Enterprise resource planning (ERP) support for higher education.
When your administrative system is aligned with your institution's goals, powerful results are possible. However, in time, even the most successful ERP implementations can diverge from their initial goals. CampusWorks helps colleges and universities identify where their administrative systems are underutilized and make decisions about enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and learning management system (LMS) upgrades, process changes, training, and/or new investments that will realign the ERP system with the institution's goals.
As students of William Bridges’ book Managing Transitions, we believe transitions are active and ongoing and not limited to point-in-time activities. In light of this, our goal is to bring organizations together to create a shared understanding of the project’s strategic objectives. All of the work we do requires a broad range of constituents to be engaged. We recognize that the value we bring to our clients is only as good as its ability to be sustained, so we have made it our business to position our clients for sustainable change. We do this by:
Encouraging and maintaining clear, open, frequent communication.
Acknowledging that everyone goes through transitions at their own pace and that pace must be respected if these individuals are not to be left behind.
Creating numerous opportunities for individuals to participate.
Engaging in appreciative inquiry.
Listening, synthesizing, engaging, and listening some more.
The effectiveness of our approach is evidenced by the fact that our ERP, CRM, and LMS system evaluation and selection processes have yielded 100% unanimous decisions to date. We see a growing number of organizations forced to spend millions on independent validation and verification (IV&V) projects because of a weak project foundation. At CampusWorks, we pride ourselves on providing the framework and information critical to ensuring a successful project from the start.
