behind and would not be completed by its projected end time. The executives also have the responsibility to create a plan on how and when the final product will be completed (Neely, 2012). This would be the main goal for all team members to achieve. During this whole process, the executives must be completely involved in everything that happens. Overseeing the project leaders from a distance is not an option when it comes to ERP implementation. Finally, top managers have to actively lead the team to get to the goal, essentially being a part of the team as much as everyone else. This is important because it will allow them to clearly understand the inner-workings of the business. Overall, an Enterprise Resource Planning project cannot be completed without the CEO or CFO being one hundred percent involved in the task. Additionally, any other team members part of the project should be just as committed as well. Without proper planning and focus on the ERP project the risk factor is high. Full support from top management is essential in the success of the ERP project. References Enterprise Resource Planning. (n.d.). Investopedia.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
