Executive Summary

Karin Chung is in charge of a large scale accounting software installation project and just after four months of the initial kick off the project is already marred by interpersonal issues, coordination problems and slipping timelines. The report presented here analyses the situation from the context of project management best practices and identifies the causes of the current logjam. A look at what could have been done
differently to avoid such a situation is taken and the future course of action to bring the project back on track is charted out. The report ends with the lessons learnt and what steps to take if a similar situation is encountered again in future.

Introduction

Over 70% of large scale enterprise system implementations fail (Kim, 2011) and looking at the situation of the accounting software installation, it seems to be headed in the same direction. This report is aimed at analysing the current situation of the accounting software installation project at Karin Chung’s organisation. The report starts by extracting the relevant observations from the case history and then moves on to identify the possible reasons that led to the current situation. In the later part, the report looks at some of the best practices for project management that could have been used in this project to avoid reaching the current conflict situation. The last section consists of recommendations on what can be done now to salvage the situation and to ensure that the same problems are not encountered at a later stage of the project implementation.
