Description:  A multi-step, highly facilitated methodology was used to quickly and efficiently develop future state process maps in work sessions that combined Elire’s PeopleSoft 9.2 expertise with Emory University’s current state knowledge. The future state process maps, developed in the work sessions, contain a rich set of data including identification of customizations, bolt-ons, configuration elements, key policy points, audit points, etc which took the concept of traditional cross functional process maps to an exciting new level. These highly advanced process maps then served as a key input into the detailed design documents and will eventually serve as a key input into testing and training.
