To successfully implement enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, government organizations must incorporate targeted organizational change management activities into their project strategy, according to the Organizational Change Management in Public Sector ERP Implementations white paper released today by Panorama Government Solutions, an independent ERP consulting firm in Denver. The paper posits that public sector agencies should focus on determining risk exposure and developing mitigation tactics for the specific change management challenges that they face.
“Through our work with government agencies as well as our independent research into ERP failures, Panorama has seen time and again the profoundly negative effects that inadequate organizational change management can have on ERP implementations,” said Z. Vanessa Giacoman, Managing Member of Panorama Government Solutions. “There is no way around it: government agencies must overcome the eight key organizational change management challenges I discuss in the white paper to successfully implement any large-scale program or system.”
The white paper also details the five pillars that Panorama’s own PERFECT Change™ organizational change management methodology is built upon, including communication and organizational alignment, contextual training and benefits realization frameworks.
To offer further insight into the role of organizational change management in public sector ERP implementations, Giacoman will present a free webinar on Thursday, September 26 at 1 p.m. EST.
