Our recent blog posts have emphasized the importance of aligning ERP software with overall business strategy and defining to-be business processes as part of a successful ERP project. An informal survey from our website further confirms the importance of these areas.  At the time of this blog entry, 33% indicate that a lack of strategic direction is their company’s biggest problem. In a not-too-distant second place ranking, 24% of respondents indicate that the biggest problem is that their company operates in silos.

Neither of these challenges are going to make lives easier for executives at companies implementing ERP software. No matter how well you may implement ERP, it is not going to fix flawed strategic or core operational thinking.

To overcome these challenges, organizations first need to define a clear strategic direction, develop standardized global processes, and implement effective organizational change management to change the silo mind-set.
