Transformation Management (BTM) is the holistic management of extensive,
complex changes on which an organization's future success depends. BTM2,
which stands for Business Transformation Management Methodology, is a robust
new integrative approach, with an emphasis on the balance between the rational
and emotional aspects of transformation.
BTM2 shares two foundational principles with Organizational Dynamics, namely:
a holistic approach and a balance of process and behavioral perspectives.
This is a rare industrial situation that sees its business strategy inextricably
tied to these two principles. BTM2 also involves the five disciplines within
the UPenn MBA P3 concentration namely, Project Management, Program Management,
Project Risk Management, Portfolio Management and Business Process Management.
The BTM2 was developed by the Business Transformation Academy (BTA). The
BTA is an innovative think tank that manages an interdisciplinary Thought
Leadership Network operating under the auspices of the Business Transformation
Services of SAP. For the purpose of creating this holistic methodology the
BTA brought together 33 international thought leaders from various management
disciplines. The result is a “360-degree” view on what business transformation
means and how to manage it successfully.
On its Business Transformation Academy web site, SAP introduces BTM2 as “a
brand new meta-management discipline that incorporates the integration and
expansion of existing and previously separated management disciplines and
methods.” The BTM2 framework focuses on the management of the overall set
of disciplines within transformation management. The main driver for the
development of BTM2 is the need to have a common, holistic, and cutting-edge
approach to manage large transformation initiatives. It is a response to
the limitations of single methods and management approaches that have always
been adopted separately from each other.
Tim Hornung leads the CPG (consumer packaged goods) practice within the Industry
Business Consulting area, and is the lead for SAP’s Business Transformation
Academy (BTA) in North America. The BTA is the academic arm for SAP that
does industry research and owns the BTM2 (Business Transformation Management)
methodology. In past years Tim and his team have worked on other methodologies
around the topics of Enterprise Architecture and SOA, e.g.: Best Practice
Benchmark for Enterprise Architecture, Business Model Building Blocks, and
Business Model Heat Maps. Tim has held leadership and senior managerial
positions with extensive international experience with multiple expatriate
assignments, with a proven track record of building relationships.
