Finding that perfect fit.


You wouldn’t try squeeze into a shirt that was two sizes to small, so why would you try and force your business into a generic ERP system that doesn’t fit your needs?

one size fit all

One size doesn’t fit all, so it’s not surprising to know there is rarely a perfect fit for project management methods unless they are made-to-measure to meet your specific requirements. However, just as with clothing, few companies have the budget to justify a tailor-made project management option. There is no need to worry, it just means you have to learn how to choose your project management processes carefully.

Just about everyone handles projects from time to time, at home and at work. But would you consider your business to be project-based? Confirming whether your company is project-based helps you decide whether your current ERP system really fits the needs of your company — or whether you have an ill-fitting system that is crippling your profitability and productivity and could rip apart at the seams at any moment.
