This episode of SAP Experts Podcast is a full-circle moment for me. That’s because the very first episode I ever hosted, by myself, for SAP Experts Podcast was about gamified approaches being a game changer in business consulting and learning. In that episode, I discussed how SAP uses gamification to collaborate with our customers, while enabling Business Value Identification.

And in today’s episode, we revisit that topic, but this time we take the leap from theoretical to practical. Today we will talk about how the SAP S/4HANA Virtual Board Game simplifies the solution discovery, as well as the business value identification for our current customers and prospective customers. And not just that, but this gamified approach also provides useful, tangible outcomes to the players. 

Which is why, today, I am joined by the brains behind this gamified approach, Saurabh Choudhuri.

Saurabh has over 13 years of Sales, Presales, Consulting & Agile Coaching experience in the IT industry, across various global firms.  Saurabh joined SAP in 2011 as a “Management Intern” and during his tenure, has worked on many key customer facing projects like SAP ByDesign product launch, Ariba Sales and today, Saurabh is part of the SAP S/4HANA Go-To-Market & Solution Management, as the Sr. Global Director leading the Gamified SAP Value Discovery Experience track.

Saurabh also has an entrepreneurial spirit and has cofounded 2 .COM companies. He has an MBA from Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore and executive management diploma in Leadership & Strategy from Harvard Business School. On a personal note, Saurabh enjoys spending time with his 2 little girls & wife and trying local cuisines while travelling.

We are also joined by two returning guests Bill Bowers and Nabeel Siddiqui. Because a radical, innovative approaches like this one require leadership and teamwork to become a reality, which is what Bill, Nabeel and yours truly, provided.

As always, my name Akshi Mohla, and you’re listening to SAP Experts Podcast.
