needs assessment overview
Needs Assessment Overview
  • The School Board of Broward County (SBBC) had acquired and planned to implement a number of modules of the mySAP suite. SBBC requested KPMG's assistance in documenting their existing business processes for the purpose of creating an RFP and providing bidders a better understanding of the environment at SBBC.
  • In addition, KPMG provided assistance in identifying gaps between these processes and the “vanilla” functionality as provided by mySAP.
  • Along with the needs assessment analysis, KPMG provided guidance for the creation of the Request for Purchase and assistance with the evaluation of the resulting proposal.

Organization Change Management

what is change management
What is Change Management?
  • A Planned Approach: The process of developing a targeted strategy to align people, processes, and technology changes in an organization.
  • Nimble: proactive, flexible, and reactive.
  • Customized: Tailored for Broward County Public Schools.
  • Proportional: Direct relationship between the change undertaken and the amount of change required.
  • Supported: Leadership buy-in is key.
  • Personal: Change is personal. In part, based on an understanding of stakeholders’ own impact from the implementation.

How is my job going to change?

It doesn’t really matter... I’m just going to keep doing it the way I’m doing it.

SAP? I’ll believe it when I see it.

What if

I can’t do it?

Training Methodology
training lessons learned
Training Lessons Learned
  • Training objectives should be tied to overall project goals
  • Training must be process-based and reflect BCPS’s business
  • Training design and development efforts must be tightly integrated with the SAP project core team
  • Establishing a strong training foundation promotes that training materials and processes can be easily leveraged for subsequent phases and implementations
  • Training logistics (facilities, scheduling, registration) need to be closely managed

BRITEBRoward’s Innovative Tool for EducationBRITE brings one business system to Broward Schools.

brite s vision and mission
BRITE’s Vision and Mission

Learn it and Live it !

Vision: One Business System for Broward Schools

Mission: Adopt best practices and involve end users to create one business system in SAP.

One Business System

why does broward need brite
Why does Broward Need BRITE?
  • Currently, the school system uses hundreds of spreadsheets and databases to track all of its information. To improve access to that data, simplify reporting, and operate more efficiently across the school system, we must streamline our many processes and systems into a Broward-wide system called SAP.
  • The technical support license for the current version of SAP is expiring in 2007. Upgrades must occur so that the SAP system remains supported.

BRITE is an investment in the future of the school system to give staff better data to make informed decisions.

when is brite coming
When is BRITE Coming?
  • We are currently in the design stages called Blueprint. In January, after Blueprint is completed, the project team will have more specifics on how the system will impact you.
  • Phase One is scheduled to roll out in the 2007-08 school year for hiring, payroll, training and events, budgeting, purchasing, and limited financials.
  • Phase Two is scheduled to roll out in the 2008 calendar year for additional budgeting and financial features, as well as grants and facilities.
  • Phase Three is scheduled to roll out in 2009 for maintenance and transportation, focusing on replacing the current work order and inventory systems.

BRITE is a phased three-year project with first roll out planned in 2007.

The success of BRITE will rely on ongoing feedback from end-users throughout each phase.
