The EstesGroup Model for Repeatable Success
Project Planning & Generation
The foundation of every successful project is a comprehensive and well-documented plan. Your EstesGroup ERP project manager / consultant understands this and will work with your organization to generate a clear plan for the project that provides all stakeholders with a clearly documented scope of work, plan for implementation, and strategy for deploying the people and technology required for success.
EstesGroup will provide your business with custom ERP project templates that act as the framework to quickly start new projects and establish a documented structure and process for the concept, planning, implementation and closeout for your project.
Successful ERP project management often hinges on setting a fixed budget and staying true to it. Estimating and controlling the budgeted resources of an ERP project can be one of the most troublesome components of a project. All involved need to understand the required monetary resources and personnel needed across departments to have an accurate picture of the projects’ Budgeted Cost of Work Scheduled (BCWS) and Budgeted Cost of Work Performed (BCWP), along with the Estimated Cost at Completion (EAC).
External Integration Planning
Coordinating the various elements of an ERP project often requires the integration of external systems and technologies, going well outside of the predicted scope of implementing an ERP. Integration of external supply chains and other elements typically requires a radical change in internal practices so that your company socializes and promotes the integration at all levels of your organizational structure, and this typically starts with improving collaborative thinking.
Organizational Change Management
ERP project management is more than new technology and processes – it’s also about the people. Organizational change management (OCM) is a framework for addressing the human side of change management. EstesGroup’s experts will provide a systematic approach for deploying new business processes, cultural changes, and changes within the organizational structure to help your team embrace new skills or behaviors.
Best Practice Implementation
Even the most perfectly planned of ERP projects can come undone without proper implementation. Your EstesGroup ERP project manager will ensure best practices for quality control and risk management are used across the lifecycle of your project from conception to completion. Adhering to and socializing best practices across your organization and project allows for a clear definition of “completeness” of deliverables, on-time completion and parity with set budgets.
