Reviews: "You owe it to your company and yourself to read this book. If you do so, you will sharply increase your odds for success and spend a lot less money. Steve has done the ERP industry a big service." - Tom F. Wallace, early ERP pioneer, author, and Distinguished Fellow at The Ohio State University Center for Operational Excellence. "There really aren't many "must-read" ERP books in the 30 year (or so) history of ERP, but you can add this book to the must-read list. The book fits nicely into what I call the Center of Excellence movement - the push by ERP customers to gain more value out of their ERP investments and endure less headaches." - Jon Reed, SAP/ERP Market Analyst. "I love this book." - R. Ray Wang, CEO and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research and a founding partner of the Altimeter Group. "If the Project Management Institute (PMI) had a certification program in ERP Management, this would be the only textbook needed." - Andy Klee, President of Klee Associates, ERPtips.com (SAP), and JDEtips.com (Oracle EnterpriseOne).
