Ten Tips for Successful ERP Implementation
These are the Columbus top 10 tips for ERP implementation. For more information go to www.columbusglobal.com Transcript of the interview 10 Tips for successful implementation 1. Define Your Desired Results Kapil Mishra "One of the key risks that customers face in implementing ERP systems is not being able to make an impact on the business bottom line", Steve Weaver "When you are purchasing a new ERP system you need to understand your business, what you do, what you want to achieve, what your processes are, not what you necessarily do today but also where you want to go to what you ultimately want to be and what ultimately want to achieve". 2. Don't Automatically Reuse Old Workflows Steve Weaver "Many people will buy a new ERP system without understanding their business and what they are effectively doing is spending an awful lot of money to replace a like for like system. 3. Map All of Your Business Processes Kapil Mishra "It boils down to building a solid business case right in the beginning being very clear as to what are the bottlenecks in the processes, what are the areas that are a challenge today and which specific areas of the business need to be impacted. This is really a blueprint that should be in place before you start thinking about the IT component of the ERP implementation." Steve Weaver "They need to map their business processes, they need to get the business stakeholders, the end users into rooms to document what they do and as importantly question why they do things." 4. Ensure you have a long term plan for your solution Chris Mean "The best customers that we work with are the ones that think ahead and plan ahead. And plan in optimization stages where together we can partner how to then drive their business forward after initial go live." 5. Make sure you have executive level sponsorship Brian Blood "Constant involvement of senior executives during the project process helps to mitigate the risk of architecting processes in the overall solution that are counter intuitive to the company's overall strategy." 6. Assemble the right project team Chris Braisby "One of the big problems that we often face on projects is that when we are assembling a project team and the customer is putting that project team together then they often put the team that is available, the people that they can most easily spare and not the key people, the key decision makers in the organisation who can understand all the issues, understand where their weaknesses are and also where their current strengths are." 7. Try to standardise and avoid developments Chris Mean "A common reason why an ERP implementation project might fail is that too many developments are identified and approved by the customer. We work very strongly with our customer to try and minimise those developments and one of the techniques you can use is to ensure you have strong board sponsorship about the direction of the project and you have good buy in from the key users about adopting a new solution" 8. Make user training a priority Steve Weaver "Training your core team and training the end users on the ultimate software you are going to use is a necessity. It is generally towards the end of a project and many businesses set a go live date and the part that gets crushed in the timescales is the training and the end user exposure to the system, so the more investment you can make time wise in training ultimately leads to a better go live. 9. Focus on getting the right data into the system Martin Clothier "The key things for data migration are start early, there are no magic bullets, define the migration as a separate project and chose the right people in the business to own the data and test, test and test again as part of user acceptance testing and good data management doesn't stop after go live, it's an ongoing process that needs to be defined." 10. Select the right partner and solution Chris Mean "Choosing the right solution and the right partner for the implementation is key. Often you see people choosing a solution based on cost or even the partner based on cost as well and I think it is important to think how does that solution fit what your business needs? How does it fit your business needs for the future? And how can you work with the partner you have selected. Do they have the same mind set, do they have the same approach and ultimately can you build long term strategic business relationship with them."

Simon Sinek on How to Improve Strategic Thinking
In Chapter 14 of 16 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, author and public speaker Simon Sinek answers "How Do You Make Strategic Thinking More Implementation Friendly?" To Sinek it comes down to language and the importance of using words people understand. When the language is simple, the directive becomes clear to everyone and can be more easily followed and implemented. Simon Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. His goal is to "inspire people to do the things that inspire them" and help others find fulfillment in their work. Sinek is the author of "Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action". He works regularly with the United States Military, United States Congress, and many organizations, agencies and entrepreneurs. Sinek is an adjunct professor at Columbia University and an adjunct staff member at the think tank RAND Corporation. Sinek earned a BA in Cultural Anthropology from Brandeis University. View more career videos like these at http://www.captureyourflag.com Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/captureyourflag Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/captureyourflag Transcript: Erik Michielsen: How do you make strategic thinking more implementation friendly? Simon Sinek: Language. Strategic thinking can be more implementation friendly when you use words that you understand. It’s amazing to me how often we read strategies that are incomprehensible. To be the pre-eminent supplier, you know, we’re gonna—I mean, what—I mean these are things that you can’t do. Based on what metric? We wanna be the best? That’s your strategy? Like that’s not a strategy. That’s nothing. We wanna be the—we wanna be ranked number one. What—revenues, profit, quality, customer satisfaction, loyalty, what? It’s complete nonsense, you know? And so the more specific a strategy can be, the clearer the language can be, the more implementable it can be. I’m a great believer that if you speak like a scientist, only scientists will understand you, but if you speak like a truck driver, both truck drivers and scientists will understand you. And the amazing thing is if you actually speak like a scientist, even a lot of the scientists don’t understand you. The point is use very simple terminology that’s somebody who’s not in your industry who doesn’t know your business would understand what you’re trying to do. And if that’s the basis of the language that you choose to use that anyone can understand what you’re attempting to do and if you started someone tomorrow, they would be able to take the reins and go because it’s so crystal clear. That’s the standard that we need to use inside our own organizations. When the language is clear, when the language is specific, when the language is simple, it’s easy. It’s easy to implement. Right? Off the races you go, you know?

SEO For Beginners: 3 Powerful SEO Tips to Rank #1 on Google in 2018
Are you new to SEO and want to rank #1 on google this upcoming year? Here are 3 SEO strategies that will boost your rankings! Subscribe here to learn more of my secret SEO tips: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=neilvkpatel Find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/neilkpatel/ Read more on my blog: https://neilpatel.com/blog Do you want to rank number one on Google in 2018? Well, I hate to say it, it's tough. Ten years ago it used to be easy, but now it's hard. And you know what? Unless you watch this whole video, you're not going to be able to rank number one on Google. Hi everyone, I'm Neil Patel, and I'm going to share with you three ways you can rank #1 on Google today. #1: Focus on content Google has this update called Hummingbird, and with Hummingbird, websites who just have content on everything won't do as well as sites which focus on one single niche and are super thorough. You want to be VERY thorough with your SEO content. Poke holes in your content and fill them all up, so then that way people are like, "This is the end all site "that you should end up reading "if you're interested in dating online." #2: Optimize your title tag and your meta description Have you ever done a Google search, and noticed that every time you do it, there is this link at the top, and then there's this one sentence with a link at the top is called the title tag. And the description below is called the meta description. Now think of it this way, if you search for the phrase online dating, and you don't see the word online dating in neither the title or the description, are you going to click on the result? Well if you are, there's something wrong, because why would you click on a result that isn't related to what you're looking for? In addition to that, have you ever searched for a term like online dating? And have you ever noticed that the word isn't in the title or description? That's because Google tracks who's clicking on what listing, and they've learned that when a keyword is in the listing, that same keyword that you're searching for, they know you're way more likely to click through. So in your title tag and your meta description, make sure you include the keyword. But you can't just add the keyword, "online dating," right? The easiest way and what I would do and I wish it was this simple; I will just put "online dating, online dating, online dating, online dating." If I could put it 20 times so people would know that the article is on online dating, I wish I would get more clicks. But it's not that simple. Yes you have to include the keyword in your title and your description, but it has to be appealing. If it doesn't flow in a sentence, it's not easy to read, and it's not appealing or evoking curiosity, no one is gonna click through. #3: Use Google Search Console Did you know that Google gives you a tool that teaches you how to rank number one on Google? Yes I know that sounds ridiculous but it is true, and it's called Google Search Console. If you're not already a user of it, sign up. It doesn't cost a dollar. You're missing out if you're not using it. I can't emphasize that enough. So now that you're using Google Search Console...give it a few days because it takes some time to populate data. You'll see a screen that shows Search Analytics and this shows you all the pages on your website that are getting you traffic. But the cool thing about Google Search Console is they also show you which articles are getting impressions. Take all the keywords you're getting impressions for and start adding them to your copy. Now we have an article on Instagram, and it teaches you how to get over 300 targeted Instagram followers per day. The article is around 10,000 words. When I first wrote that article, it wasn't 10,000 words, it was roughly 2,500. I went to Google Search Console, I saw all the people that are searching for terms related to the article, I added them within that article. I made it more thorough and you know what? My SEO traffic more than tripled to that article. Yes it is that simple. And when I made that change, it didn't happen right away, but I noticed the results within 50 days. That's not a long time. Now that you've learned these three tips, I challenge you in which I want you to take these tactics and implement them, and then after you implement them, in the next 45 days I want you to leave a comment with your results. Because if you're not doing well, that means I'm not happy.

Strategic Management: Organizational Structure
This is a snippet from a course from one of our online MBA programs. It focuses on Strategic Management and how organizational structure are the building blocks of a business and their strategic management. Transcript of the Lesson Structure refers to the formalized arrangement and interaction between tasks, people and resources in an organization -- and don't forget technology. It's most often seen as 'Org. Chart'. Now a very simple organizational structure, this is more operationally based and comes from entrepreneurship, is where you got an owner and a few employees with some sort of tasks and responsibilities underneath it. It tends to be pretty direct supervision and pretty informal, so that's the simplest organizational structure. Operationally based, think of your typical entrepreneur. It can be very demanding on the owner-manager; it's like their wearing a twirly hat. Their IT, their business development, their sales, their delivery. More businesses in this country are this type -- and around the world -- so simple organizational structure. Now we've got the functional organization. This is where you move beyond just a few people. You've got one person on top and usually a function, HR, IT, admin, finance, operations. There's up top boxes underneath and there's reporting relationships: the functional organization. Here's an example: eleven point two, You've got a CEO; it's a process-oriented functional structure. The third type is the divisional structure, and this is where there's a central corporate office, but where each operating division has its own functional specialists. A lot of decision making can go much quicker than taking everything up to the head office. It can also help when you're talking about international, but each division usually has its own profit responsibility rather than up top. So, for instance, you might have the CEO and they'll have an Americas division, a Europe division and Asia division.

Music Marketing: Strategy [7 Steps] (Music Business Lesson MM-001)
C'mon over to http://www.musicbusinessinstitute.com to get your free 3-part video training series for musicians. In this lesson James Taylor of the Music Business Institute goes through the 7 steps of successful music marketing. It's both a blueprint and a roadmap that you can also use to create the kind of music career you desire. It's also deceptively simple although the implementation will require that you learn some step-by-step techniques and tactics. 1. Build Your Fan Lists What is the one thing that all successful artists have in common - LISTS. Lists are the lifeblood of your business as a musician and without them it's almost impossible to make a living from your craft. 2. Develop Relationships With Fans The relationship with your lists will sustain you emotionally, creatively and financially over many, many years if you do it right. However if you disrespect your lists, speak down to them, or treat them as just a source of income then you are likely to have a very short career in music indeed. 3. Learn What Fans Want There exists two main schools (or Tribes) in the marketing of music, the Cool Kids and The Musicpreneur. These two tribes have very different thoughts when it comes to innovation in music and the idea of listening to your fans. 4. Create Work That Excites Fans A musician today has two jobs; creating and communicating. Music Business Institute is primarily about teaching the latter rather than the former because we have to assume you know how to create exciting work. Creating is about honing your craft as a musician. Communicating is about learning how to market and sell what you have created. It's why we call it the Music Business. Music + Business. 5. Identify Fan Type OK, by this point you know that building lists, developing relationships with them, learning what they want and creating work that excites them is important. The 'fan ladder' looks to move someone from just being mildly interested in your music to where they will buy everything you ever produce (concert tickets, recordings, merchandise). You want to move them from being a 'suspect' to a 'super fan' or "true fans". 6. Empower Super Fans Successful artists always have their own small army of super fans. Beliebers (Justin Bieber), Swifties (Taylor Swift), Little Monsters (Lady Gaga), Lovatics (Demi Lovato) and Smilers (Miley Cyrus) are all examples of Super Fans. 7. Promote Work Using Events The final step is about promoting your work using events. Firstly events they create excitement around your music. There are different types of events which can be used to promote your work. There are product launch events, tour announcement events, promotional events and many more.

SCC webinar with Laura Hill
“A learning-outcomes-based general education sustainability requirement” Laura Hill University of Vermont January 30, 2018 at 10AM Eastern The University of Vermont (UVM) adopted a learning-outcomes-based general education sustainability requirement in Fall 2015. The requirement is unique because sustainability is a non-traditional general education theme, and general education requirements are routinely course-based, not learning-outcomes based. The learning-outcomes based nature of the requirement allowed us to create a flexible requirement with three options: taking a sustainability-approved course, enrolling in a sustainability curricula, or engaging in an experiential endeavor whereby the learning outcomes can be met outside of the classroom. We will present how the requirement was successfully implemented through strategic consideration of three important institutional contexts: governance structure, academic culture, and the overall institutional environment. There were 3 stages: (1) pre-operational and sustainability learning outcomes development, (2) formal process and official adoption by UVM’s Faculty Senate, and (3) implementation. As we discuss the institutional framework and the procedural steps taken, we will define key characteristics of success, including patience and genuine attention to process, deliberate and transparent action, willingness to collaborate, and an alliance of students, faculty, administrators, and staff. Our case study can assist other institutions to develop their own strategies for adopting university-wide sustainability requirements. Dr. Laura Hill is Senior Lecturer and Research Associate at the University of Vermont. She co-chairs the UVM Sustainability Curriculum Review Committee. She is trained as a plant ecologist and has conducted research in wetland ecosystems. Her research focused on the potential of growing cold-hardy varieties of rice (Oryza sativa) in cold climates, such as the US Northeast. The project results have informed farmers in the region how to utilize subprime agricultural land (i.e., on dairy farms) to grow rice and increase farm diversity and income in a changing climate. Dr. Hill is the recipient of the 2014 Joseph E. Carrigan Award for Excellence in Teaching and Undergraduate Education. Her article, “Integrating sustainability learning outcomes into a university curriculum,” is currently in press with the International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education.

Mary Ellen Turpel Lafond: Listening to the marginalized to address inequality
Children and youth are among the most vulnerable of society's citizens, with those in government care having a further series of risks. In Canada, our Aboriginal children and youth are among the most at risk. More Aboriginal children are in government care in comparison to other children. Fewer Aboriginal children graduate from high school than their non-Aboriginal counterparts. And, too many Aboriginal children live in poverty, become involved with the youth justice system and suffer from intergenerational impacts of residential schools. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond's goal is that all young people in British Columbia have the same opportunities for success. Her Big Thinking presentation will examine how Aboriginal children, youth and their families have become marginalized, and look at what can be done to ensure that this population @ the edge is heard and this inequality addressed. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond is President of the Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates, an alliance of provincial advocates from across the country who champion the voice and rights of children. She was appointed B.C.'s first Representative for Children and Youth in November 2006 and has worked as a criminal law judge in youth and adult courts, with an emphasis on developing partnerships to better serve the needs of young people in the justice system, particularly sexually exploited children and youth and those with disabilities.

Implementing the Instructional Improvement Cycle Toolkit: Teachers reflect on their action research
The Instructional Improvement Cycle Toolkit guides teachers through the process of selecting, testing, and adjusting instructional strategies. The toolkit was created in collaboration with teachers from York Public Schools in York, Nebraska. In the spring semester of 2015, over 20 York Public School teachers implemented individual action research studies utilizing the Instructional Improvement Cycle tool. Three of these teachers offered to share their experiences and to serve as models for the implementation of the toolkit. This video details their experiences selecting and testing a strategy, collecting student data, using the Excel analysis tool to determine baseline equivalence and effect size and confidence in the effect size, and then reflecting on their results to adjust the own instruction. The content of these videos does not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the Institute of Education Sciences or the U.S. Department of Education, nor does mention of trade names, commercial products, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
