10:00 a.m. Keynote—The Critical Requirements of Risk Management and Response Across an ERP Implementation
Whether you are planning for an ERP project or are in the midst of an implementation, consider risk management plan across each stage of the project. There are multiple elements of risk that must be identified, analyzed and planned for, and your project team's ability to know what causes risk and how to address it affects your overall project plan. It also is important to distinguish between project risk and risks to the business, both of which can emerge for a variety of reasons. A structured approach to risk analysis and action--one that addresses the project planning phases as well as business process improvement, ERP selection and implementation support--will reduce exposure and risk along three critical ERP project dimensions: cost, timeline and scope.
