All projects are constrained by four factors: time, costs, quality and scope. For any project to be successful, these four constraints must be in equilibrium. If any constraint is out of balance, the project is headed for disaster.
Therefore, efficient and effective project management is a critical component of any enterprise transformation project – and the future success of the global enterprise. Without strong project management, control, and visibility – these initiatives often fail to deliver their desired results.
Unfortunately, we've found that too many enterprise transformation projects fail due to frequent scope changes, a lack of skilled resources, or unrealistic estimates and expectations. These projects do not deliver the expected results, have significant cost and schedule overruns, or are put on hold / cancelled completely.
Setting a solid project management foundation can enable enterprises to define, prioritize, understand, and measure project performance and any impact on the organization. When done correctly, Project Management helps companies execute and implement their projects on-time, on-budget, and on-spec.

Without understanding the impacts to the people that make up an organization when introducing change, it can be difficult to achieve success in any activity that requires change.
When a company is considering replacing their existing or acquiring a new ERP system there is part of the entire process that sometimes is left out or left to chance.
Unfortunately, we find that while many companies have made investments in enterprise transformation projects - few have actually achieved the business results they targeted.
Many companies put off selecting a new ERP system because it’s a complicated and expensive undertaking. When you make the right choices, though, the process becomes less daunting and even welcome.
Becoming a lean organization is not a single step or even a finite undertaking such as a typical project. Adopting lean must be a journey that the entire organization takes as a unit.
Take a look at how Microsoft Dynamics AX, SAP Business One, SAP Business ByDesign and SAP All-in-One fare when it comes to the criteria most commonly used as part of the selection process of top-performing companies.
To deliver optimum customer satisfaction, operational performance, and business success – organizations must be able to provide products and efficiently capture, access, and share operations data in the right way with the right entities.
