Esad Kokić

Abstract


The research investigates barriers while implementing Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP) in higher education institutions (HEIs). A significant dataset of primary data is collected at private HEIs in the Bosnia&Herzegovina (B&H) region of the Canton of Sarajevo. The qualitative variable analysis is used to examine the factors of the ERP implementation. Results indicated that among nine variables each representing a barrier for implementing ERP, only the Difficulty of cross-functional coordination barrier was not an impediment. Top barriers, on the other hand, were Constrained comprehension, Lack of Organizational Leadership, Insufficient education and training of employees, Inadequate strategy and strategy not formulated in the strategy map. This study offers a Postmodern ERP Multi-Layer Implementation Model (PMLIM), to outline the factors in two dimensions, i.e. postmodern ERP and higher education institutions (HEIs); across three layers of organization, at the user, department and organization.
