Case 1: Keda's SAP Implementation: The following questions should be answered in your paper:
1. What are the key case objectives (i.e. why did the author(s) write the case)?
2. ERP projects are expensive and risky. Why did Keda decide to embark on an ERP implementation project?
3. What were the main challenges faced by Keda in each stage of its ERP project? What factors contributed to the project's success in the face of these challenges?
4. Leadership plays a pivotal role in the success of ERP projects. Which "leadership practices" did the Keda managers engage in?
