SAP HCM Implementation: Best Practice for configuring


This is my first independent project of HCM implementation. I have just started the system configuration. Done with setting up the PA, PSA, EG and ESG. Assigned to CC. At this stage, I have a very basic question which is, what is the best practice for the next steps of configuration. What do I go to next, step up the OM in the SAP EasyAccess Menu? How should I go from here?

Would really appreciate some explanatory assistance.

Thanks in advance.
