A company’s most vital activities often need to be their most versatile. Customer engagements, supplier collaboration, and project coordination are all examples of activities that must frequently adapt to changing business conditions. What if you could transform these activities into a competitive advantage? Consider the case of global consumer product companies that launch hundreds of different products and variations each year. “Product Launch & Re-Launch” is a strategic capability for these companies for fostering innovation and introducing new products to market quickly.
Bringing velocity and agility to this function is a key competitive differentiator for increasing market share and top line revenue. Join Arunkumar KS of Unilever India and Liladhar Bagad of Intelligroup, an SAP Services Partner for an in-depth discussion about how to achieve this agility and velocity, and how you can sharpen the competitive edge of your enterprise with a business process management (BPM) Program and SAP.
