Esther Meyer, Grooms Shop: project management and conflict resolution

Here are the top 2 must-have skills for job seekers:

  • 1. Project Management Skills. ERP can be considered a project, or a collection of projects, so project management skills are essential if you’d like a successful ERP usage and implementation. However, only 58% of organizations fully understand the value of project management. Because of this, these skills are often overlooked.
  • 2. Conflict Resolution. Just like any other business process, the usage of ERP isn’t expected to go without complications and of course, conflicts. The skill of conflict resolution should be present to anyone aspiring to be part of the workforce, as this skill is not only going to be useful for ERP, but to the overall business operation.

Norhanie Pangulima, SIA Enterprises: technology specifics and project management

Enterprise Resource Planning is one of the most powerful business tools nowadays. It helps me a lot when it comes to project management and gives me a quick overview of the progress reports of my team in one system.

Organizations spend about 6.5% of their annual revenues on ERP projects.

With that being said, as project managers, we want to make sure that our financial resources are well-spent on every aspect of the business we are handling.

Here are two most important skills to a successful ERP usage:

  • 1. Knowledge on Technology Specifics. ERP solutions‌ allow us to pull reports in one database system. We should hire an ERP consultant who knows the ins and outs of the system we want to run and be able to troubleshoot when problems come. Since it automates processes, the consultant should be diligent in working and managing the ERP system.
  • 2. Project Management Skills. This includes a stable work history, good communication skills and resourcefulness of the jobseeker. To be able to run an ERP, the consultant should also have proven experience in project management so that he/she will be able to apply it through a technology-based ERP system.
