Project Approach
   As a global company, we have a critical mission to
    undertake: we must successfully meet the rising
    challenges and complexities of business world.
   To get there, we need an integrated system that delivers
    the right blend of functionality, flexibility and
    technology.
   Moreover , we need a comprehensive solution that
    optimises and supports all of our global business
    processes.
   To achieve this goal we need:
     • a reliable strategy to analyse our business
       operations and new opportunities and
     • an integrated information system
Project approach
Case studies show that most of the successful SAP implementations are
business-driven from start to end
Differences between IT-driven and business-driven SAP implementations

    IT-driven implementations                            Business-driven implementations
                                                         • Reengineering of business
 • Replacement of old IT systems                           processes in alignment with
   that are difficult to maintain and                      corporate strategy
   support                               Rationale for   • SAP regarded as an enabler to
 • Increase accuracy of data              using SAP        change the way the business is
                                                           run
 • SAP regarded as an IT solution
   to all business problems                              • IT structure and business
                                                           processes are aligned

                                                         • CEO
 • CIO
                                         Key decision    • Senior management, including
 • IT department
                                         makers during     IT manager
 • Today’s IT users define system       implementation
                                                         • Requirements based on future
   requirements and architecture
                                                           business needs

 Successful companies realise from the start the importance of business-driven SAP
 implementation and secure that the business focus is never lost throughout the process.
  Project approach
         Complexity drivers for multi-site, multi-national SAP implementations

                                                              Complexity drivers
                                     • Global business issues
                                        – Global data standards
                                        – Global/standardised processes
                                        – Global products
Multi-site, multi-national
 SAP implementations
                                     • Geography and cultural issues
                                        –   Cultural differences between international sites
                                        –   Communication challenges and local acceptance (buy-in)

                                     • International team structure and project organisation
                                        – Internationally balanced teams
                                        – Distributed support over regions
                                        – Coordination of rollouts in multiple countries


                                     • Diversity within regional IT systems in use
                                        – More complex configuration management
                                        – Variations in regional IT infrastructures
                                        – Difficult definition process for standardisation through multiple
                                          viewpoints


 The complexity increases significantly for global SAP implementations - putting many potential
 pitfalls and risks on the map to project success.

Implementation Approach
   The term ”rollout project” refers to the process of
    repeated activation of one or more templates.


   The main effort during the Business Blueprint phase
    will be develop global template
   It’s possible that some business processes will be
    optimised during the project, due to better practice
    either in PLIVA Krakow or PLIVA Lachema


   One of the areas in which there can be no SAP
    standard is the motivation for collaboration between
    local and global levels

Implementation Approach

   Global – A process is global when it is integrated
    throughout the enterprise

   Standard – A process is standardised if it must be
    executed in the same way in the enterprise

   Local – A process is local if it is not possible or it
    makes no sense to define as global or standardised
