Industry / Function / Environment

  • Chemical Industry
  • IT/Change Management
  • Creating the prerequisite for digitalization
  • The greenfield implementation of SAP S/4 was about to be ordered.
  • There were insufficient resources in the existing organization to suitably launch and manage such a complex change project.
  • The hypothesis of the executive board was that this was not an IT project, but a change project, since the existing processes were supported in many cases with the very flexible Excel and were now to be converted to the very standardized SAP S/4.
  • A digitization strategy was developed and approved, which placed the topic of ERP SAP in a suitable context.
  • SAP S/4 was successfully put live according to the agreed scope and within budget.
  • No project-induced fluctuation in the 50-strong project team thanks to almost perfect project management via dashboards, meetings and accompanying change communication.
  • Austrian company in the chemical industry
  • 600 employees, 500 million EUR turnover
