Globally the IT business is worth more than $3 trillion, out of which a huge part is ERP projects. More and more of these projects are now being implemented in Emerging economies, like India. There are differences in the ERP project implementation between Indian Organizations and those in Western Europe. This paper investigates through case studies what are the differences between these two project implementation cultures. Some of the key insights are that Indian projects have more cross-functional teams as opposed to more focused teams in Europe, as also there being better & more detailed planning in European projects vis-à-vis Indian projects. Managerial implications of these differences are also discussed.
