Five steps to SAP project implementation

Can you outline the steps for implementation? What are the first five steps a company should take before implementing...

SAP?

There are many steps on the road to a successful implementation. First of all, I would want to ensure that the project has solid support from the senior executive of the company. With this in place, a project management team can be secured to lay the foundation for a great project. This project management team needs to assess the current need and develop an initial scope of work, resource requirements, plan and budget. With this initial project information, funding needs to provided to move the project to the next step. This would involve recruiting additional project resources to develop detailed business requirements and a finite scope. Once the scope is clearly defined and agreed you can continue with your project methodology of configuration and development, testing, data conversion, training, cutover and golive!
