  Article Summary  
While a business owner or executive management team is always deeply involved in ERP system selection, implementation is typically turned over to the IT team with executive management much less involved.

The implementation should certainly be led by the IT group, but active and ongoing participation by non-IT professionals is a must.

The importance of the participation of non-IT professionals - the owner or executive management team, the CFO or senior financial leader and heads of user departments - on the implementation project team cannot be overstated.

The input of these non-IT company leaders assures the ERP system correctly provides the improved workflows, controls, and integration of complementary systems that will deliver more actionable management reporting and stronger overall results.

Five ERP implementation steps help assure desired outcomes like improved efficiencies, reduced labor costs and enhanced decision making.

Los Angeles and Southern California executives considering a new ERP system implementation can benefit from talking with a provider of outsourced CFO services.
