Many SAP projects use waterfall methodologies, but these often run into budgeting and scheduling problems. In this unique book, Sean Robson presents ways of improving SAP implementations and offers practical advice on the most effective way to see a project through from beginning to end. Basing his strategies on the twelve principles of the Agile Manifesto, and drawing on his vast experience, he particularly focuses on the use of Scrum and Kanban and their suitability for certain types of projects, enabling you to select the most appropriate method for the task in hand.

As you read this book, you will understand how to:

  • Bring your SAP projects in on time and within budget
  • Build more flexibility and transparency in to your implementations, enabling you to adapt more quickly to your clients' needs
  • Realize cost savings as you analyze your expenditure, reduce waste and increase efficiencies in the delivery cycle
  • Increase customer loyalty as you adopt 'best practice' in order to maintain consistently high standards
  • Work more effectively as you increase collaboration within the company and reduce the stress that so often accompanies large-scale projects
  • Improve clarity of requirements and eliminate unnecessary paperwork.
