The Ultimate Recipe for Your SAP System Transformation
Meet the Experts
⇨ To be considered, a transformation pitch needs a solid business case.
⇨ Think of your transformation like a cake.
⇨ Preparation is key, especially so you can avoid changing a running system.
In this article, you will get a step-by-step walkthrough on how to run your digital transformation, complete with helpful tips, pitfalls to avoid, and a roadmap of simple steps that will ensure the transformation meets your goals.
First, inspect the business case. It should have a good, solid, and hard TCO reduction. Watch out for hidden costs and add a good portion for the transformation project. Do not rely too much on soft or hidden benefits.
At second prepare a one-pager. Give your transformation a really cool and catchy name. Harden it by presenting it to colleagues, consultants, friends, and enemies. Get it the final polish by presenting to selected stakeholders and influencers.
Finally get the buy in and the support of the top-level management. Walk in their shoes: What will they tell in their next C-level dinner about it? Bring the name and this short story across. Take special care about their short attention span.
