Core business process activities may include actions around manufacturing production, logistics, sales, marketing, finance, accounting, human resources, and others.

Address the following requirements:

· Describe why change management is important to ERP implementation. 

· Describe why individuals in an organization may resist change and offer at least three strategies for overcoming resistance. 

· Share an example of a successful or unsuccessful ERP implementation at an organization of your choosing.
