Common ERP Myths

There are a lot of myths that surround the concept, infrastructure, implementation and practice of enterprise resource planning. Very often people are not willing to adopt ERP because of these wrong notions. In this section we will see some of the most common myths about ERP and will try to demystify them.

ERP is the sole responsibility of the management

Making an ERP system work is the responsibility of all the employees. It involves virtually every department and every person within the company. The company management is not responsible for the day-to-day operation of the ERP system. Their main job is to create an organizational environment in which ERP can thrive - give ERP the full backing of the management. They should also be involved in the development of ERP policies, usage guidelines, allocation of budget, package selection and appointment of competent professionals to implement and manage the ERP system. Only when the ERP team has the full backing and support of the management, they will be able to implement the system smoothly.

The management should monitor the implementation and operation of the system, review the progress and status periodically and should take necessary corrective action, if required. The management should also ensure that the ERP implementation team gets the support and co-operation of all the departments, But, thinking that the ERP system will succeed just because the management is fully committed to its implementation and operation is one of the biggest mistakes that an organization can make. In fact, it is the employees - the day-to-day users of the system - who will decide the fate of the ERP system. If the employees are not fully appraised, trained, satisfied and are not happy with the system and are not using it properly, then the ERP system will be a failure.
