The project approach developed by io and tailored to SAP projects has been harmonized with the SAP ACTIVATE project procedure. Our methodology is based on SCRUM. It was developed specifically for the requirements of an SAP implementation project with the expertise of our consultants. It delivers impressive shorter overall project runtimes and faster results. We reduce iterations and risks by identifying and implementing necessary and desired adjustments at an early stage, and make sure our clients always have an accurate overview of the project progress and status.
Our various collaboration models enable the involvement of client teams at the respective necessary stage to ensure effective knowledge transfer during the project. This is done either by way of full service, coaching, or embedded methods. Specialized tools are fully integrated in all project phases to ensure end-to-end traceability. We use various means to create the perfect balance of precision and speed for your project:
