Amel got the thumbs up for its role in helping with a global IFS rollout

Posted on May 12, 2014

“Requested Fuaad Buras from AMEL Consulting to help us with a difficult global IFS project with a mixture of challengers – inexperience project management resulting in unrealistic planning, poor stakeholders’ management leading to expectations misalignment at global and local levels, lack of global blueprint and rollout toolkit and regularly missing promised go live dates which impact senior management confidence in the overall program. The first challenge for Fuaad was to work with existing project management and team members and reshape plans and approach to go live with IFS Finance & HRM within 3 months from their starting date. The second challenge was to design, build, test and go live with IFS Engineering, Procurement, Warehouse Management and Production modules in 5 months. Fuaad was successful in meeting both challenges. He has shown a very high level of management consultancy and political awareness to make the project changes required sensitively and successfully. He was also regarded as tough and not shy to deal with poor performers on the project which sometimes is needed to get sustainable progress. As the overall sponsor from the IS organisation, I felt that I can always rely on his integrity, honesty and constructive challenges, also when I didn’t like it. I would certainly recommend him for future IFS projects’

‘Fuaad Buras (of AMEL Consulting) was a major influence in helping us navigate the global IT organisation and ensure the implementation program of the ERP is properly resourced and people are held to account! Not shy from challenging the team for ensuring delivery and performance. Instrumental in getting us over the line (go live) and developing the strategic plan for the change!’
