Gable, Guy G., Chan, Taizan, & Gee, Wui (2003) Offsetting ERP risk through maintaining standardised application software. In Shanks, Graeme, Seddon, Peter B., & Willcocks, Leslie P. (Eds.) Second-Wave Enterprise Resource Planning Systems - Implementing for Effectiveness. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, pp. 220-240.


The focus of this book is on the most important class of enterprise system, namely Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Organisations typically take the decision to employ ERP systems in an attempt to streamline existing processes. Once these systems are in place, however, their success depends on the effectiveness of the implementation, and on the additional benefits that can be obtained by further leveraging the technology. In this book, the editors have assembled some of the world’s best research on ERP systems, with a view to providing a foundation for second wave improvements to enterprise systems. Written primarily for managers and consultants, this book is also an ideal reference for business schools and researchers.

• A unique guide to extracting the best out of ERP systems • Covers the latest developments in the field • Collects together the best research on ERP systems

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
