Popular thinking brings only average results
In my experiences when dealing with ERP-CRM implementation projects, we limit our success when we adopt popular thinking, we must reject common thinking if we want to be successful and accomplish great results within our projects. Why is popular thinking bad?
1) Popular thinking loves the status quo, it puts its confidence in the idea of the moment, and it resists changes and dampens innovation.
2) ERP projects are about transforming or improving your way of doing business, a successful ERP implementation should provide better business intelligence, streamline business operations, reduce costs, and ultimately help you grow your business.
Popular thinking has often been proved wrong and restrictive for business transformation projects.
Some ways to question popular thinking
1) Think before you follow (don’t follow automatically, we tend to take the path of least resistance, do not fear rejection, we need to think what is best and not what’s more popular
2) Appreciate others thinking and always criticize your own thinking
3) Try things in new ways (always seek new options)
