No Doubt Successful

There is No Doubt that implementation will be successful when senior managers and business unit managers collaborate to set their #1 Clear Objective of consistently hitting their targets for KPIs and earnings, efficiently transacting their enterprise’s E-Commerce business, efficiently satisfy requirements for GAAP Financial Statements and commit to be the Project Management Office (PMO) responsible for managing their successful implementation of their enterprise’s System to achieve their #1 Clear Objective.

Least Cost Implementation

When the PMO is an enterprise’s senior managers and business unit managers, then the PMO can plan a least cost implementation.  Least cost implementations start with an enterprise’s System architected and configured to demonstrate achieving their #1 Clear Objective and satisfying their enterprise’s requirements.

The 1st task in a least cost implementation is to load and/or convert an enterprise’s data to test and validate the configurations and to start mastering the learning curves required to use, maintain, configure and continually improve an enterprise’s System to achieve their #1 Clear Objective and to satisfy an enterprise’s requirements.
