Change Risk Analysis and Change Strategy Development for Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation
Evans was contracted by a Middle Eastern manufacturing organization to conduct a Change Readiness Assessment and to develop a Change Management Strategy in support of an Oracle ERP implementation.
This extremely complex IT transformational engagement entailed analyzing the associated change risks of implementing an ERP solution across 13 divisions with significantly different business models and levels autonomy.
The Change Readiness Assessment analyzed the risk across three dimensions of cohorts, including the change risks based on the perspectives of 13 divisions, the change risks at different resource levels (i.e., Senior Management, Middle Managers, and Front-Line staff), and the change risk across domain areas (financial management, human resources, purchasing, warehousing and sales & distribution). The output of the Change Readiness Assessment was the development of a Change Risk Register.
