THE ERP JOURNEY AS TOLD BY HARRY POTTER

Are You A Hero?

That’s a pretty loaded question but bear with me. This video by Mathew Winkler with TED-Ed titled, “What Makes A Hero?” explains that dozens upon dozens of narratives, from The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, and Moana to Prometheus and The Odyssey were all derived from the same formula: The Monomyth, also known as The Hero’s Journey.

The Hero’s Journey

The Hero’s Journey dictates the precise steps that a hero must take along their path to success.  These include a call to action, help from a mentor and/or supernatural force, some setbacks along the way, and ultimately a decisive victory.

My personal favorite example of a modern Monomyth is the Harry Potter series, in particular Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. In this example, Harry Potter is the hero, Albus Dumbledore is the mentor and of course, (he who shall not be named, Lord Voldemort is the villain.

The ERP Journey

The Hero’s Journey is similar to the ERP Journey. Just like the hero, or Harry Potter, you must start by recognizing your needs, technology wise or in Harry’s case learning how to save the wizarding world from being taken over by Voldemort. This is where ACC comes into the picture.  We love to play the role of the mentor, often aptly referred to as the wise old man or sage archetype.  We are your Dumbledore giving advice and counsel when it comes to ERP systems.

In all seriousness, it is our job, just as it was Dumbledore’s to give you the wisdom and tools you need to overcome whatever is hurting your company.  Whether it be inefficiency, data silos, or an evil entity seeking you out.

On your ERP journey, we provide you with ERP software, not wands or invisibility cloaks (though that would be pretty cool too).  Just like Dumbledore, we offer time, training, and advice to make sure that you and your team are taught the ways of being a wizard of your ERP system.  We provide you with flexible, extensive training and make sure that you’ve met clear measures of mastery before sending you to take on Voldemort. Even then, our inner Dumbledore is still easily accessible to lend a helping hand by way of our talented support team.

So, to answer my original question, you are a hero.  The fact that you’ve recognized a clear problem and are actively working to correct it means that you’ve taken the first steps on your very own journey.  The question is, do you have the right knowledge and tools to reach your wizardly potential and slay the villain?

At ACC, we offer a full range of ERP services, including consulting, implementation, targeted training, and ongoing support.  We aim to build long-lasting relationships based on trust by committing to support your business goals throughout your journey.

To learn how you can be an ERP Hero please contact 856- 335- 1010 or satkins@4acc.com and let’s get wizarding!
