Chill is temporary, Build is forever

Published / by Nimesh

Goal can be anything- a new product, service, learning, diet & fitness routine or as simple as playing with kid’s Lego blocks…

Chill is like honeymoon period, where everything seems good…

Build is where the real life is, the actual grind is…where we work together, we fight and we conclude together…

We challenge the limits…because we are focused on process & outcome and not merely momentary happiness… a successful build is happiness forever as it brings best results, greater bonding and sense of achievement…

Build is where we – Share ideas, discuss, plan it, break it down SMART’ly*, work on it, check it, launch alpha/beta, get initial level feedback & suggestions, make necessary changes, test, release, feedback, improvise, milestone success…the cycle goes on…

In the process of building, we need to work on each other’s strength and weaknesses…we always need to keep our eyes and ears open, and be ready for feedback and change… we should focus on minimising the negative feedback by weighing it with open mind and then plan for working on it…the last part is always challenging and is most difficult. But that’s where the key to success lies – not taking it personally and deciding on what criticism to ignore…

SMART is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic & TimeBound

The goal has to be SMART, otherwise there will be no outcome…

Goal has to be specific, so write it down, break it to the smallest measurable units. We cannot control what we cannot measure… Goals has to be achievable, realistic and time-bound.

Vague goals result in bad paths and wasted time & efforts, as the process can’t be ongoing forever…

AND we need a team to start with, in order to achieve all of the above…

If you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together.

Chill is temporary, Build is forever

ERP Implementation

Published / by Nimesh

ERP implementation is the process of examining current organizational practices, strategic planning, streamlining operating procedures, installing and testing software, cleansing and migrating data, managing change, training users, going live and maintaining support.

ERP implementation involves people as well as technology. Accordingly, it may face people-related challenges, such as resistance to change, as well as technical obstacles.

Though the technical obstacles can be managed with adequate planning.
But, the most crucial variable in the ERP success formula is people and their mindset issues.
This is the most difficult type of issue to resolve and is one of the main reasons for ERP implementation failures. It’s easy to forget that the success of the implementation of a software system depends mainly upon the users.
The system itself is a non-living and logical entity that follows logical steps and processes as it has been programmed to, but the users of the system are humans who were used to processes being one way and will more than likely find it hard to switch to a new way of doing things, especially if the benefits of adopting new methods are not immediately obvious.

So, what needs to be done to make the ERP rollout successful?
People’s inclusion

How?
Inform all employees of news and milestones as the project progresses
Establish reliable feedback channels for employees
Stimulate employees to generate new ideas and provide suggestions
Organize interesting training sessions
Celebrate the best user achievements as they occur
Change management and Continuous improvement.
