Electronic Resource Planners seem to be both a blessing and a curse.
They seem critical wherever you need to have multiple people co-ordinating the allocation of resources. How the heck was this achieved back in the days when all we had was pen and paper for the task?
However, they seem incredibly complex to set up and clunky to operate. Even if we ignore the setup learning curve, my guess is it must typically take many days, perhaps weeks, to train a newbie to operate one without doing more harm than good.
Does this complexity just come with the territory?
Or is there going to be a breakthrough one day that will make ERP's far more intuitive?
