How I became an SAP consultant? I came to SAP world from the business side. Let me explain…
In 1987, I graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from Concordia University. My first job was as a Production Planner. I had a spreadsheet with inventory data. I manually updated the spreadsheet with Goods Receipts and Shipments each day.
Once a week, someone from IT would input the data into a PC and print an updated spreadsheet. I would quote delivery based on the inventory levels. I knew there had to be a better way.
In 1996, I wrote a term paper on SAP while completing an MBA at McGill University. I was working for a company that implemented SAP.
In 1997, I applied for a job at a small SAP consultancy and was hired. I completed SAP Partner Academy in Materials Management in late 1997.
The rest is history!
