As trainer Marcel conducted training sessions to end-users varying from employee (‘soldier’) to middle/senior management (‘petty officer’) in the usage of SAP (modules MM, SD, LES, PM, QM and DFPS) and in the new, integrated way of working within MoD.
Furthermore he developed new training material regarding MRP, demand planning, supply chain management, maintenance sub-contracting and DFPS and advices the command unit regarding didactics, e-learning and its internal organisation.
The SAP instruction group is a project organization of ca. 50 FTE and is foreseen to end during 2016. From his experience as change manager and his personal network within MoD, Marcel advices the responsible management in this transition and facilitates the MoD internal cooperation on the (future) SAP knowledge management.

Client: Philips IT Applications
January 2012 – August 2012
Role: Contract Manager
Philips IT Applications has over 1500 (internal and external) employees and is divided into various competence groups, all responsible for the manning and support of the IT projects.
In the role of Contract Manager, on behalf of Capgemini, Marcel was responsible for the assignment of the Capgemini SAP employees. At all times, guarding the balance between the interests of Philips, Capgemini and the individual employee was required. In this period, Philips switched to large scale outsourcing of its IT, which led to great uncertainty for the Philips employees and managers and made systematic handling of capacity requirements very difficult. In this dynamic environment, Marcel managed to fulfil the correct assignments. In addition, again on behalf of Capgemini, he was the delivery manager for four new tenders. These tenders fell under the new sourcing model at Philips, which meant that within the fixed price offers, cooperation was required with several sourcing partners chosen by Philips. Above all, Marcel became a respected sparring partner for the Philips Team leads and Delivery Managers. For them his vision on the position of ICT within an organization, his experience with sourcing and fixed price contracts and his insights into change processes turned out to have an added value. With the termination of the contract between Capgemini and Philips, Marcel’s role came to an end, too.
Client: Capgemini SAP Solutions
September 2011 – February 2012
Role: Marketing Manager (interim).
Marcel was asked by the management of the division SAP solutions to give a boost to the “push sales” of SAP services, especially outside the major Capgemini Clients. Therefore, Marcel developed 2 marketing campaigns: one aimed at internal Capgemini target groups (consultants and account management) and one aimed at external prospects. In addition, he also simplified and clarified the portfolio for “managed sourcing” (variable deployment of capacity in different contractual forms). At the request of the Sales Director, he initially assumed the role of campaign manager until a successor was found.
In line with this campaign, at the request of the Commercial Director, Marcel developed a training/workshop with the objective of enabling consultants (in non-commercial functions) to identify clients’ needs and to develop these (as commercial) opportunities. Marcel gave this training several times, until the Capgemini Resource Management took it over. The training was received enthusiastically both by the target group and Sales Management.
Client: Ministry of Defence
September 2010 – September 2011
Role: Change Manager / Strategic Advisor
The gradual transition of the program SPEER to the line organizations was supported by the newly developed organization: OBSS (Design, Construction and Support in Cooperation). In this temporary organization (2011 until 2013) of approx. 350 employees, the consortium (the BBF), SPEER Detail Development and the Defence IT Support Organization were integrated to realize the new projects simultaneously, to supporting and maintaining the SAP Kernel. This allowed the acquisition, transfer and transition of knowledge in a controlled, predictable manner. Marcel advised Defence regarding transition strategy, organizational design and its implementation.
On the request of Defence, Marcel took on the role of change manager within the OBSS at the end of 2010. In this role he focused on the further development of the OBSS organization and increasingly on the cooperation and broader transition within the entire SPEER program and the Defence line organizations. His main concerns here were:
• Design of new working procedures based on ITIL & BISL administrative procedures,
• The improvement of the cooperation between the different (market) parties, each with its own commercial interests,
• The organizational structure (based on Competence Centers) and the desired attitude and behaviour of managers and staff,
• The alignment of the program with the users, organization and the policy makers (represented in the process model management in formation),
• Collaboration & knowledge management strategy, process & tools and its implementation, based on SharePoint and various other tools like Wiki.
• Coaching of the OBSS management in the areas of leadership, SAP content aspects, working on a project basis and the impact of this, to them unfamiliar form of cooperation.
Per September 2011 Defence took over these tasks itself.
Client: Ministry of Internal Affairs
November 2007 – June 2008
Role: Trusted Advisor
Out of the BBF, the Logica / Capgemini consortium realized the initial SAP system (Finance, Inventory Management & Purchasing) for the ministry of Internal Affairs. The critical aspects in this project were:
• Speed. The projected needed to deliver within 6 months due to the fiscal year’s closing and the client’s scheduled rehousing;
• Security. The project needed to be executed with high demands regarding information security.
As the BBF fulfilled the MIVD security requirements (physical and procedural), it was possible to execute this project with the current staff. This way it was possible to deliver within time and according client’s business requirements.
Marcel advised the client’s project manager and security officer on the approach and implemented some mutual agreed changes to the BBF facilities.
He calculated and contracted this project on behalf of the consortium on fixed price / fixed date conditions (€1.7 Mio). Based on this he supported project management in starting up the project. After this he remained trusted advisor for the client’s project manager.
Client: Ministry of Defence
October 2005 – August 2010
Role: Change & Program Manager / Lead Facilitator
Within The MoD’s SPEER program Marcel set up the Building Block Factory, thus implementing the developed vision.
The BBF was an independent entity of the Logica / Capgemini consortium at a separate location which delivered products and services to SPEER in the form of SAP Building Blocks (Demand / Supply Model). Within the BSF, teams from The Hague (Defence), Rijswijk (Consortium), Bangalore (Logica India) and Mumbai (Capgemini India) worked together in a virtual manner on the further development and implementation of the SAP components. Facilitated (decision-making and accepting) sessions, based on Capgemini’s Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE) methods, were used structurally to strengthen the cooperation and acceptance. The project execution was based on best practices from Global ASAP and SCRUM within the project management framework of PRINCE2 and the architectural context and management criteria of Defence.
After positive decision of Defence on this method and organization, Marcel was responsible for establishing the organizational and physical structure (location, infrastructure, and resources) of the BBF.
In November 2005, on a fixed price (€ 26.6 Mio), fixed duration basis contract, the BBF began the realization of the first SAP Kernel. As a member of the four-man Management team, Marcel was responsible for productivity, method and organization of the BSF and the acceptance process of the products from the BBF. His tasks included among others: setting, starting and facilitation of offshore activities (in Mumbai and Bangalore), the cooperation with Defence (SPEER and IVENT programs), and the project management of the facilitated sessions, in which he also acted as lead facilitator. He was also resource manager for the approx. 100 BSF employees in the Netherlands.
In this period, Marcel also set up and organized the SAP solution architecture and integration management. The integral data streams over the various SAP modules (FI/CO, PSM, BW, MM, PM, SD, DIMP, AED & DFPS) and the financial/logistic integration played an important role here.
The first Kernel was delivered on time and within budget in October 2007, and was accepted by Defence. On the basis of a size determination of the design and in comparison to a “traditional” method, this Kernel was produced in half the expected lead-time.
From mid-2007, working with the relevant Defence project management, Marcel prepared the following phase of the program and supported its implementation. The tasks of the BBF were expanded with the detailed design of the next Kernel and the applications management of the first Kernel. Both were in collaboration with the Defence employees, of which some under the supervision of the BBF.
In addition to the tasks mentioned above, in this phase, Marcel was also responsible for the transfer of knowledge to the (future) applications managers of Defence, the management of knowledge with regard to SAP and the facilitation of various ASE workshops (up to approx. 100 participants). Marcel also became part of the contract management consortium and as such he developed the vision on ICT / ERP Direction, the future program organization and the application of SAP within the Defence operations.
Marcel worked on the launch and set up of the integral process architecture within ARIS and advised on issues such as the integration (functional and on data and document level) of SAP Transportation Management, an additional new SAP product that came in scope.
Mid 2010, in accordance with the plan, the dismantling of the BBF as a separate location began and the people, resources and methods were transferred to the SPEER program. Marcel was the project manager during this transition. With the start of the new organization ‘Design, Construction and Support in Cooperation’ (OBBS), the relocation of BBF employees and facilities to the SPEER program, this transition was completed successfully on time.
Client: Ministry of Defence
September 2004 – October 2005
Role: Strategic Advisor within Enterprise Architecture SPEER
The objective of the Ministry of Defence SPEER program is to modernize & standardize all the material, logistics and financial processes and support them with SAP. The program has a 10-year duration and is one of the largest ICT programs in the Netherlands. The Capgemini and Logica consortium supports Defence by directing the program, process design and the realization of the SAP Kernels.
In September 2004, Marcel was asked to give supportive advice to the Ministry of Defence on the methods and organization of SAP realization (Building Blocks development) for the first 5 years of the program, with the objective of delivering the SAP Kernels within the set parameters (in time and money). Within the architectural lines of Defence, Marcel drew up the ‘Vision on building blocks development’. This vision included high productivity through combined on-site, onshore and offshore development, from a purpose-developed organization: the Building Blocks Factory (BBF).
Information security was a critical element this vision. Part of the developments within SAP were scheduled be done offshore in India (Mumbai & Bangalore), so the security guidelines allowing this way of work were of great importance, especially since was new to the Dutch MoD. In close corporation with the MIVD (Military Intelligence & Security) Marcel developed and implemented these guidelines.
Another critical element was the fact SAP’s Industry Solution for the defence market (IS-DFPS) was not yet fully on the market and therefore knowledge, let alone experience, was very rare. This risk was addressed by involving international expertise from SAP and by taken redesign and incremental development into account in the project’s approach.
On behalf of the Consortium Marcel calculated both the project for the first Kernel and the 5-year execution of the Building Block Factory and drafted the fixed price/fixed date contract. Following this Marcel became part of the Consortium’s Management Team to execute these projects.

August 2001 – August 2004
Role: Change Manager / Manager ERP Solutions Center
In 2001, Capgemini set up the LEAP program, focused at improving her global productivity and profitability. In August 2001, Marcel was asked to roll out this program for the ERP Service Line in the Benelux, where in addition to the implementation of a number of tools and techniques, the change-related aspects (such as insight and attitude) also played an important role. This roll out took place across all sectors and (ERP) competences, with a total of approx. 1000 employees. Marcel reported back to both the International Program Manager and the Dutch ERP Service Line Manager. Although the roll out progressed according to plan, achieving the financial objectives (more successful tenders, higher profitability) required a structural solution. To that end, the Solutions Center (ESC) was established in May 2002, and Marcel was asked by the board of Capgemini Nederland, as ‘entrepreneur’ to get this new organization off the ground, to put it on the map (within and outside of Capgemini) and to manage the team.
The ESC gave support to increasing productivity in both the tender processes and ERP projects. This was done by applying tools, techniques and methods with a high level of standardization and knowledge management (SharePoint), the use of (offshore and near shore) centers with regard to both the realization of SAP (Advanced Development Centers), as well as the decision-making and acceptance (Accelerated Solutions Environment). Marcel was actively involved in the first Dutch SAP projects (2002) where offshore development from India was applied and he processed these experiences in the different Capgemini (project management and SAP) methods. On an international level, Marcel was also involved in the development of tools and methods for standardizing the size determination for ERP projects (estimation & measurement) and in the integration of Outsourcing and project based services.
As line manager, Marcel was also responsible for the regular management of ESC (average of 10 employees) and reported back to the board of Capgemini. In this role, Marcel began support of the SPEER program in 2004. From July, 2004, the ESC became structurally part of Capgemini’s Delivery process (in the form of Win Centers and Project Centers).
