Is your organization considering investing in an integrated business system solution? Research shows that more than 75% of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) projects fail, underscoring the need for proper planning. This one-day symposium is an immersion in all things ERP, the management tool that integrates information across all operational areas—such as finance, HR, procurement, and contracts management—into a single system. You will hear directly from InsideNGO members on the pros and cons of their own ERP choices, how they overcame specific challenges, and how change management is integral to ERP success.

Who Should Attend

This event is a “must-attend” for those tasked with assessing organizational readiness, including:

  • Staff involved in selecting and implementing an ERP system
  • Senior leaders and others in executive management positions

Topics to be Discussed 

Our panel of technical experts will lead discussions on:

  • How to assess your readiness and prepare for an ERP project
  • Key steps in selecting and purchasing a system
  • Best practices in implementation and staff training
  • Budgeting and cost allocations
