  9. 9. © 2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 15 SuccessFactors BizXWhat if we better understand the Flow of People at SAP? …We could show our internal talents a much broader range of realistic and proven paths for professional development and career progression at SAP and in this way promote triple career pathing. … We better understand the internal flow of talents and could think what to do to increase the number of key positions filled successfully internally …We could identify critical patterns that more often than not result in less successful internal movements, analyze the route causes and probably define actions to improve selection (match-to-job) and/ or improve onboarding to increase sustainability Currently our focus in communication and supporting career planning/ pathing is on movements within or job families, real life teaches us many people move between functional areas. …We could tell Early Talent that once they join SAP “they don´t need to change when they are up for a change” and contribute to a strong Employer Branding towards Milleniums

People who move out of Development rather join Pre-Sales & Sales (50%) than Consulting (30%) 20% of people moving from a Development function into a Marketing function other than “Solution Marketing” have left SAP within 12 months after their move or had performance ratings below “meets expectations” We are facing a paradigm shift in Marketing (pull vs. push, social marketing) and a change in the regional/ solution focus. With these changes ahead can we assume the same numbers for internal supply for Marketing in the future coming from Sales & Pre-Sales? Potential Impact Dimension of Flow of People Analysis Example of Findings Considerations / Follow Up Actions What can we do to increase the flow into Consulting roles from the internal workforce in Development? As also sales/ pre-sales people travel mobility cannot be the only hindering factor. Understand from Marketing perspective of Marketing more inclusion of talent from Development is desired, if so consider related actions to support onboarding/ improve selection and consider alternative ways to support inclusion e.g. job rotation/ fellowships.
