Do you get significant resistance to introducing new activities or roles into an organisation?
After much toiling, do you implement an IT project, only for the people to ignore it? Is there a lack of support for a particular project?
As technologists, we know the level of binary detail we have to consider to make an integration work, create a "hardened" website or deploy a new operating system into the organisation.
That ability often credits the technology department with the planning responsibility, often on behalf of the business function too. Yet despite this, we feel we get a disproportionate level of blame when things don't work out the way we planned.
"Excellent interactive training. I learned a lot and have a lot to think about and implement."
Typically, the missing part of the digital plan is a focus on people, such as: understanding how they will work in the future; soliciting support; ensuring that they are consulted; helping people accept and embrace change. Apply our framework "TEDET"™ to promote a successful outcome:
Target - Target the problem to solve by finding the pain point in your organisation that everyone can identify with. Use our assessments to review the level of maturity and skill.
Envision - Envision how people will work differently in the future. Create "tuned" messages for all people on what's in it for them. Look at what start and stops in a role.
Deploy - Deploy change into the organisation through assessing the impact on people's way of working. Identify those people in the organisation who will make change happen and come up with an engagement strategy to persuade.
Embed - Embed change in the organisation through understanding how people react to change and build in activities that will sustain the change long term.
Troubleshoot - Troubleshoot common ways that a transformation gets derailed and create a plan that includes the extra activities to achieve success!
We use the Partnering role in your organisation as a case study for enabling Digital Transformation.
What are the pain points? What would be the perfect day? What changes do you need to make in order for it to be a success? How will you convince your peers and decision-makers it's the right thing to do? How will you stay the course and achieve your vision?
We provide you with the tools and approaches to answer the above questions.
Feel sufficiently confident to implement the techniques on finishing the course to ensure your digital plan succeeds!
