Cemalettin HATİPOĞLU


Abstract. Organizational culture can also be evaluated as an application stage for the processes and fixations that occur with communication. The lack of cooperation at the desired level may lead to a decrease in effectiveness, especially at the points where teamwork is required, and to a slower implementation. This is one of the most important factors especially for the common purpose and goal setting and for the generations of the application schedules to be generic. The expected cultural change with the ERP system in the company is that the communication and monitoring needs between the units can be met depending on the integration between the processes. During the installation, inter-departmental communication is one of the processes that must be carried out in different dimensions. However, it may be possible to provide mutual optimization between the processes and share the inconveniences. Thus, problems and methods of solution is collected in a common pool will provide opportunity to access the desired point on the same technical jargon and also potential problems the same communication language means in the other unit able to resolve this quickly and both costs and expected benefits. We can summarize the purpose of the research under the heading below: Determine the positive or negative relationships of the cultural factors required for more effective and successful ERP establishment. It can help to ensure that found relationships are taken into consideration in project planning for establishing business and consulting entities. Identifying Cultural Factors for ERP implementations as a guide to management and setting out the performance measurement system for ERP.
