a Wholesale Distribution Company
a Wholesale Distribution CompanyA big client was in the midst of incredible change. Within the same year, this large wholesale distribution company acquired their major competitor, dissolved their relationship with their former parent company and started deployment of SAP across their business. They turned to us to lead the SAP change. Our team identified impacts to the organization. Then we designed communication and executive sponsorship to mitigate those impacts and created business readiness teams. We also facilitated ongoing dialogue between the project team, the integrator and the business. Our team forged a partnership with human resources, IT and other departments -- creating a stronger project, surfacing data governance issues and ensuring a series of successful deployments.

Our work included mapping business processes, developing change leaders, fostering global sponsorship and creating culturally attuned communications -- all to prepare those who fuel NetApp sales to transition successfully to their new tool.
