The Project Preparation and Planning phase is the first step to ERP software selection. In this step of the software selection process, organizations identify the key business drivers to justify such an effort and the executive sponsors for the initiation of a software selection project. In the absence of significant business challenges driving the need for new software, the project need not go forward. Once such challenges have been clearly identified, the project can move forward with appropriate executive sponsorship.
