A small Canadian ERP company sold a full suite of their supply chain management software to a group of hospitals in Ontario. These hospitals had several different ERP systems and wanted to consolidate onto one ERP system.
After the contract was signed and the implementation began, the ERP company found out that much of the functionality that the hospitals wanted/needed was not working as expected. The ERP company had to find a way to quickly troubleshoot and resolve the issues in order to meet the hospitals’ needs or they could potentially lose these customers and/or get a bad reputation in the industry.
At the same time, the hospital was struggling with employee buy-in as the new software required training and a new business processes from the floor level up to management.

Rubric reflects importance on content, critical thinking and ability to support and express ideas.
Do not use bullet points or numbered lists. Use complete sentences and paragraphs to express your thoughts.
There is no maximum number of words or pages. I would expect between two and four pages to accomplish the assignment objectives.
Fonts: 12 point and 1.0 to 1.15 spacing is fine. Arial or Times New Roman for paragraph body.
Use your own words and do not copy sources. Be careful to not simply change out words using synonyms or relying on ‘bots’ to change the wording. Write in your own words.
