In technology investment, many organisations follow the steps of business case approval and subsequently a choppy implementation journey ; only to realise that budgets have been overspent and the people are not on board.
Are there any smart moves to prevent this?
Perhaps it’s a matter of thinking ahead and investing in your people (and not just the systems!) way ahead. And it is about crafting a governance structure in advance and putting it in place in the early stages of the technology investment.
How about a COE? Or a Finance Standards Council?
Join us in a passionate discussion together with Phillipa Cummine , Change Manager and ERP Goverance & Controls, B&Q (United Kingdom) in discussing the required governance and what are the “smart moves” in realising the investment within ERP implementation in the upcoming AGOS FINANCE SUMMIT 2019 on the 9th and 10th April.
