SAP HCM Upgrade for British American Tobacco

I was the SAP HCM project manager and design lead in a SAP HCM upgrade project. I managed external teams, SAP UK resources, and internal IT resources to deliver a complex decoupling of the HR system from the SAP ERP instance.

This project involved working with stakeholders to determine the global HR system strategy for over 120 countries. It entailed moving four global regions and numerous SAP systems into a single SAP system. I organized the vendors' RFP selection process and managed the project across several geographies, with stakeholders, users, vendors, and various IT resources scattered across several countries and varying time zones. I also handled the project's IT budget and resources, performed quality assurance of the design and technical build, and managed a 3rd-party implementation team of 20 to deliver the functional and technical build of the project. I coordinated UAT and effectively managed end user training and knowledge transfer to the support team.
