Panorama Consulting has done it again. After years of publishing independent thought leadership, expert analyses of ERP implementation trends, and blog post after blog post about our ideas on, experiences with and recommendations for enterprise software implementations and benefits realization, we have again raised the bar. Our latest entry in the ERP canon, so to speak, comes to you from president Eric Kimberling in the form of a new book entitled An Expert’s Guide to ERP Success. We have already uploaded the Introduction and Chapter 1: Strategies for Preparedness and, much in the style of Mark Twain, will serialize the rest of the content for publication throughout the summer. (That’s the last Mark Twain comparison we’ll make though, promise.)

Free to download, print and share, An Expert’s Guide to ERP Success brings the reader through the extraordinary journey of an ERP project — from preparation and planning to vendor and ERP software analysis to organizational change management and benefits realization and much more — all from the eyes of Eric Kimberling, an ERP expert who has “been there and done that” too many times to count. With short, easy-to-read discussions and bullet points about the critical success factors (and failure points) of ERP initiatives, this book should serve as your guide to making ERP software work right for — and with — your individual organization.
