"One-Size-Does-Not-Fit-All": Teaching MBA Students Different ERP Implementation Strategies
Venkatesh, Viswanath
Journal of Information Systems Education, v19 n2 p141-146 2008
This teaching tip discusses an approach to educating MBA students regarding strategies to select, design, and implement enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. The teaching approach presented here discusses how to teach students about different strategies based success stories from three different organizations, namely Cisco, Tektronix, and Harley-Davidson (Harvard Business School cases), in one 2 1/2 hour (or two 1 1/4 hour sessions). The emphasis of the discussion will help students appreciate the need for different strategies in different organizational environments. In addition to my subjective reports of enhanced student learning, student ratings of effectiveness, efficiency, and enjoyment are presented. (Contains 3 tables.)
