Main Article Content
- This research is presented as an executive summary report, narrating an in-depth analysis of ERP implementation projects occurring at two SME companies in a construction industry. We aims to provide a holistic understanding of causal factors which lead to an outcome of the projects, considering cost, time, and reliability of the resulting ERP system. The research followed the tradition of qualitative analysis while combining the advantage of system thinking mechanics. To this end, we encourage using the combined research method to deepen the analysis of the cases.
