Assignment 2: Discussion—Enterprise Resource Planning

Reflect on the readings for this module as well as those from previous modules when you consider this module’s discussion question. In your response, take into account the time constraints on modern businesses in terms of time to market and demand for innovation. As an aside, and not as part of the assignment, you may wish to consider how your answers would or would not change if you were considering a craftsmen-type or vertically-integrated business.

Based on the above information and on your reflection of the readings for the course, respond to the following:

  • If continuous improvement is the key to remain competitive, then why do firms codify so many processes into enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems?
  • Does this limit innovation and if so, how can that risk be reduced? If you were an ERP vendor what would be your perspective?

Write your initial response in approximately 300–500 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

By Monday, August 18, 2014, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, August 20, 2014, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.

  • Read all your peers’ postings.

    • Describe the processes you would build into one of your peer’s suggested ERP lifecycles to accelerate innovation.
