Project management is not about creating stacks of documents. The most important aim is to put into practice specific patterns of work such as systematic project team meetings. IT.integro’s experience shows that only if meetings are held, team members are able to reach agreement as well as decide on the assignment of tasks and execute them faster, which in turn makes implementation more effective.
IT.integro delivers international projects as well. This enables us to gain experience that we can use for local companies. What we try to pass to our customers, is that for each task it is necessary to define its:
- competent implementation team.
It is difficult to enforce persistence from employees that are not used to such an approach. Especially when unscheduled events happen (i.e. delays, lack of experience, incidents). The project management theory explains what should be done in such situations. However, again persistence is a prerequisite.
This problem can be solved by gaining theoretical knowledge and practical experience as well as implementing the project approach in companies. The effects are useful not only for the implementation of an ERP system. Needless to say that each company wants to develop, open its new branches and launch new products… It will be easier to achieve such goals with staff used to a project approach. The implementation of an ERP system is a good opportunity to introduce such practices into the organization permanently.
