The 7 circles of SAP project delivery hell - Why system changes are slow, clumsy, and every sane person’s worst nightmare

Let’s be honest: you need changes to your SAP system like you need another hole in the head.

Your business users expect a lot in a little time. But your resources and tools are far from up to the job. So your change processes are:

• Manual
• Slow
• Linear
• Inefficient

This slideshare is about the Seven Circles of SAP system change Hell – but more importantly, it’s about a different way of delivering SAP projects. One that speeds up every change, saves you resources, and makes your project a lot safer – and less painful.

Take a look.
