Exclusive Interview with Guy Sorrill and Don Elliott
Following on from our last interview with Don Elliott, Program Director at Elliott Business Solutions, renowned for his success in organisational transformation, programme sales, programme management, complex delivery, and a leader in program recovery, we had the pleasure of speaking with him again. Guy Sorrill our Director of Consulting at Sysdoc asked Don some fundamental and unanswered questions, including;
Why do ERP implementations fail? What have been past successes? Who is getting it right? What are the 'Elephants in the room'?
We are quickly learning that to grow beyond the Covid-19 pandemic we need to evolve. Gaps in previous processes and mistakes that have been repeated time and time again can no longer be allowed to remain as part of a healthy and successful business plan.

No Mission. No Vision. No Strategy - No Problem, Right? Wrong!!
If you need any evidence as to why, then we only have to look to our history. Unfortunately, if you Google ‘Battles that failed because of no plan’, you will find an overwhelming list of examples. The Battle of Little Bighorn is riddled with spontaneous moves on the field that did not have a favourable ending. What was the problem? No strategy. Some of you will have heard of the film ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ and think what a brilliant day he must have had with no plan. However, his day ended with him going nowhere, gaining nothing, achieving zero and a collection of mini failures along the way. Whether it be a film or a part of our history, having no strategy or vision in mind can leave us unprepared for when it really counts. (A certain global pandemic comes to mind).
Upskilling and reskilling: A conversation making its way to the front of digital learning
Spencer Holmes, Director at Totem Learning Ltd, and Sarah Vaughan, Sysdoc Digital Learning Manager have been co-hosting for the past few months vlogs with a number of inspiring guest speakers from across the digital learning industry. Vlogs that often side-track into other topics which unearth points of discussion that could easily exceed the allotted time slot of recording. However, all are linked and crucial to digital learning and how to navigate it in a remote world. A reoccurring theme in these vlogs, what a shame that it took a global pandemic for us to realise the attention we need to give to digital learning, in particular reskilling and upskilling our workforce.
