SAP Audit and Post Implementation Assessments

tutorialIt’s easy to forget that successful ERP implementations don’t end at go-live. If anything, it’s after the system is implemented that makes or breaks the success of the system. However, most companies fail to conduct a post-implementation audit to see how their ERP systems are fitting in with the business. Inevitably, there are going to be ongoing changes and adjustments to optimize the way the system is operating and to improve the way it supports your business. Therefore, conducting a post-go-live audit is very important. In particular, these audits should focus on three key areas:

  1. Baseline and post-go-live performance measures. Every ERP project should have a solid business case well before the system is selected or implemented. However, the only way to understand the level of ERP business benefits is to measure performance before and after go-live. It is important to establish baseline performance levels, then compare those to the performance levels after go-live. This will help identify areas of under-performance and opportunities for ongoing improvement.
  2. Identify ongoing training opportunities. No matter how well you’ve prepared and trained your employees, there will be a decrease in productivity immediately after go-live. The key is to minimize this drop and help them to eventually be more productive than they were before ERP. Post-implementation audits should explore areas where employees are under-trained or could benefit from ongoing training. This will help optimize the business benefits of your ERP system in the longer-term.
  3. Identify opportunities to improve business processes. Just because you have implemented ERP doesn’t mean that your business processes are going to be perfect. There are always going to be process inefficiencies and breakdowns that can be improved. By working with employees to identify process pain points and following this up with root cause analysis for these pains, you will identify opportunities to improve your processes and make them more efficient and effective.

Value-Focused Change Management

Changes in the IT infrastructure may arise reactively in response to problems or externally imposed requirements, e.g. legislative changes, or proactively from seeking improved efficiency and effectiveness or to enable or reflect business initiatives, or from programs, projects or service improvement initiatives.

I asked Shimon to develop a large scale business case that is vendor agnostic and provides the roadmap to success. I was very impressed with the process and the results – enabling me to make a powerful presentation to our board of directors. I got the approval for the largest IT project in our company’s history!
