We are delighted to welcome R. Paul Goodyear to our blog where he explains some of the challenges of running a major international non-profit organisation.
International not-for-profit organisations have complex structures and reporting requirements to meet the needs of a large stakeholder audience. The ability to report easily and accurately is vital to ensuring resources are appropriately deployed and efficiency is optimized. Not only that, but like all organizations today, we are subject to ongoing internal and external change.
Although rapid change is normal these days, it is by no means easy to manage, particularly as ERP was not traditionally designed to support change. We built IT infrastructures to last, not to change.
