Brief Presentation Description
Join us for an engaging panel discussion on the topic of managing relationships with ERP consulting partners. With the objective of equipping you, technology leaders, with tools to successfully lead change and to develop strong strategic partnerships, experienced higher education IT leaders and a former consulting partner will share from their own successful experiences and learning moments.

While their attention won’t focus on any specific ERP/SIS systems, the panelists represent involvement with consultants across multiple platforms, including Anthology, Ellucian, Jenzabar, Oracle, Workday, and even home-grown. They’ll offer best practices for building and nurturing strong partnerships and will explore ideas about cultivating effective relationships and how to manage through when things don’t go smoothly. Join us as we explore the keys to successful collaboration and unlock the full potential of your consulting relationships.
