Unlocking Sustainable Business Success : Leadership, Culture and Change Management

Great tools like SAP are meant to help improve the productivity of our teams. However, more than 70% of the time this is not the case. This is because people form the critical backbone of any process and the workplace culture is one of the major reasons sustainable success is not achieved according to research. People, their skills and work culture play a central role in order to be successful. As Peter Drucker once stated – “Culture Eats Your Strategy for Lunch”. This cultural challenge needs a counter effort by leadership if our goals must be achieved.

In this keynote, Jonathan will discuss how we can unlock massive gains when we unlock our people potential. The Trio of the Right Culture, Right Technology and Transformational Leadership would be at the centre of this discourse. To buttress these points, he will be sharing case studies where massive savings were recorded using these methods.

Winning With People: Lessons From The Shop Floor

World-class organisations are those that have mastered the art of harnessing the potential of their most important asset, their people. The opposite can be said of organisations that fall below par. Mostly the silent majority which makes up the shop floor dictate the success or failure of the Asset.

This presentation reflects on both aisles utilising case studies of existing entities and drawing learnings that are rooted in timeless principles of visionary leadership. It is a reflection of interaction and research in the last two years. Some of the excerpts in this presentation are unfiltered insights, providing a rare glimpse into the minds of the average Joe on the shop floor.

Digitising the ‘Devices’ Supply Chain at Microsoft

Late 2015, the business environment for Microsoft Devices, was one of Shortening Product Lifecycles, Increasing Customer Service Expectations and Pricing and Margin Pressure.

With Manufacturing and Supply Chain operations being a Virtualised and Distributed Supply Network, ageing processes and systems were no longer sufficient, and more importantly, not going to support improving; Speed, Agility and Scale, in a competitive Consumer Electronics marketplace – Digital Transformation of Microsoft’s Devices Supply Chain was needed.

This session will describe; the legacy imperative to change, and what and how the journey to Digitising the Supply Chain, was planned and executed, and the benefits achieved.

Microsoft Devices: Modernising Planning, Sourcing and Procurement, with IBP & Ariba – DMS + SCC

Building on; Digitising the ‘Devices’ Supply Chain at Microsoft, this presentation will drop down a couple of levels to describe the new ‘OS’ for the Supply Chain, embracing a backbone of SAP, with strategic ‘surround’ investments, all running in the Cloud.

Modernising Planning, Sourcing and Procurement, outside of SAP-ECC / SCM, became ‘core’, resulting in the decision to co-innovate Ariba Direct Material Sourcing, with SAP, implement Ariba SCC, and become a ‘first-mover’ to IBP.

We’ll discuss the systems journey and business benefits realised; e.g. partner onboarding cycle time reduction, forecast improvement and reduced order commitment time.

Manage Your End-To-End Supply Chain by Exception, By Leveraging Standard SAP Functionality – SAP Global Track And Trace

With the modern Supply Chain, we are dealing with larger volumes, disperse locations, varying technologies and ever-changing regulations – How could we ever be expected to provide an efficient, compliant and accurate Omni-channel user experience while keeping costs down? By ensuring that we identify exceptions as they occur and assigning resolution actions at that same time we can truly move our Supply Chain execution to one that is done through Exception Management.

I.e. Only manage those orders or shipments that have issues and let the system take care of the rest while providing real-time feedback to your customer on all order statuses. In this session, we will demonstrate just how SAP Global Track and Trace is provided by SAP as a cloud solution that provides the needed functionality to achieve this.

Collapse Your Procurement and Logistics Supply Chain Cycle Times Through A Reduction Of “Time To Insight & Action” Events

When a product leaves our 4 walls or the 4 walls of our supplier, do we know if the shipment is on track or not? How quickly are we made aware of any potential issues with the shipment? If we do not know there is an issue, then how can we address it? If we do not address it in an efficient and transparent way, then our customer’s experience and subsequent satisfaction will be negatively impacted.

In this session, Kevin will detail how to leverage several key technologies and communication standards to dramatically reduce “Time to Insight” – knowing that a problem has occurred and “Time to Action” – time take to launch corrective action. In addition, he will also demonstrate how end-to-end Supply Chain visibility can, and should, be provided to your customer. Leveraging these techniques has brought several Fortune 500 companies in the US great value and vastly improved customer satisfaction levels.

UX & Mobility – Navigating the Choice Overload… Mobility, SAP GUI, Fiori, WebDynPro, and Personas. Where to Begin?

SAP offers such an array of UI solutions that it can be challenging to know where to start. Precision spent a year evaluating UI and mobility solutions, undertook multiple proofs of concepts, and a full pilot in preparation for their S/4HANA implementation.

Mapping different UI and application needs to both field users and operations support staff was key in selecting the right solutions for the job. Numerous mobility options were considered; and from Personas, Fiori and WebDynPro, it is a perplexing choice, to say the least!

Lisa will share the key points from the journey, lessons learnt, and will demo the final product; a combination of Personas/Web GUI and a mobile application for users in the field.

Making the Jump To S/4HANA? One Size Doesn’t Fit All - A Story of Best Practice, Data, And Cultural Change

When Precision Drilling embarked on a greenfield S/4HANA implementation to replace a heavily customized legacy SAP, they adopted the guiding principle of standardising Asset Management master data and business processes across their global operations.

It quickly became apparent that what might suit one division might not suit all. With differing operating models across the organisation, there was a need to scale and adapt to achieve the changes required.

Sharing lessons from their S/4HANA implementation that went live in April 2018, Lisa will examine building scalable processes to adapt to variations in the operational model; how executive support and business engagement is critical to project success; the importance of master data governance to avoid pitfalls in data conversion, and preparing for change, then continuing to change post go-live.
