What she had to say

“It’s extremely important when taking on new SAP
integration projects that the decision makers talk to
the people in the trenches! Otherwise you end up
with unrealistic deadlines and shifting objectives. On
this new 3Com acquisition upper management wants
to see immediate savings on the books so we were
given only ten days to complete our due diligence
research and develop an integration strategy,
timeline and budget. It’s like shooting in the dark
which ultimately means the project manger has to
inflate the expected budget and pad the expected
timelines to ensure we’re able to meet senior
management expectations.”

14

Key Points of Interview


Need to involve staff at all levels
throughout the entire process


Review the processes before making
decisions


Proper planning will save money and
increase efficiency


even if you seem like
you’re getting nothing accomplished for
longer.


Change management tools are critical and
even though HP is a large company not
everybody
gets the tools they need
