Chevron is on a digital transformation journey, kicking off 2021 with an agile deployment of central finance: SAP Fiori and SAP S/4HANA. This central finance platform lays the foundation for the future of conducting finance digitally. In this session, hear how this transformation began and defined a minimum viable product (MVP), as well as key lessons learned on this journey of many firsts.
Discussion highlights include: the necessity of data standardization for reporting across the integrated organization, the significance of an achievable MVP, and the culture change required to adopt new ways of working and evolving technologies.
- It’s a data centric journey—data collection, cleansing, and consolidation with central finance is accelerating reporting capabilities to better enable business decision making.
- Your MVP and definition of success will provide focus in this ever- changing world—achievements made in spite of COVID-19 and organization transformations; benefit realization will be a journey (business simplification, agility and innovation, and cost reduction).
- It’s less about technology and more about people—culture shift to an agile mindset to work in different ways, build organizational capability, and promote adoption.
