TxM 014 Section 1.12 Why use the JAR&A approach Created by James on 6/26/2013 5:24:20 PM
The following points summarize why I think you should consider using the JAR&A approach:
1. Thought leadership
Innovation, thought leadership, accountability, work ethic – 22 years seeking to understand how to apply "the disciplines of engineering to the ERP implementation industry" – finally think I am close to having a reasonably comprehensive suite of answers that I can teach to others.
2. Wide ranging ERP exposure
Through Pulse Measurements I have been exposed to almost the entire spectrum of ERP products and have never seen an implementation by another party that conforms to these standards.
3. Never been contradicted
I have spoken at about 90 public conferences, presented about 50 public courses and published numerous articles, columns and newsletters most of which have reported negative performance statistics such as "19 out of 20 ERP implementations do NOT deliver what was promised" (Financial Mail) and "most organizations are NOT making better decisions than they were 5 years ago" (Gartner) and I have NEVER been challenged.
4. Precision is intuitively sound
The concept of precision configuration is intuitively sound – we live in a world characterized by precision and casual inspection of sloppy configurations confirms the validity of the concept.
5. First principles approach
The JAR&A approach has been built from the ground up using a fundamental first principles approach calibrated by understanding how failure occurs and how to prevent failure. I have never encountered anyone else who has applied this philosophy.
6. Taxonomies are inherent in life
The use of taxonomies is intrinsically inherent in the way other disciplines (biology, information management, library science, inventory management, etc) organize and classify information and is therefore intuitively fundamental to the organization of information in an ERP or Data Warehouse – I have taken these principles to an even greater level of precision in order to support decision making most effectively. I have yet to find another person who espouses comparable standards.
7. Taxonomies since 1977
I have been involved in the detailed design and application of taxonomies since 1977 and in the design, configuration and implementation of ERP's since 1987 with the express goal of achieving engineering levels of reliability with ERP implementations.
8. Critical issues thinking
My approach to strategy diagnosis and interpretation is critical to my approach and has developed progressively over more than twenty five years. Coupled to my critical issues thinking approach this is vital to the success of projects I undertake giving an ability to rapidly sift through huge amounts of information to distil the essence of what is important.
9. Building construction approach
The building construction orientated approach to design and project management is unique to JAR&A and is profoundly relevant to ERP implementation and business information system projects generally which are fundamentally engineering projects.
All these elements taken together distinguish the JAR&A approach to ERP implementation and offers a much higher probability of a successful outcome to much higher standards and lower overall life-time costs.
