The onboarding process

Time-to-Value Onboarding in 4 Sprints

Sprint 1

Initial Setup & Goalsetting

In our first sprint we begin with a kick-off to generate joint understandings of onboarding goals and expectations. In this early onboarding stage, the Business Champion, the Sponsor and (optional) the Single-Sign-On (SSO) expert are required. By the end of the first week, the initial workspace set-up, including SSO, is completed and our support channels & resources are known.

Key Outcomes

  • Workspace setup (incl. SSO)
  • SAP LeanIX Support & resources known
  • Joint understanding of onboarding goals & expectations

Sprint 2

Data Mapping & Import

The second sprint is all about the data. Together with the Business Champion, the Technical Champion and the Data Owner/s we prioritize the data for the initial import and map your data to the SAP LeanIX data model. We also enable you to import the structured data into the SAP LeanIX Workspace.

Key Outcomes

  • Prioritization of data for initial import
  • Mapping of customer data to SAP LeanIX metamodel
  • Initial data imported

Sprint 3

Workspace Review

After getting the data into the system, we use the third Sprint to make sure that the data is analyzable and feeds into the key reports. This provides you with valuable first insights into your data. Additionally, the focus at this stage is on getting the workspace ready to later welcome pioneer users to SAP LeanIX in the upcoming sprints and to set up the dates for the user training.

Key Outcomes

  • Data analyzable and key Reports accessible
  • Workspace well-configured to welcome pioneers
  • User enablements planned

Sprint 4

Collaborative Advantages

In the fourth sprint we focus on building a SAP LeanIX community within your company and enabling the collaborative advantages of SAP LeanIX. Pioneer users are involved at this stage, and feedback sessions with them provide valuable insights for a successful roll-out. After reviewing again onboarding goals, Success KPIs and targets for the upcoming weeks and months are agreed upon.

Key Outcomes

  • Setup for sustainable governance
  • Start of building SAP LeanIX community
  • Agreed success KPIs, mid-term goals/roadmap and mode of interaction
