Success story: Change Management
Implementing a new tool like SAP Success Factors, while replacing PeopleSoft, could represent challenges regarding training and adoption of new processes and ways of working. Even more, when the complexity is significatively increased by the volume of users as the project in this leading global retail organization headquartered in the US impacted over 200,000 people in Mexico and 40,000 in Central America. The initial scope were the HR processes, payroll and their enablers: it should be guaranteed uninterruptedly the payroll payment. In addition, the top management message was crystal clear: market best practices, few adaptations as well as challenging current business processes with openness and flexibility to rethink the way of working. Likewise, the project had a limited budget and under no circumstances could be delayed.
