As ERP Data Migration Lead you must have a natural ability to communicate clearly and effectively as this will be used daily, as the ERP system touches all aspects of the business and often requires process change for every site. It is important that this role be able to handle the interpersonal relationships with users at every site, who have mixed skills, and mixed motivations to help them through the change management process.
