The SAP ERP application has the potential to transform your business. But getting the best possible return on your software investment ultimately comes down to several things including the strength of your implementation team, business user ability, and how well managers and executives understand what the software can do. The likelihood of a successful implementation increases dramatically when your team is committed and excited to learn how to use the software. But instilling this excitement can be a challenge.
Research shows that traditional training methods focusing on transactions and keystrokes aren’t as effective as experiential, hands-on learning practices. To take full advantage of the power and potential of SAP software, your business needs to be engaged and invested in the learning process. The SAP ERP Simulation game by Baton Simulations offers your organization a proven way to get new users to accept SAP software. It also helps existing users increase their understanding of the software so they can use it more effectively and collaboratively in your organization.
As a hands-on learning game, SAP ERP Simulation is played in a classroom setting, in teams, on a live instance of the SAP ERP application. The interactivity of the game encourages your learners to work together to achieve true collaboration during the execution of enterprise business processes.
Here is how the game is played: Throughout the game, participants interact in the software to demonstrate how their individual contributions impact other parts of the business. For example, one team member prepares a forecast and orders raw materials. To do so, they access screens and transactions relating to independent requirements and material resource planning. At the same time, another team member adjusts pricing and makes marketing decisions based on sales data, and market intelligence, that is being monitored by a third team member. Your learners will see that the best results require not only great individual execution, but great teamwork.
During the course of the game, team members will:
- interact with suppliers and customers by sending and receiving orders,
- manage inventory levels,
- document the production and delivery of products,
- manage cash flow, and
- make decisions about marketing, plant, and distribution-system improvements.
The game accelerates participants along the learning curve. It also generates tremendous motivation among business users, executives, and project teams.
After playing the game, participants report:
- significantly increased skill,
- more positive attitudes,
- greater confidence in their ability to master software transactions and reports, and
- stronger belief in the potential of SAP software to add value to the enterprise.
In short, they are ready to go — with enthusiasm, understanding, and positive expectations. Positive attitudes and adequate preparation can reduce your organization’s training and support costs while shortening the ramp-up time for new users. The game provides deep learning embedded in engaged doing — with results that help your organization achieve the best possible return on your software investment. Ultimately, SAP ERP Simulation adds value to your enterprise by helping business users leverage the power and potential of SAP software.
SAP ERP Simulation is a classroom based competitive business game, played in a live SAP environment. It provides a compelling way for the learning 2.0 generation members of your workforce to harness the power of SAP solutions in their day to day activities. SAP ERP Simulation can be purchased two ways:
