Let's Get Started?

Starting the Change Management in the ERP Project

  • Non-Binding Inquiry
    Change management, as the name suggests, takes place in conjunction with a change project. For example, when introducing/upgrading software. It does not stand alone. Typically, companies request an ERP project from us and also seek assistance in change management. In your inquiry, you tell us about your project or the challenges you face.
  • Inquiry Qualification
    We’ll review your inquiry. If we’re confident that we can assist you, the process continues: We’ll typically contact you promptly to gather some additional information so we can assign the right point of contact to assist you.
  • Initial Consultation
    You have an appointment with one of our experts. In an informal, initial discussion, you’ll get to know each other, and both parties have the opportunity to assess if there’s a good fit. Additionally, we’ll discuss your project in more detail and explain how we can specifically assist you.
  • Presentation
    After our experts have thoroughly acquainted themselves with you and your project, typically, a presentation session takes place. We’ll introduce you to our company and our project methodology, and if necessary, show you relevant areas in the software.
  • Workshop
    Following that, a workshop is conducted. During this session, we discuss in detail mutual questions and expectations, and we explore how we can implement your requirements in a standard-compliant manner (gap-fit analysis) while involving your team.
  • Rough Concept Including Proposal
    Subsequently, we document the results of the workshop in a rough concept and prepare a proposal for you. Upon signing the contract, the ERP project, including change management, begins.
