Introduction To The Kineta Group (TKG)

You’re an SAP Leader, and you’re been given the mission-critical task of aligning business and IT, and the success of your organization falls squarely on your shoulders.

You know the saying…”With great power comes great responsibility?”

So why do you spend so much of your time looking at 20+ page ‘alphabet-soup’ resumes?

Why are body-shop recruiters flooding the job-boards, scraping any candidates that half-fit your requirement and throwing them against your wall to see if they stick.

All while pressure from upper management ratchets up to get your team running on all cylinders ASAP.

I’d like to introduce you to an alternative. A high-level Executive Search service that focuses on quality, not just speed and cookie-cutter resumes.

Elevate The Game

Working with recruiters can be one of the most frustrating things an SAP leader has to contend with.

Believe me, I know. I am one!

As a veteran SAP recruiter, believe me I know on a fundamental level that hiring great talent is the #1 key to your success as a leader, and it can also be the part of the job that make you want to rip your hair out!

25+ page ‘alphabet soup’ resumes, half of them with multiple fonts (obviously copied and pasted from other sources)…

Recruiters representing the candidate even though you’re footing the bill…

Multiple recruiters submitting the same candidate…

Wasting time you don’t have in what I call the ‘endless interviews to nowhere…’

There are good recruiters out there, and we are trying to elevate the game.

Is Your SAP Recruiter Cheating On You?

How would you feel if I told you that the recruiters that are working on your critical and urgent positions…

Are likely taking the very best candidates they’ve submitted to you, and submitting them to your competitors right down the road?

Now what if I told you that in fact not only does it happen, but in fact it is common practice?

Check out this video to learn more about why this happens, and what to do about it.

The Dangers Of SAP Flight Risk: Part 1

Have you ever been blindsided when a key SAP team-member resigns?

You’re in the middle of a major project, management is breathing down your neck with strict deadlines and you’ve got weekly deliverables that you need to hit.

Your team is maxed out working 12 hour days and while it’s taken a Herculean effort to get your team ran smoothly, you’ve done it.

And then a headhunter calls your best Solution Architect, get’s them thinking about how the grass just might be greener on the other side of the fence, and the next thing you know you’re left with a resignation letter and a 2-week notice.

That’s bad enough, but it’s about to get worse…

A Simple Mindset Shift For SAP Leaders

“Why should we hire you?”

As an SAP Leader, I’m sure that’s a standard question in your interviewing tool bag.

But let’s flip the script here, and let me ask you, “Why should an SAP Rockstar, who has all the options in the world, work for you?”

Great benefits, great salary, collaborative culture, exciting products, casual Friday?

Kind of like all those other companies?

Who are competing for the Rockstar A-Players you want?

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve asked a client for a compelling reason to join their team, and gotten a stock, non-compelling answer in return….

Well, I’d have a lot of nickels! ?

But in all seriousness, are you a Rockstar that can attract other Rockstars?

To truly compete for the kind of SAP talent that could ignite your own career, you need a simple mindset shift. Watch this video to learn more.
