People act in disbelief when I tell them that I have rolled out SAP following a 2 month project plan. I have used this agile-like approach to roll out SAP to more than 10 manufacturing plants and distribution centers.
In this book, I have shared my methodology and approach to rapid implementations. I have shared examples of the detailed project plan and cut-over plan and much more. I have also shared my personal experiences successfully using this agile-like approach in more than 10 SAP implementations. This book is filled with tips & tricks used along the way. This book is not only meant to be a step-by-step handbook to a speedy ERP implementation, but it is also designed to be a reference guide so you can easily refer to sections that apply to a particular stage of a project.
I decided to write this book when I realized that the SMART Approach process is repeatable. I was leading a project team following this process and it dawned on me that I was the only one on the team that had done it before. That is when I realized that it was not just an excellent SAP team that made this possible. It is the process itself. It is also how you motivate the team and get business involvement and ownership of the project.
I sincerely hope you make good use of this book. I would love to hear about your projects. Enjoy.
