Explain and analyse any difficulties the organisation may have faced in adopting the system.
Our textbook, L. F. Motiwalla and J. Thompson, Enterprise Systems for Management, 2e, 2012, Pearson, briefly describes two real world case studies in each chapter. Students are to select ONE of these case studies for further analysis.
Case studies assess students’ understanding of concepts presented in weekly lectures and tutorials by researching and analysing real life situations. This is an individual assignment.
In this assignment, students must write a 2,500 to 3,000 word report on the following issues depicted in the chosen case study:
1. Describe the subject organisation and explain the problem or opportunity it faced.
2. Describe the nature of the enterprise system that it adopted and the process by which it was selected and implemented.
3. Explain and analyse any difficulties the organisation may have faced in adopting the system, or preparatory steps that were taken to facilitate implementation.
4. Provide an assessment of how successful was the adoption of the enterprise system and any success metrics that were used.
You are required to go well beyond the brief case study described in the textbook and use additional references to support your arguments.
