I’m on a big simplicity riff at the moment. We need to get a lot better at doing the simple stuff at SAP, hence my interest in design and UI, and my rantings about over-enterrpiseyness complexity.
Today though, I’m going to point to a big, complex project.
On the 25th July I’ll be listening to this webex.

Join FCW and SAP for this 60-minute webinar with guest speaker Steve Monteith, Executive Director, Human Capital Enterprise, United States Postal Service
Hear first hand how the U.S. Postal Service is transforming its human capital management processes and technologies to enhance services and productivity while maintaining a sharp focus on employee needs. By combining SAP system solutions with highly trained human resource personnel working in a shared service environment that is supported by an integrated technology infrastructure, the Postal Service is reducing administrative costs, significantly strengthening data management capabilities and improving overall efficiencies. Learn how this endeavor will ensure ongoing high quality, employee-centered personnel services well into the future.
Driving change in an organisation of this size and complexity is a daunting task. US Postal has 700,000 employees, 7 million customers a day and operating revenue of 68,5 billion dollars.
The lion’s share of this success should go to USPS. Andrew, I guess this is one of those correct but bland uses of INATT
The next someone says, “I don’t think SAP can cope with our organisation’s complexity levels”, I’ll point them to this recording. (Assuming of course that my colleagues in marketing put it somewhere where I can find it)
Michael, this may interest you too.
