Workshop Background and Goals
ERP implementation projects ask for major financial investments of organisations. They impact many processes and employees of an organisation and require significant organisational change. ERP implementations are not only a pervasive phenomenon from a financial point of view, but they also embed a high level of complexity from an engineering, a technical, and an organisational perspective. As a consequence heterogeneous managerial competences are required. This workshop addresses in particular approaches, methods and techniques to investigate and analyse these management aspects of ERP implementation projects.

Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. Papers should clearly establish the research contribution, and relation to previous research. Position and survey papers are also welcome

Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
• project management
• human and organizational factors
• critical success factors (CSF) and critical failure factors (CFF)
• change management
• implementation characteristics in SMEs
• implementation scenarios
• risk management
• risk analysis
• cost estimation
• IT service specification
• ITIL applications
• service level agreements
• power and politics in ERP implementations
• metrics and measurement
• implementation improvement
• maturity levels of ERP implementation
• ERP maintenance
• case studies on successful & failed implementations
• role of the IS function during implementation
• methodological aspects of ERP research
• business process management
