Act Decisively to Fix a Failing ERP Solution
For organisations when there is stakeholder agreement the enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution has failed to meet business needs, act decisively to turn failure into success. Management must also be proactive, and act when the implementation cost has been fully amortised and deemed past its use-by date, or when vendors providing SaaS ERP solutions have not met their contractual and service delivery obligations. In all situations, it is important to be proactive and tell executive management what is being done about it.
