What it takes

  • Kick off phase. Define the need and document the scope for the IT platform based on the client’s brief and additional interviews or a snap audit
  • Process design phase.Map out the exact process which needs to be automated, then help IT modelers design the right platform setup. We normally adjust or upgrade your current process to unlock the full potential of a chosen IT platform
  • Ready-to-start phase. Assist in training internal teams on the specifics of the platform and the upcoming project, shape up and agree on a change management plan, build a “Change agents” team
  • Implementation phase. We will be with you during the whole project and will participate in user acceptance tests to get the platform fully operational on day one

Change Management

Change is a healthy and vital part of any organization. However, change can be quite difficult. Based on our experience, there are a couple of typical issues which companies encounter while implementing change – as shown below. We also describe our approach on how to best overcome them.

Common issues

  • Resistance to change. Employees are often concerned with how the change affects themselves or their department. This can happen during all phases of the changing project, and even after the change has been implemented
  • Communication issues. Many companies do not have the right communication on changing projects with their employees. They often have too little communication, too few stakeholders involved, and the wrong content shared
  • Poor planning. Many changing projects fail because their scope is not clearly defined, or the definition of the success is not properly endorsed. Timing gets regularly shifted because there is no follow-up on the plan

Our solutions

  • Employee engagement. It’s important to build the employees’ understanding of the upcoming change (and particularly in the ‘WHY’ department), and actively involve them in the project. Also, an effective training program is essential to ensure a successful implementation
  • A communication strategy. A consistent communication plan should be developed, using diverse channels and different stakeholders involved. Two-way communication is key, as employees should get the chance to have their feedback or concerns addressed
  • A consistent change plan. We have developed a 9-stage model which can be applied to all projects we’re dealing with. It includes accurate planning and organization of the implementation, including the celebration of quick wins and long-term gains
