It doesn’t matter how much time, effort, and expense you put into selecting the right software for your organization—if you don’t plan all the steps necessary to ensure a successful implementation, you’re wasting your precious resources.
Implementation involves a number of elements, including getting buy-in from the people who will be using the system and those who lead the organization, making plans to migrate data and integrate the new software with your other systems, and training staff on procedures and best practices for using the new software.
Idealware designed this new course to help you with each step. They will show you how to make sure you are including all the right people throughout the process. They will help you determine whether you need outside help—and how to work effectively with consultants or vendors. And they’ll identify common mistakes and show you how to avoid them.
This course includes “homework” after each session to help you put these lessons into practice, as well as additional resources for you to take with you to help with your own implementation projects.
During this course you will learn:
• What a typical implementation project looks like.
• Who is involved.
• How to adjust for common scenarios.
• How to keep the project on time and scope, including best practices for project management and avoiding common bottlenecks.
• How to work with vendors and consultants.
• What common mistakes to expect, and how to avoid them.
• Best practices for change management and user adoption.
