We are Women in SAP. We master challenges, are built to evolve, and accelerate transformation. We break boundaries to make an impact by shattering traditional beliefs, redefining the art of the possible, creating a new future of how, why and where business gets done. Deloitte and business technology forces us to keep breaking the boundaries of the world we know. This could be you.
Building strong teams has always been a focus for Katie Tyler, Deloitte Global Consulting SAP Offering & Platform Leader. Originally on a career path that involved health and well-being, Katie pivoted to consulting more than two decades ago—leveraging her strengths in coaching and team-building to help Deloitte rise to be a leader in the market.
Now Katie is bringing Deloitte clients along with her. “What I love most about SAP and the role I have is watching organisations achieve the value and benefits they are expecting while working more efficiently to solve problems harnessing the power of SAP to become innovative leaders in their industry.”
Her global leadership role gives her a unique vantage point, too—one that allows her to work with diverse teams to help clients transform their organisations, directing their energy and the experience of Deloitte from around the globe.
Looking back on her first position in the SAP world, Katie described herself as a coach—working to guide client organisations through transformation projects while helping them make the connections between technologies and tangible business outcomes. The job required her to learn how to code, but it also tapped into her passion for working in teams and helping others grow. The work eventually led her to new roles focussed on SAP payroll solutions, human resources and employee experience—including the SAP SuccessFactors offerings. She brought all of her experience and strengths to Deloitte in 2014, joining the Human Capital practice within Deloitte Canada.
With Deloitte’s profile continuing to rise amongst SAP customers, Katie wants to see the profile of women also rise within the organisation. One potential impact of having more balanced and diverse teams: An ability to show up as a stronger and trusted team for clients. “Many of my clients I can truly call friends, and they come to me now, from my first years as a consultant, because they trust in me,” she says. “They trust that I'll bring the right team to achieve their objectives with quality and that's what's important.”
