We will look atstatistics published from various studies, including those of the American SAP User Group (ASUG), to support the argument that OCM is an essential part of any SAP implementation. Acceptance by the End Users is a key contributor to the speed with which an organisation will receive a return on their investment in SAP and the business changes it brings.The discussion will focus on the elements of your Change Management approach which will lead to improved user acceptance.

Definition of a SAP ugrade from am OCM perspective will be presented by Alison Davies and Gordon Blake from SAP. This will discuss on the distinction between a 'full' (or 'Greenfield') SAP implementation, an SAP technical upgrade, and an SAP functionalupgrade. We will explore the change management aspects required for each of these 'upgrade' variations.

Paul Stevens and Jim Parish from Assima will provide a session on Can't Train Won't Train which will look at and discover how leading Professional Services giant KPMGsuccessfully rolled-out a business critical SAP business application to some 11,000 Associates, many of whom are high-value billable Accountants, Tax Advisors or Business Advisors - for whom the maxim "time is money" certainly holds true. In this fascinating Case Study, hear how a crucial mix of training services and unique software simulation technology and Electronic Performance Support Systems not only literally saved millions in revenue, but also provided a "Drive and Survive" belt and braces training deployment strategy.

You will have an opportunity to bring your thoughts, problems or questions for discussion with the group at the Open Forum Session.
