Great overall review of steps that need to happen and people that need to be involved. Also cheap does not equal best if significant hurdles would be encountered

I got more out of this course than I thought I would going in. Some of the concepts introduced can be applied in other areas outside of purchasing or implementing software.
Very useful webinar.

As an IT Financial leader, I’m a tough critic. Good, broad coverage. Maybe a little about the user acceptance testing (UAT) plans.

Questions on quiz and final exam were not well written. Just an ok course; pretty basic. More real life war stories would have helped.

Good overview of what companies need to do when evaluating a new system. I too have done numerous ERP implementations in the past and the failures have been with companies who filled their evaluation teams with individuals who had spent years with the same company (had no experiences with other companies to leverage). This resulted in misunderstanding of what the ERP system meant by a certain term (such as factoring) vs. what the company employees meant when they said that same term.
