Organizations struggle with structures, routines, past, current and future processes, with individuals, emotions, sluggishness, speed, errors, paradoxic line-ups and many more - interesting enough to keep oneself busy over the years: professionally as well as academically.

PhD Thesis, University of Hildesheim 2014

Learning: A Disregarded Dimension in ERP Implementation-Projects. A Qualitive Study. 

Implementations of ERP-systems are highly complex and critical projects in organizations. Since the early 1990ies it has been continuously reported that such projects often fail.
Corresponding studies try to analyze potential reasons and settings of failed ERP-implementations (the so called "Critical Success Factors"). At large, the studies on critical success factors refer to symptoms without analyzing the complex inner project-life as such.
The study at hand basically points to aspects of individual and organizational learning to discover more sophisticated explanatory models on potential problems and peculiarities of such projects. Results of qualitive case studies allow new and unusual insights to fields of organizational practices that have been relatively unknown so far in the context of ERP-implementations.
It is described amongst others, how learning processes could lead to partially paradox organaizational models and how closely IT-based and organizational change- and development-processes are linked to each other.
