Clear, consistent messaging and effective organizational change management are integral to the success of any large-scale transformation.
With the majority of the world’s largest public companies, the Forbes Global 2000, using SAP in some capacity, organizational change leaders have likely fostered groups throughout an implementation. Companies may be centralizing their finance department, improving supply chain productivity, or SAP may be the system of choice as part of a merger or acquisition. There are many SAP applications, and the solution can be highly complex.
With any enterprise-wide change effort, it can be challenging to share a consistent message with all global stakeholders. As change managers know well, engaging leaders, facilitating site-level communications and engaging employees throughout the project are critical to its success.
