Diversity and Inclusion for the Win

You must have often come across organizations promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace. These two terms are now being used frequently and often interchangeably across all industries. While it is true that these two concepts are interconnected, they are far from being interchangeable, and the first step towards promoting a robust and diverse environment in the workplace is identifying the differences between the two.

Diversity is about representation, while inclusion is about how much you value and integrate the opinions and contributions from these different sets of people into your work environment. It shouldn’t matter where they are coming from or who they are, but a diverse and inclusive workplace makes everyone feel valued and equally involved.

Several scientific studies claim that diversity enhances creativity and encourages different perspectives, leading to better decision-making and driving breakthrough innovations. It also improves customer experience, enhances reputation, increases the market share and the overall productivity of the organization. The benefits of assembling a diverse team are endless, and while it is true that the overall diversity in the workplace is increasing each day, there is still a lot of work to be done. The need for greater gender diversity in the workplace has never been more critical.

A survey conducted by the Pew Research Centre claims that only about 5% of CEOs in major corporations across the United States are women. The number is painstakingly low, but there are reasons for optimism.

Women across the world are breaking gender barriers and taking on senior leadership roles in industries that have been dominated by men for decades. Since the year 2015, diversity in the workplace has been increasing exponentially. It’ll most likely continue to grow as organizations recognize the benefits and the positive impact of promoting equal opportunities for all in the workplace.

Women leaders are slowly coming out on top across most industries today, but unfortunately, tech companies are still trying to catch up. It is rather surprising because technology is all about innovation and progress, yet it is the one falling behind. Tech companies need to step up their game and take firm steps to promote a more diverse and inclusive environment for all.

A poll conducted by Intech suggests that some of the best ways to promote gender equality in the workplace are promoting an open-minded atmosphere, work-life balance, equal pay, and leadership roles for all regardless of their gender.

Intech has been hard at work trying to implement such practices in its workplace. The percentage of women leaders at Intech has been consistently increasing in the last two years. We have seen a substantial rise in the year 2021 with the percentage increase in the number standing at 61%, and it is projected to grow even faster in the coming months. We are taking solid steps to work on the gender divide, and it is certainly reassuring to know that our efforts are coming to fruition. Our efforts have also been recognized at a global level. Intech won the third position at the “IAMCP Diversity and Inclusion Poster Challenge.” We believe in giving the best experience to anyone who is a part of the Intech family. We take pride in announcing that all the planning and execution activities for our brand launch were also carried out by a 100% women-run team in a tech company and that alone speaks volumes about the kind of culture that we are promoting here at Intech.

The capabilities that women leaders bring to the table are undeniable. The last year has been a landmark for women leaders at Intech, with many of them taking on senior management roles, and it is only the beginning of better things to come. We are in awe of the courage, wisdom, and dedication manifested by these powerful women who have been working tirelessly towards helping us realize the future that we had once imagined. These fearless women truly exemplify the bold spirits and ambitions of our organization and push us to work even harder to try to make this world a better and more equitable place for all.

7 Alarming Signs of an ERP System Implementation Failure & Ways to Prevent it

There are no hidden reasons for having an ERP system in the organization. We have already by far acknowledged the benefits of applying the technology in the business process. Ever imagined or experienced some bugs in the go-easy process ERP system? When recovering from a failed ERP implementation, the most common question organizations have is, “where we lacked?” Many organizations have failed to answer this question

It’s better to look after the root causes of failure in terms of the overall project execution.

Have a look at some precautionary root causes that should be on the list of the organization while implementing an ERP system.

Reasons for ERP Failure

1. False Defined Goals for the ERP Software

Very often various successful organizations have reviewed the ERP implementations as business transformation than technology projects. They believed that ERP systems have a huge impact on their business growth and are much more convenient than any Windows upgrade. Somewhere ERP implementations have a significant impact on employees, business processes, and the organization’s overall strategy.

However, many ERP consultants are observed to be more focused on technology rather than people and processes. In contrast, various research showed that software functionality is one of the least important processes for ERP success. So, it is advised to stop thinking so much about ERP implementations and start focusing more on people and processes.

 

2. Unrealistic Expectations

In order to avoid unexpected costs, various organization focusses on the cost-cutting and therefore, some ERP vendors low down the implementation cost and duration. This is where the ERP failure starts taking its bow with unrealistic expectations.

The SAP failure at Lidl demonstrates the importance of realistic expectations. The retailer defined strategic goals at the beginning of the project but didn’t consider the success factors necessary to achieve these goals.

 

3. Lack of Executive Buy-in

The executive team may have approved the project budget, but their job is far from over. They also need to form an executive steering committee to clarify the overall digital strategy and make decisions about resource allocation, timeline, budget, and benefits realization.

Executive involvement ensures the ERP implementation doesn’t become a technology project but fits into the organization’s overall strategy. This is important because organizations that use ERP software to enable a long-term digital strategy are more likely to realize benefits, such as improved customer service and sustainable competitive advantage.

 

4. Lack of Business Management Process

While working for/with a client, we help them in mapping their real-time state before selecting the ERP software. This allows and helps the organizations to define well-planned ERP requirements to share with ERP vendors and reveals the improvement opportunities.

Therefore, if your organization is simply moving to the ERP implementation rather than planning a digital transformation, it is recommended not to conduct the business processes further before ERP selection. Instead, it is highly appreciated to at least define overarching goals that will guide the choice of ERP software.

 

5. Resistance to Change Management

It’s organizational change management that can for sure prevent ERP failure. These organizations didn’t build a change management team and viewed change management as simply an end-user training exercise.

Organizations should invest in organizational assessments, employee communications, and customized training, that could ensure that their employees can effectively use the new ERP software or not.

 

6. Excessive Software Customization

ERP customization becomes a burden when you customize functionality that should be standardized. For example, many back-office processes are not competitive differentiators, so standard software functionality is usually sufficient. If employees are pressuring you to customize processes like this, it’s a sign of change resistance. We recommend decreasing the resistance instead of increasing the customization.

 

7. Underexperienced Resources

Make sure your systems integrator and ERP consultant, both should be experienced in ERP integration. An experienced ERP consultant within the industry is well aware of the challenges your organization might face and can ensure successful access with the right expertise.

 

How to Prevent ERP Failure?

The prevention of ERP failure is possible with ease by just have a keen observation for warning signs. If any of the above issues are fund-relatable, then it’s obviously not too late to change the process.

An organization should move with the best possibilities and careful consideration of all angles for successful implementation. Teaming up with experienced consultants is the best solution to void any inconvenience while implementing the ERP software. Let Intech Systems be your tech partner to guide you through the ERP successful implementation.
