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

  • 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.

        • 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.

  • Hi Saurabh – was the digital game released as planned?  Any feedback on using it in current COVID-19 colocation-constrained environment?  Thank you!

  • Hi Saurabh –  The Card Game is only in English?   We want use in LAC and  need it is available in spanish . What options could we have?

    Thank you!

    • Hi Ramos,

      Thanks for reaching out. We would love to support your team in LAC & work with you to translate the game in Spanish. Please send an email to s.choudhuri@sap.com.
