    Pros

    Office Depot has very mature IT systems and processes and skilled/knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    This is not the place for an IT Project Manager. All the responsibility, influence, and impacting work resides with the IT Leads/Development Managers and the functional leads. They are the real managers who deliver solutions. Trying to actually learn something about the business or the way it functions is almost impossible. If you want to push paper, then join ODP as an IT PM.

    Advice to Management

    There are of course quite a few lessons learned from the direction that Office Depot has headed recently. The European and domestic sales tanked and Staples continues to gain ground on them as the superior office product supplier. In the IT area, they way overstepped their abilities to deploy a large ERP initiative that was under-resourced with an ever increasing scope. These are more symptoms rather then solutions but are the mistakes that management needs to deal with.

    The money is the best in this area.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Cancel simplify, get a clue, get rid of Odland and entrenched management, we need new ideas, cutting cost is not the answer.
