Requirements gathering is an essential part of any project and project management. Understanding fully what a project will deliver is critical to its success. This may sound like common sense, but surprisingly, it’s an area that is often given far too little attention. Companies often make the mistake of thinking that most ERP solutions offer the same functionality. Underestimating how an ERP solution will fit with critical needs within the company and its growth path results in significant overrun costs and project management issues in the long term.
Importantly, companies must prioritize the user requirements (for example, “must have,” “should have,” “could have,” and “would have” – also known as the MoSCoW principle) and align these with the corporate goals. This key task prepares companies for what’s needed for visibility into their company and a clear path to get there.
