These can vary from case to case on SAP products, services or anything else from the SAP ecosystem. If applicable, charters are founded to build a task force working on a particular topic for a certain period of time. In these task forces, several members from local user groups and SAP employees engage.
In addition, SUGEN provides a method for communication among User Groups and SAP. New and urgent topics from both sides can be addressed in an open dialog. Thereby, it assures a proper documentation of the priorities.

Furthermore, the user groups who are members of SUGEN share best practices amongst each other and SAP. These best practices can focus on the organization of the groups and different programs that are executed.
