“No major software implementation is about the software. It’s about change management.” CIO of Nestle
I’m off today to Ste-Adele in the Laurentions; I’ll be doing a dinner talk for a medical company. They’re in the final stages of a big SAP implementation, and like all large scale IT projects, there have been some bumps along the way. I’m talking to senior management, accounts, controllers about the change underway in the economy, and why companies are building the type of ERP foundation that they are putting in place.
The CIO quote above is perfect — I’ll use it, since so many of these projects are dependent upon communication, change, and motivation.
