The highlight of day one was the breakout session hosted by Flextronics Vice President of Human Resources, Debi Hirshlag. She took the audience through a broad review of the company’s Workday deployment to date (now more than 100,000 employees worldwide) and discussed the teams learning through the process – from the composition of the project team to executive sponsorship and change management.
Flextronics’ Workday deployment stands alone as one of the most impressive accomplishments ever in enterprise SaaS – in terms of scale and also the pioneering nature of the project. For Flextronics a pilot effort in a specific region, such as China, can be larger than many companies’ entire employee population. So Debi and her team have built a rich set of best practices for deployment, while retaining a great deal of agility to meet the specific requirements or a given region’s business or cultural requirements. Those best practices are helping them accelerate their roadmap for global go-lives by about a year, and they’re already looking ahead to deploying additional functionality.
