YOUR FUTURE ROLE

 

As a member of the SAP Ariba Consulting organization, you are involved in transforming businesses through the implementation and use of the leading cloud procurement solutions of SAP Ariba.
 

Business Process Consulting
As the lead consultant (f/m/d) on a project, you guide customers through the lifecycle of an SAP Ariba implementation. You support the blueprinting process, gather customer requirements and lead the design workshops leveraging best practices.

You lead the final configuration of the solution and provide the customer with guidance on user acceptance testing and support in resolving issues/defects.
You have expert knowledge on SAP Ariba solutions and best practices. You leverage this knowledge to ensure that a high quality solution will be deployed that will bring value to the customer business, will be easy to use and easy to maintain. You know that you can only achieve this if you collaborate closely with the customer team and build constructive and positive relationships with all key stakeholders.
During the deployment, you provide progress information and escalate project issues to the project manager to help ensure deliverables are on time and within budget.

 

Project Stream Responsibility
Depending on prior experience, you can take on more responsibility on projects. This could include leading a stream, multiple streams or a complete project.
As a stream lead or project manager, you are responsible for achieving sound, high quality deliverables on time and within budget. You can manage the client relationship and influence opinions and decisions. You strive to meet quality standards to achieve high customer satisfaction. Internally you provide timely project communication and facilitate regular status meetings. You deliver project cost and revenue forecasts.
