(This is a PowerPoint presentation.) UW-Madison has implemented the PeopleSoft student administration system since 1997. Admissions has been through two complete process cycles, and we have processed three enrollment cycles and have implemented the financial aid/student financial processes. This presentation focuses on our keys to success: vision, planning, organizational structure, budget, training, communication, discipline, and reusability. The session will emphasize the issues we believe require careful management attention and consideration. The material presented will be particularly useful to institutions just beginning their planning for an ERP project. For those institutions that are in the midst of an implementation this session should be valuable as an implementation methodology comparison.
