Organizational Change Excellence
GYR Technologies has a robust and well-established organizational change methodology that is a cornerstone of our service offerings. Our approach to change is one of integration into the project team. It is essential that our change consultants become extremely familiar with the design being developed and the business it will be deployed into, know each of the stakeholder and end user groups and their specific needs, and evaluate the readiness of each of the groups to absorb the proposed changes.
Within depth knowledge of these three areas, our team can develop a change and training plan that is tailored to each audience’s particular need. We advocate spending time in the field with your stakeholder and end user groups to immerse them in knowledge about how the project is progressing and the changes they should expect. Each of our consultants (regardless of discipline) is fundamentally grounded in organizational change principles.

SAP Method Overview
GYR Technologies has developed a Technical Implementation approach based on the industry standard methodology Accelerated SAP called SAP (Industrialised SAP). SAP takes the value that Accelerated SAP offers and adds extensions in a number of key areas.
Key enhancements to ASAP in SAP:
· Recognition that Testing is a distinct project phase (Integration Testing), separate and apart from Realisation “build”
· Early involvement of the Technical Development team, in terms of definition of development requirements during Business Blueprint
· Solution Manager driven business scenario approach to process documentation
· Lifecycle Data Management integrated throughout the project
· Project management activities and deliverables in GYR Technologies’s Unified Program Methodology (UPM) based on both a combined PMBOK and CMMi approach augmented with LEAN visual management approaches
· Template based Business Process Models; and
· Additional templates to standardise work
SAP Design by Exception and Business Process hierarchy
GYR Technologies has developed an approach which delivers the best from the SAP solution for local government, focusing on the ERP components which deliver the most benefits in the shortest timescales.
The starting point for the business process analysis and design is our standard ATLAS Local Government template solution. Our experience has been crystallised into the GYR Technologies Local Government Template, which has been developed using our experience from recent SAP implementations with Gloucestershire, Surrey, Dorset, Derbyshire and West Sussex County Councils.
GYR Technologies has commissioned its own ATLAS project to consolidate and harmonise the key elements of our local government SAP experience, maintaining a complete set of business process flow diagrams, processes and procedures for the optimum local government SAP solution. This solution has also been set up and configured on GYR Technologies’s own demonstration system, so that it is available to be used as the basis of any future local authority SAP projects. This provides a well-developed set of processes, roles and workflow framework.
You will have specific requirements at both corporate and individual services levels that will need to be addressed, and while for some of these will use the standard solution, for others there will need to be some specific, tailored design. GYR Technologies therefore proposes the following approach:
· You will establish a ‘design authority’ which will oversee the design architecture from the business perspective, manage a governance process to approve all changes and developments, and work with the GYR Technologies design team and client design resources to build the process and workflow requirements
· A review of all current processes, systems (manual or otherwise), with the express aim of understanding what existing processes will be replaced using the new standard solution and what needs to remain and be interfaced, integrated or otherwise accommodated to provide an end-to-end solution
Together with your project and services teams we will conduct a series of design workshops focused on how the implementation of new, standard processes may require changes to any remaining external processes. Together we will also design the processes, workflows and configurations that are required, using the standard solution except where a clear business case can be made to approve a deviation from the standard solution. This creates the process and workflow blueprint based strongly on the standard solution and also incorporating in the design those processes that sit outside the standard solution.
“Design by Exception” (DbE) is one of the key pillars of SAP methodology with the core objective to minimise the redundant efforts in designing the solution. Design by Exception considers the business exceptions specific to your industry and how to deliver these with minimum efforts whilst adopting wherever possible the standard functionality provided by SAP. Each exception needs to be justified with a clear alignment with the overall business case of the solution.
GYR Technologies has successfully adopted DbE as a natural component of SAP Method. This focuses on end-end business processes not limiting to the scope of software modules.. Implementing business process models supported by Solution Manager and standardising functional design documents to reflect the DbE method are an integral part of the process.
