ERP solutions comprised the lion’s share of a global estimated $405 billion in enterprise software spending in 2018. However, year after year, ERP initiatives prove to be a game of Russian roulette, with unpredictable risks and rewards. Before starting an ERP project, it is essential to evaluate your organization’s ability to take on the initiative.

Long before products compete in the marketplace, corporations battle one another for talent, capital and brand awareness. This struggle has intensified with autonomous vehicles as there is a global race to be first to market. To win requires a Pre-Launch Product Mobilization (PLPM©) strategy that secures resources and gets your autonomous program noticed years before it launches. A critical piece to garnering attention and buzz requires serious players to exhibit at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and demo their prototypes on the streets of Las Vegas. Failure to execute either one flawlessly leaves you vulnerable to your competitors.
