Like unnecessarily fitting an old engine into a brand new sports car.
Even if you spend an enormous effort to implement SAP ERP, you could still be off the mark. Such so, that you run the risk that the end user community will be confronted with a solution that is not fit for purpose. True, these conflicts do occur in most implementation projects, but last minute changes could cause a problem.

ACME decided to upgrade their outdated ERP system. However, they made the mistake not to share the progress with the end user community. Instead the project team was hiding in their ivory tower. Sporadically communication was sent out to avoid rumours to spread throughout the organisation.
But damage control is difficult to sustain. Individual project team members were sharing details about the system design and the overall project progress. It did cause some confusion, as the official communication seemed to deviate from the information shared off the record.
As the time came to finally present the system for user acceptance, defects were logged almost instantly. As it appeared, the business requirements were either not translated correctly into the design, or changed over time. Unfortunately, the overall deployment was in danger. Quick assessment of the situation made clear that too many issues were identified. And few of them were very difficult to resolve without a complete redesign. So what should they do? Continue or start from scratch?
