What is Third Stage ERP and Digital Transformation?

There are three distinct stages of an ERP software project or digital transformation.
Unfortunately, most don’t ever reach the third and final stage of success...


First Stage
Project inception. Software is selected and an implementation begins.


Second Stage
The implementation is completed – but usually just for a fraction of the expected technical functionality, scope, and benefits.


Third Stage
A full digital and business transformation is complete. Full technical capabilities are realized, business processes are optimized, and the organization is aligned with the future-state. Most importantly, business benefits and a positive return on investment are realized.
