SAP Continuous Improvement Program

Are you getting the most value from your SAP investment?

When companies implement SAP software, they are making a significant investment of time, resources, and money. Yet, many organizations believe that they don’t need to do anything else once the software has been implemented.

SAP systems offer world-class solutions, capable of providing tremendous insights into your business and enabling more intelligent decisions. Unfortunately, most companies don’t get the full benefits of SAP software. They don’t understand the capabilities of their solution, aren’t up-to-date with the latest software, or the solution hasn’t been aligned with their business objectives.

We want you to be able to get the most value from your SAP investments. That is why we’ve developed a Continuous Improvement program comprising two offerings.

SAP Health Check

A review of your SAP landscape

During this 90-minute session, our experienced consultants work with you to review your use of a specific SAP module, including pain points, training gaps, manual workarounds, reporting gaps, and wish lists.

We’ll also review your targets and top key performance indicators (KPIs) to prioritize action items to help you meet your strategic goals. The workshop’s output is a written report containing prioritized recommendations that you can consider to better leverage your SAP system.

SAP Value Assessment

An in-depth review of your SAP solutions

On average, each SAP Value Assessment takes 8 business days to complete. Based on your organization’s needs, the Value Assessment will be conducted by one of our senior consultants – individuals with extensive experience implementing, tailoring, and upgrading SAP solutions and processes for companies just like yours.

4 Key Pillars of a Value Assessment

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Reviewing, baselining, and benchmarking KPIs

Technology
Reviewing current technologies being utilized, issues, and opportunities

Process
Reviewing processes, conducting staff workshops, and job shadowing

Reporting
Reviewing current reports, gaps, and opportunities for improvement

As a part of this service, we can help you conduct an in-depth review of the value you’re getting from an individual SAP module or your entire SAP footprint. If you would prefer to focus on addressing opportunities one pillar at a time, we can modify our approach accordingly.

Theory of Constraints

From performance benchmarking to extensive process and capability roadmap development, our team works with you to focus SAP customizations on the areas that matter most to your business. Our methodology leverage the ‘Theory of Constraints’ (TOC) management philosophy developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt, to help you differentiate the thing that must change from the many that can change.

A closed-loop cycle provides a feedback process and ensures ongoing improvements are in place.

  • Targeted performance improvement of operational metrics such as reliability, speed, and working capital
  • Current state and future state development, including a roadmap
  • Business case development
  • Value realization benchmarking
  • Change management

We help you create customer-centric experiences with human insight and Design Thinking Principles and add value at various stages of your technology lifecycle.

  • Before the implementation, you can determine the scope and approach parameters for the project.
  • After the implementation, you can check where value has been realized, and identify untapped potential.

The Theory of Constraints is powered by Illumiti, a Syntax company.
