Significant system changes were implemented two months ago. The changes were well-planned, well-designed, thoroughly tested before and after conversion, and several employee training sessions were conducted. Still, the changes haven't resulted in any productivity increases, cost savings, or process improvements. Management is puzzled and needs to find out why the system isn't successful. The best action for management to take is A) conduct face-to-face interviews with managers, key personnel, and randomly selected employees from each functional area impacted by the system changes in an attempt to discover why the changes aren't effective. B) make sure the system changes were well documented and review the documentation to see if perhaps some important feature or process was overlooked during the design phase. C) email a series of questions to all employees, asking for input about further changes that would bring about the desired results D) advise employees that consultants will be conducting observation sessions over the next two weeks to determine if employees have fully implemented changes and whether there is any evidence of resistance to the changes Which of the following is not true about business process management (BPM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems? A) ERP systems encompass all functions and processes in an organization, but BPM systems are implemented at process or unit levels in an organization B) BPM systems are process-centered, but ERP systems are data-centered C) Organizations can use both ERP and BPM systems at the same time D) ERP and BPM systems rely heavily technology for communication and coordination
