Requirements for SAP Consultants

  • Are they qualified, capable, and able to uniquely add value?
  • Are they making good eye contact and comfortable presenting?

Additionally, we recommend that you ensure your candidates have already passed two tests created by SAP (Pre-Sales group application and an e-learning/soft skills test)

  • They have reviewed and been tested on 14 eBooks covering Discovery Foundations and Best Practices.
  • They have reviewed and been tested on 9 eBooks covering Demonstration Foundations and Best Practices.

Additional recommendations to vet your SAP talent include:

View their SAP Industries

SAP goes-to-market in 25 different industries. Helping customers grow and adding business value requires knowledge of their industry and the cross-industry value chain in which they operate. Ensure they have identified the sectors in which they have direct experience and a thorough understanding of the industry terminology and industry-specific business processes.

  • View their SAP skills and product
  • Ensure consultants have accurately and thoroughly identified the level of SAP solution knowledge they posses.
