A Manager's Guide to Business Systems Implementations

Imple­ment­ing new IT busi­ness sys­tems (or per­form­ing major upgrades to exist­ing ones) is an inher­ent­ly high-risk process. As a senior man­ag­er — you may need to ensure the suc­cess of a sys­tem project ini­tia­tive — but you don’t need to be a sys­tems spe­cial­ist to do so effec­tive­ly. Designed from a busi­ness per­spec­tive, this course will help you to rec­og­nize spe­cif­ic risks to in-house devel­oped, con­tract­ed, or cloud based solu­tions; under­stand the obscure lan­guage in project progress reports; and iden­ti­fy the warn­ing signs of poten­tial­ly impend­ing fail­ure for your system.
