Hello SAP Community,

Welcome to our ‘SAP S/4HANA Virtual Board Games’ !

In the traditional approach, our customers are bored to death by 1-way presentations & have a very short attention span, losing interest after the first 5 minutes & absorb not more than 25 % of the information presented in the session. There are no tangible take-always, more of a usual check mark activity meeting.

SAP S/4HANA Virtual Board Games Objective

Our goal is to add more smiles to our SAP S/4HANA customers by:

  1. Simplify SAP S/4HANA Solution Discovery, team-based interactive learning
  2. Easier SAP S/4HANA Business Value Identification, introduce value drivers, KPIs early in buying cycle
  3. Tangible Customer S/4HANA Roadmap & Customer Value Map, key takeaways after the workshop
  4. Improve Customer Relationship, promote teamwork, empathy & cross-collaboration with your customers

Questions to ask yourself? If your answer is YES, please continue reading our game blog:

  • Do you want to engage your CXOs/Business leaders to understand the WHY or Business value of SAP S/4HANA?

      Thank you Saurabh. It's very impressive for me to understand. I have question. Did you do this Review/Discovery Cards Game Approach with your Customers during Preparation step of Roadmap? or Explore step?

      Thank you Kyungmo, glad your liked it. The Cards game can be played in either phase & is flexible. The only pre-requisite being that the customer should have the LoB teams in place & resources assigned (preferable) so that inputs can be taken. The game can also be played only for the newly released scope items every quarter for education & awareness and initing deeper discussions. Use this to break the ice with your customers.

      In my opinion this should be done in discover phase. Explore phase will be too late for this. Any suggestions.

      Hi Junaid, yes you are right. We are seeing great pull from the customers & partners to use the game in the discovery phase for learning about the new innovations & check the relevancy of the capabilities at a high level. That being said, there are few existing customers who are also using the game in explore or later stages for re-evaluating their existing landscape & create innovation maps.  We are pleasantly surprised to see multiple use cases driven by customers. Please let us know how your customers use the Cards game in their organization.
