“If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.” Peter Drucker, 1909 – 2005, referred to as the founder of modern management.
Business owners crave insight into the workings of successful companies. They study what their competition is doing, and they weigh technology’s latest offerings in pursuit of cost controls. In the end, they’re looking for proven systems that will help give them a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Back in the 1990’s, when ERP systems were being used, primarily, by large enterprise, it was unthinkable such complex software would one day be available as an off-the-shelf software. After all, ERP systems were handling multi-layered business processes that required many months of implementation, ongoing training, and IT savvy.
Before ERP’s introduction to the corporate world, Peter Drucker, back in 1946, referenced the automotive industry as the “industries of industries.” On its own, the making of an automobile required a coming together of many “disciplines” from engineering to production line cycles and beyond.
“…there is hardly another product (automobiles) that sit at the intersection of so many disciplines—from manufacturing to design to engineering to materials science to energy concerns…” From a Peter Drucker quote, Car&Driver magazine, July 2015 issue.
Six years before he died, Drucker co-authored a paper on ERP and its perceived impact on business management processes in the future. In some regard, the developers of Microsoft Dynamics ERP software and Mr. Drucker were all cut from the same cloth.
