructure, skills, etc.) with ERP implementation.
â€¢Success stories, benefits achieved through ERP implementation.
â€¢Failures and consequences because of failures.
â€¢Strategies for successful implementation.
Once you have examined the academic literature you may need to consider what is already known about implementation of ERP systems in order to identify any issues or risks pertinent to the SMEs (and large organisations) context.
For this assignment, you are required to use academic literature to support and illustrate your report.Â It is important that you look at how issues and potential problems inter-relate and explain the linkages in order to present the risks.Â Â It is up to you to explain and justify why the risks you identify may be a problem in the new implementation.Â It is also important to situate them in terms of the literature on causes of Enterprise Systems failure.Â Use this literature to develop your recommendations for strategies or actions that can avoid or mitigate the risks.Â Be aware that it may not be possible to avoid or mitigate all risks.
Your audience are non-technical. However, you can assume your readers are intelligent people who understand business arguments.Â Remember that there is no single right answer that will address all risks and recommendations.Â It is your choice to nominate which of the risks you believe are the most critical and up to you to select the most appropriate mitigation strategies for your recommendations.Â You will be assessed on your ability to persuade the reader, so it is essential you develop factual and logical arguments in your risk and recommendation justifications.
Your report should include Executive summary, Introduction, Discussion, Conclusion and recommendations.
You must use trade and academic literature to inform and support your report.Â A minimum of 10 references are required, at least 5 of which must be from academic sources (journal, conference or edited book chapter papers). Failure to include these will result in a deduction of marks. A high achieving student will probably have between 15 and 20 references.
