much written information circulates thus slowing W r i t i n g

In the pdf subject they are several questions to answer, I only ask you to reply this question:

  • What are your recommendations and changes to implement in the short or medium term to provide with a high success level this project launch?

Here is an example on how to reply, for the first question: Who is or who are the one(s) asking for this IT project introduction?

At the Head Office, the Director of Manufacturing and the Sales Director have raised the problem of the bottom-up flow of information within the company.

//

The Financial Director raised the problem of the costs that a distributed IT would represent. He is in favor of a “cloud computing solution”.

//

Directors at local level are opposed to the cloud computing idea.

//

The majority of the manufacturing, accounts and human resources heads stick stubbornly to their procrastinations. Computerization appears useful, but shouldn’t it, they say, be carried out in stages. The production manager thinks an ERP solution under the form of a Cloud/SaaS such as Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, SAP, and Cegid propose would be adapted. The sales Director is inclined overtime to a “CRM” solution to deploy its commercial activity. But should not this be delayed say some participants. Should not there be cultural resistances? Because implementing an ERP “pulls” the organization which has to adapt to new functionalities and therefore use new working methods. The CEO is in favor of a massive introduction of data processing at all local levels. He thinks this would reduce bureaucratic red tape (too much written information circulates thus slowing down its transmission). According to him, such an operation would only be beneficial if the whole staff is concerned. Even the warehousemen should be concerned by this change: they could enter information regarding the arrival of raw materials, thus providing up-to-date information permanently on the quantity of products to be processed at each production unit. The CEO is in favor of data processing training for its entire staff rather than just for the accounts department. He considers that to do the latter would curb the potential of this new technology.
