Sinnvolle Einführung von Ivalua - Source to Contract Implementierung

- Ariba wird abgelöst

- Implementierungspartner stellt SAP MM Berater

Project description:

The project will implement the Ivalua modules Souring, Contracts, and Supplier Management within the Uniper Procurement organisation, following the existing Uniper-specific Source-to-Contract processes. Depending on implementation progress the modules Program Management, Issues Management & Collaboration Plans will be implemented as well. The implementation will cover all countries within the functionally steered Uniper Procurement organisation: Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, UK.

To manage the project dependencies on Uniper side (staff, deliverables, needed decisions, timeline) in relation to this implementation project, Uniper is looking for an external resource with project manager skills that has experience with these particular implementation projects at Procurement and is familiar with strategic sourcing tools like iValua nd Ariba.

Such a person is not available internally at Uniper for this project.

Therefore, The external resource has a unique position compared to the Uniper internal staff involved in the implementation and provides significantly different services than the Uniper internal staff, as the Uniper internal staff is focused on providing Ariba customization and run services only.

Task description - The scope of services includes the following tasks, which are performed independently:

- Project planning, tracking, documentation in close coordination with our external implementation partner. This includes creating a project plan based on own experience and expertise and based on the specifics of this project which will be provided by Uniper in advance.

-Execute project meetings

-Coordinate engagements and decisions based on own expertise and based on in advance provided input from Uniper

-Coordinate the sign off's to be made by Uniper in context of this project within the (in advance) agreed implementation timelines. The implementation approach is a "functional lift & shift", which is based on the existing Ariba Sourcing/Contract/SLP installation and its interface into SAP R/3 MM for supplier master data. However, the benefits of the Ivalua solution will be made available to the Uniper Category Managers. · Uniper Procurement is engaged within the implementation with the Sourcing, Contracts, and Supplier Management module owners, and local Procurement representatives.

- As an essential part of the implementation, create the training concept for the Uniper Procurement organization. This includes developing and actually realizing such training concept as part of the project. Develop the concrete setup (frequency and participants) of the trainings within the project and create training material based on own expertise and input coming from Uniper.

-Attend regular project (sprint) meetings

-Track project execution (of the internal as well as by external implementation partner) against project timeline. Steer the project team to meet the timelines, escalate to Uniper if necessary.

-Prepare and discuss Uniper deliverables based on own expertise and input coming from Uniper stakeholders (in the meetings)

-Coordinate decisions and sign off's with respective (module) owners and other internal stakeholders. Timely handover to the external Implementation partner.

-Prepare project steering board meetings

-Steer the implementation with the goal of a full adoption of the implemented Ivalua modules by the Uniper Procurement Category Managers. To achieve this, management of change is a key success factor throughout the implementation and the full Procurement organisation. For this, communicate and get information from Procurement and other relevant Uniper departments (full list of stakeholders below).

Such project meetings will take place either during physical meetings (mostly expected to be held in Düsseldorf), online meetings with the respective colleagues from the above mentioned countries with the various identified stakeholders (either per email, phone or teams (chat) meetings. We so far identified following stakeholders:

Uniper Procurement;

- Core Project team at Uniper, consistent of the Module owners (3 FTE)

- Chief Procurement Officer

- Head of Procurement Solutions

- Head of Procurement Management

- Head of Digital Solutions

- Lead Procurement Solutions Excellence

- Head of Performance & Culture, Deputy head of P & C

- Nominated "key users" from various teams (nominated to be involved in particular aspects of the implementation project (e.g. certain module, add-on, Interface, roll out strategy, training)

- Respective assigned Country coordinators at Procurement

Uniper IT:

- IT (responsible IT team from Corporate IT department

External parties:

- Implementation partner (already selected by Uniper)

- Vendor for SaaS Strategic Procurement tool (already selected by Uniper)

- Meetings per default will take place online and are complemented by larger onsite meetings (mostly in Düsseldorf).

- Document the implementation planning, status, risk management within a dedicated Microsoft Teams team. Further standard O365 tools are used. The documentation created is the base for the definition of the Agile sprints in the relevant dedicated meetings as well as for the milestone evaluation.

- Risk management - identify and manage risks. Early detection of deviations from project plan, root cause analysis, management of deviations (?go to green?). Steer the project team in order to solve the devotions or escalate to Uniper when deemed necessary by the consultant.

- Supplier management (our external implementation partner and our software vendors).

Uniper provides all necessary information, access to the systems and requirements in advance.
