Training in ERP for everyone

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.
