Common Points of Failure: Beware the Inadequate PM

Join Diana Van Blaricom (VP, ERP Strategy) and Kyle Hodges (Director, PMO) in this pre-recorded conversation. This is the first in a five-part conversation around Common Points of Failure in ERP Implementations.

Healthcare organizations are under pressure to make significant investments in IT initiatives, and they need to do it right. The success of these projects hinges on project management (PM) practices that ensure the organization is able to meet its goals and produce a successful outcome. 

Neglecting project management can spell disaster for your healthcare IT initiative. A mismanaged project can result in cost overruns, failed timelines, and decreased transparency. To ensure a successful project from start to finish, it's important to set expectations as early as possible and be sure the right communication channels are in place so all team members are on the same page. PMs need to be sure that documentation and tracking are up-to-date, so everyone in the organization has access to timely information about how individual projects are progressing.

It's important for healthcare organizations to be able to recognize these signs and act accordingly. Want to learn more? Register for our full conversation with ROI's PMO Director, Kyle Hodges, and VP of ERP Strategy, Diana Van Blaricom.
