The Art of Shaping the Future of Business with SAP

Art of Shaping the Future of Business with SAP

It may sound strange, but in my SAP business and integration role with Accenture, I view myself as an artist.

I take personal pride in shaping our clients’ vision of what an optimized Source-to-Pay ecosystem looks like—I actually feel a little like Picasso, creating a custom work of art.

A canvas of global opportunities
I serve as part of our North American SAP Sourcing and Procurement Practice leadership. I lead our efforts in creating a market of new opportunities in growing our sales and delivery footprint in the SAP Sourcing and Procurement space.

Every project I work on is exciting!

I particularly love projects that involve large, global enterprise clients. For me, it represents an opportunity to help shape their strategic direction and progress toward excellence in sourcing and procurement.

My typical day involves constant threads of collaboration regarding client business development opportunities, delivery challenges requiring some level of engagement and decisions about which to engage with directly and which to delegate via referral to other colleagues within the practice and across our networks.

It also involves a continuous schedule of calendar events, ranging from practice development, recruitment and talent management, partner collaboration (with SAP Ariba) and client commitment management.

Coming home
Our employee-centric culture is what I love most about Accenture. I appreciate having the ability to be in control of shaping my career, and the opportunity to continuously learn and grow. I take tremendous pride in working at Accenture; there’s nothing dull about what we do.

As an Accenture alum who returned to the company after leaving in 2007, many of the people I previously hired, mentored and worked with have progressed to new levels of career success—that’s something I take great pride in. It’s a testament to the culture, where learning and growing is encouraged.

Since my return, one thing has remained the same: Accenture’s culture and core values and commitment to diversity—in fact, the dedication is even greater than before.

Lead the world’s top companies into the New. Find your fit with the Accenture team.
