Our client encountered challenges in the form of resistance from business partners when transitioning from established legacy models to a novel tool. The shift posed a significant change, prompting hesitation among stakeholders accustomed to the familiarity of the existing systems. Notably, the company confronted the need for meticulous day and half-hour level planning for each PowerGen turbine. Compounding the complexity, diverse budgeting models were in place for each Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), adding layers of intricacy to the overall planning process. Moreover, the development phase faced hurdles due to continual alterations in existing models and processes. These unexpected modifications introduced uncertainties and disruptions, underscoring the importance of a well-managed and adaptable approach to navigate the evolving landscape and successfully implement the new tool while addressing the concerns of all stakeholders involved.
