It is intended for C-level executives, reflective managers and consultants, and those with an academic interest in change and transformation.The BTM was developed by the Business Transformation Academy (BTA) which is a think tank operating under the auspices of the Business Transformation Services of SAP. Business Transformation Essentials: Transformation programs are an increasing feature of global companies carrying out major change projects with high strategic relevance. These programs combine business and technical content bringing together management and information systems. Regardless of their form, they can deliver real benefits to an organization's bottom line. However, such complex endeavours are always affiliated with extensive interventions within the organization's business model, organizational structure, business processes, and enterprise architecture, and have significant influence on the corporate vision, strategy, culture, values, and even the entire value chain - elements on which an organization's long-term success strongly depends. Using a variety of case studies, this book provides unprecedented insights into characteristics of current transformation programs and their potential benefits.
