Implementing Large Enterprise Solutions as a Participatory Process – Interview with Stefanie Supper
Implementing large, integrated enterprise solutions frequently involves skyrocketing costs and missed rollout deadlines. Companies scramble to apply one-size-fits-all products, leaving the majority of users dissatisfied with a tool they have had no initial involvement in. Stefanie Supper of Supper & Supper GmbH explains how major implementations can be designed as an integrative process to ensure the success of the project. Even with PPM solutions such as Planisware, errors of judgement can occur due to a lack of change management. As Supper & Supper and Planisware have maintained a long-standing cooperation, with large implementation projects involving company-wide project portfolio management these risk factors can be sidestepped elegantly.
