 “Packaged Software Gone Bad  –  Now What?? 


Alec Sharp, Clariteq Systems Consulting

Packaged software implementations can deliver excellent, even transformational, results. Sometimes… not so much. 

Our speaker, Alec Sharp, has seen organisations spend $25M, $100M, $500M, and in the most extreme case, $1B, on selecting and implementing purchased software. And after all that expense, sometimes it simply doesn’t work, or works so poorly the organisation is worse off than before. 

When called in to help with “project recovery,” Alec finds the factors leading to these failures are surprisingly consistent, and, always surprising to the organisation.  

There are happy endings too!! Alec will discuss factors that make for extremely successful implementations:
