" The seminar aims at ensuring success of IT Implementation by narrowing the gap between the IT Specialists and the Functional Managers so that the two form a strong cohesive team "
This seminar provides both pre-sales and post-sales benefits to the ERP Implementer.
It helps in lead generation for ERP Vendors.
As a post-sales benefit, this seminar helps cut down the cost, time and stress of ERP Implementation.
Why this Seminar?
While it benefits your company, it benefits your client's company too. Businesses are incurring heavy losses on account of failed implementations - leave alone the opportunity cost and productivity loss due to friction and frustration among senior managers. The seminar helps save cost through faster and more effective automation.
Statistics place implementation failures to anything between 60% and 80%. The cost of ERP implementation is not the software cost alone, it includes hardware cost, training cost, cost of senior people's time and most important the consultant fees, which are very high. The cost of average ERP implementation for a medium to large enterprise with 100 to 250 users is about Rs. 25 million and the total cost of ownership around Rs. 45 million (Source: Aberdeen Group, August 2006). With cost of services having shot up, the cost will be higher.
With average 70% failure rate, the stakes are quite high for your client.
Who Should Participate?
Participants can be CEOs, Entrepreneurs, CXOs, Business Heads, Department Heads, Line Managers, etc. In other words, any managerial staff at any level.
Participants can cut across all functions. Whereas the program is useful for non-IT managers from all functions like Finance, production, materials, procurement, HR, Admin, etc., it is equally useful for IT managers like CIOs, Sr. Mangers, Project Managers, Analysts, implementers, program managers and team leaders.
Whereas it is particularly useful for companies which are at an early stage of implementation or those who are planning to implement it in the near future, it will be useful also for those who have already implemented applications.
