As he starts his 48th year in IT, Robert Girouard is releasing his book, Evidence-Based Methodology for Selecting Software Packages, which he wrote during the 34 years he worked as a consultant. In his book, he dissects the selection process and the procedure for implementing an integrated human resources and payroll management system in full detail.
Numerous mandates related to the selection and / or implementation of human resources management software afforded him opportunities to cover their main components. He applied his methodology to both the definition and documentation of business requirements, as well as the evaluation and selection of solutions (OOTB Package) and suppliers.
During these years in information technology and business, he successfully managed ERP projects, such as SAP, ORACLE, VIP by DLGL and Microsoft Dynamics, often working in multi-project mode. He provided dynamic support to his customers and facilitated transitions through effective change management. He has successfully completed mandates as a facilitator between the various internal departments (IT and business) and external suppliers, aiming for coordinated interaction and achieving a smooth consensus.
Focusing on success, his methodology has given him credibility through collaboration, commitment and integrity. Evidence-based methodology is in line with the new approaches required.
“In 2005, when preparing the Système d’information en gestion des ressources humaines (Human resources management information system) course, only 12 reference volumes existed and most were in English. As teachers, we had no resources that included all of the phases in a single volume.
Thanks to Robert’s book, we now have a proven phase-based methodology. Whether the reader is a student, business executive, director or buyer in a human resources department, he will find that this book describes very rigorous and detailed processes. The secret to the success of this book lies in demonstrating the theory of proof. Following this methodology, your project will stay on course. “
