What Is Role Mapping?

It is the process of linking end-users to process.

Role design and mapping is a key step in the ERP or cloud implementation process.

End-users are mapped to roles

Security and training are typically attached to a role.

There is no limit to the number of roles you can assign to an individual.

Why Is Role Mapping Important?

It is used in the critical work of linking the processes with people. It maps the future state processes to generic business roles and then maps them to the job, team and organization structures in your organization design.

How to Do Role Mapping

You identify impacted end-users. Map the end-users to roles, security and training.


  1. Agree on organization design – what roles get what access/security or training.
  2. Map end-users to roles.
  3. Review and approve mapping of end-users to roles
  4. Set up end-users in new system with the correct roles
