It is usually big and complex, a tool for managing business processes such as accounting, sales, account management, client database management etc. An ERP system, if properly implemented, will take the burden out of the work flow and help staff better manage their customers and their own work load. But, an implementation of the system has to be undertaken in the context of serious business process change. This in turn means change management to deal with all the people, organizational, business method and inevitable dynamic conservatism (i.e. active inertia) issues that have to be tackled to make ERP a success.
