The people we work for can be one of two things:
- Easy to work for and a huge help in completing projects
- Difficult to please and simply impossible to figure out, making projects impossible to complete
If your situation classifies under #2, then you definitely need to be clever in the ERP Software selection process as well as extremely careful. Here are a few tips to help you keep your boss off your back and the right ERP solution in your hands!
- Develop a report of charts, graphs, and detailed data to show the due diligence in your research process as well as an audit trail. When your boss has hundreds of questions, this easy-to-read and understand data will save you time.
- Instead of using Excel to make your comparisons, consider using a decision support system for a more in-depth view into what ERP solution may be right for you.
In conclusion, working with an overbearing boss may not be an ideal situation. But as long as you keep him/her informed, it’s likely to curve some of their negative feedback. So our advice is to stay one step ahead of them and offer updates, statistical findings, and opinions in an organized format. They’re much more likely to get on board with your selection because of the hard work you put into it.
