The selection of an ERP software packages is still done in a similar way as thirty years ago. Based on a list of requirements and after some demonstrations of the software, a choice is made out of several products. The contract between the vendor and the company for buying an ERP system is usually closed with the management of the company. However, during the implementation many discussion could arise form users, complying with the agreed ERP features. In many cases this phenomenon leads to undesired behaviour, such as development of unforseen customizations and forced changes of organization processes. Budgets and timing are exceeded and the users are not satisfied.
An implementation project of an ERP system is always a change management project. It has many consequences for the way of working of a lot of employees in the company. That means that the interests of employees and the interests of the company must be aligned.The Leanwise approach assumes that the functional specification for an ERP software are results of a specific organization construction that determines the performance of that organization. That’s why it proposes that an ERP contract between a company and a vendor should be based on a construction model, that comprises a process model, an interaction model between the actors in the company and an object model of the company world. Those models provide more transparency about the mapping of the ERP solution on the organization for every contract party. Besides that, it gives everybody much more information about the applicability of the software for the company and the possible gaps that have to be solved. Therefore risks can be significantly reduced within the project. Although models are specific for particular companies, within the Leanwise ERP implementation Approach, several models for specific verticals are already developed. Using an available model during the presales process improves the speed and the quality of the decision.
