Training in ERP for everyone

Inadequate training in ERP can lead to system failure

eresource Academy's training on ERP training is important as the system itself and all users of the ERP system should be trained properly in using the system to its fullest. ERP training to all employees of a company will not be the same. Training requirement and options may vary with different groups of people in the company.

Managers need more focus on the decision-making and analysis features of the system, while the clerical staff need more focus on how to perform their jobs. But all the users must be trained in the ERP basics, overview of the system and its working, how an action by an employee triggers a host of events through the organization, how automation will help, what processes are changed and so on.

Decision makers in an organization need to have sufficient understanding of what is involved in an implementation project so that they appreciate the potential problems and are able to give the commitment and support that is required for their employees.

It is important to educate everyone in a company about the working of an ERP system so that they understand what is going to be achieved with the new system. Additional education should include total quality management and change management strategies. Also the training sessions should be used to gain acceptance for the ERP systems by dispelling the myths about ERP. When the employees do not understand what the new system is and what it is supposed to do and how to operate it, they will not use it or use it incorrectly. This can lead to failure of the system. Train process owners (department managers) in how to use the system. Have them train the users.

The members of the project team need to get thorough training and skills that will enable them to establish how to best use the functionality for the operation and maintenance phase. Since the members of the project team will become the trainers of other employees in the organization, they must be provided with the skill to able to formulate and deliver a training course.

The users of the ERP system need to have the skill for using the functionality relevant to their roles. They should understand the basic concepts of ERP and also how to perform the day-to-day activities in the ERP system. Others who require training include managers, who should have at least an appreciation of what the system does. Ideally, the project manager should have a good understanding o fall aspects of the system so that he can be effective in dealing with any issues raised.

A select number of people will require more specific technical training so that they can design databases, write scripts, manage users, generate reports and query the database for specific requirements.

The system administrators need to be able to setup the system and then maintain it. They will require knowledge about how to handle system security and deal with technical problems. They will need to develop a level of understanding of the functionality so that, at some stage after implementation when the project team is disbanded, they are able to manage the system smoothly.

Additionally, over the period it can be expected that the ERP tool will evolve to some degree along with the company and projects that it serves. From time to time it may be necessary to conduct additional training sessions to keep everyone abreast of the changes that have been implemented.

ERP training is very important not only to improve the business process, but also it helps eliminating any fear that the employees may have due to the changing work environment.

An appropriate guidance and training must be provided to the staff to overcome any mental fear that has been cropped up due to the changes has taken place with the ERP implementation in their work place also in their work nature.

The biggest fear shared by people in companies going in for ERP implementation is the loss of their jobs. As soon as the decision about the ERP implementation is announced rumours about the new system automating all the tasks and making people redundant will start floating around. When a company talks about ERP and automation, the immediate reaction is that computers will replace people.

But what most people fail to hear is that the people who are doing manual jobs before computerization were able to get better jobs with higher salaries once they got trained in ERP system. So if a employee is trained with ERP system and willing to learn the new system and new way of doing business, then he or she does not have anything to fear. They will also have very good chance of getting better jobs with higher salaries.

Another fear that must be addressed is people's fear of failure - the fear of not understanding or being able to work within an automated environment. Many companies make the serious mistake of not insisting on a very thorough ERP training program that will insure the employees have the knowledge and a confidence level of adapting and using the new ERP system to the maximum benefit of the company.

Some employers view ERP training as an expensive exercise and by not sending the employees to the training session save some money. Beware of that claim and the firms are bound to face huge loss due to improper usage of an ERP system and on the contrary depriving ERP training to the staff could bring big loss to the firm in the long run.

Employees must get proper ERP training

For the successful operations of an ERP system it is very important that the employees who use the system must be trained properly. Training should not be confined only the initiall training but there is a need for continuous training programs and refresher courses for the ERP success.

In every organization there will be occasional new recruitments of employees and these employees should be properly trained in the basics of ERP and how to use the ERP system before they can be allotted to different departments.

More precisely, the learning objectives establish what the learner should be able to do as a result of the training. Knowledge may be sought, particularly if related to operational best practices.

An ERP training strategy can be developed defining the ERP training policy and outlining the training program. Each steam will be identified and outlined in terms of the above stages. The strategy will provide an overview of the training objectives, identifying the people involved, the different streams and the content of each steam, organized into courses and sessions.

In many cases while organizations spend whopping amounts on ERP software and its implementation, training of employees who are assigned to run the system is getting neglected or not provided adequately. This act amounts to improper handling of the ERP system which ultimately results in sub-optimal performance of the system or in some cases failed implementations.
