Change & Communication Specialist SHARPER
 
You are part of the SHARPER Transformation, a major initiative shaping the future of Finance at our client. SHARPER stands for Standardizing, Harmonising, and Performing.
 
In SHARPER we drive End to End performance in European Finance, in order to deliver a measurable contribution to our client outcomes. We foster strong collaboration between Operating Companies. The scope of the change is large: multiple programs (e.g. Purchase to Pay, Record to Report, Order to Cash etc.) and projects with a different complexity and in different stages of maturity.
 
SHARPER achieves its ambition in three stages:

  • We start with Fixing the Basics in order to stabilise performance, reduce risk and achieve first results.
  • Enhance Productivity is about optimising and automating our processes. We catch up on market developments in process and IT optimisation.
  • To Enable Business Outcomes, we make optimal use of the data and knowledge that we gain through the harmonisation of our processes and through sharing our experiences. The insights that we gain by combining financial data with other data and applying advanced analytics, enable us to identify patterns and predict upcoming developments. This makes us much more proactive and agile.

 The overall transformation is led by a SHARPER Transformation team at our Head Office in Amsterdam, with a local Transformation team based in Krakow.
