Face it. Digital Transformation is not easy. With proper strategy and leadership, ERP projects can, and do, succeed. ERP is just one of many Digital Transformation initiatives that businesses undertake. Unfortunately, these 3 letters bring concern and risk due to the frequent failures in these projects – as well as the trail of dysfunction left behind from poorly executed projects. Our session leader, Bob Green, leads a team of objective, product-agnostic Digital Transformation professionals at SingerLewak’s Business Informatics practice. They work in this space to help ensure proper project strategy and execution from all players involved – as well as to remediate implementations that have gone awry. In this session, Bob will share interactively actual recommendations and practices that you, as the financial leader, can deploy and govern in your organization to make Digital Transformation (ERP, and otherwise) a successful experience.
Learning Objectives:

  • Define what Digital Transformation is, and where ERP (and FPA, CRM, and others) fit in this paradigm
  • Explore scenarios that give rise to require businesses to upgrade their ERP and other software
  • Learn the key success factors to ERP and other Digital Transformation projects – and how you can tackle them. Time permitting, we’ll investigate several of these in “how to” discussions.Take away: a self-assessment to determine your business’ readiness for tackling an ERP or other Digital Transformation project.
