Change and Training - The benefits of placing a team v's individual

Posted on January 2020 By Speller International
benefits of placing a team vs individual

As the first month of 2020 comes to an end, Speller has already seen a lot of movement in the SAP job market.

This movement makes it clear that we will see growth in the Change and Training space. As a result, organisations that are looking to implement SAP and upgrade their systems, have the end-user front of mind and as such are making sure to bring in people to manage the Change management and Training when the system goes live.

At Speller International we are often engaged to provide a team for SAP Change and Training. However, it is not uncommon to be asked to engage a single resource to help get a project across the line.

So, the question is, should you provide an entire SAP Change and Training Team or should you hire a single resource? In this blog we discuss the benefits of both.

Full Team:

With providing an entire team there is one source. In fact, we will often look at engaging an SAP Change and Training Lead we have worked with prior. This way we can develop a known and trusted team around this resource and allow the client to focus on other aspects of the business

Clients can build a good network in the SAP Change and Training space and can utilise this team as it suits them

No stepping on each other’s toes
By providing a trusted team the client can expect less risk of confusion on assigned roles and training sessions, and less inconsistencies in delivery and misaligned messages

Good consultants come with a wealth of knowledge and vast networks

Clients’ are provided with a solid resource for future projects if they move onto another company. They also have built a strong foundation with the recruitment agency that they can take with them from job to job

A successful team will be able to complete a project quicker and ideally within budget


An individually placed resource can save money for the project

One person is a lot easier to manage than an entire team

Less distractions
It’s easier for an individual to concentrate and work faster if there is no team to distract them

This means that the client doesn’t have to worry about consultants butting heads or not getting along.

Whether a team or an individual is required for a project comes down to the clients’ preference and the stage of the project. However, at Speller International we have found when we are engaged to provide a complete Change and/or Training team, the outcome is always positive and one in which we certainly are passionate about providing.

If you have any queries regarding Change and Training and resources required to complete a project, please do not hesitate to contact Speller International.
