Our Case Studies for

ERP Project Recovery

Our Methodology

for ERP Project Recovery

The process starts with an assessment that helps build the as-is and to-be process models, along with the enterprise architecture. The assessment will find processes and data sets that might need to be redefined or re-engineered to remove the over-bloating of the system. Once agreed on the to-be state of the system, the changes are then implemented and deployed.


This phase starts with a deep diagnosis of the current issues, including the diagramming as-is and to-be states of the processes and enterprise architecture. This phase would come up with a few solutions with their pros and cons that can be explored further as the potential options to recover the project.

Technical Analysis

The phase is a very detailed design of the solution identified in the previous step. This step documents the interfaces and data mappings if there are going to be any technical changes.


This phase is the optimization phase if there might still be room for improvement after making those changes. Or if the suggested changes don’t work as expected. Then the next step would be to explore the other options.

Business Analysis

This phase takes a deep dive into the option identified and builds the change journey for each persona impacted. This phase also explores the associated financial risks and identifiers a back up plan for each financial risk.


This phase implements and tests the changes required to recover the project. Sometimes the recovery could mean reimplementing the whole project. But the total time taken for re-implementation may not be as high as your data is already translated and exists in the right format.
