Sometimes an ERP / CRM implementation overruns budgets, exceeds timelines, or suffers low end-user adoption. This is critical as it could lead to the project’s being considered a failure and your organization’s not achieving the expected benefits. In a worse-case scenario, the project might be write-off as an expenditure rather than an investment.
Though there are plenty of recovery templates available on the Internet, one should bear in mind that there is no step-by-step project management methodology that will ensure success. That is because each company is unique, project scope and requirements vary, team members and challenges are different, and the list goes on. Most of the issues that cause an implementation failure however, are not related to software functionality but to inadequate organizational change management and business process re-engineering. Therefore, companies should seek the advice of an external expert who will assess the current stage of the project and will prepare an individual recovery plan.
