The discussion on the low success rate of ERP/ ERM/ SAP implementation resonated with me. There is an expectation that information technologies will increase the efficiency of the organization, however the rigidity of ERP systems 1) increase the hierarchy of the organization; 2) reduce the ability to make mistakes, learn and innovate; 3) the orgs mold to fit the ERP system and not the system to fit the organization, leading also to cultural change.
