Project Management for ERP cannot be understated. It is the essential tool for ensuring a successful launch of a new Enterprise Software system. Understanding the Scope, the Time Frame, the Budget, the People/Resources available, and the goals are all important. Many people use a tool such as MS Project to plan the various stages and tasks to complete.
There is a fundamental difference between planning a project and tracking it. On a project team there are various assignments and tasks that need to be accomplished. MS Project is often cumbersome to track detailed tasks. Especially those that come up in steering committee meetings and even on phone calls.
