Digital projects are transformational or should be! You need to be ready to involve multiple business lines, staff, data, systems, reporting, processes and don’t forget culture.
Taking a step back and understanding if your organisation is ready to embark on a transformation can be invaluable, not only can it highlight the risk areas to be addressed before starting the project but it can also save you additional time and resource. We can’t under estimate the time it takes to roll out a digital project but also the impact and involvement of teams across the business, the new system maybe amazing but if no one is using it properly it won’t be a successful project and you will be back to square one. This can be a hard place to recover from and an expensive one!
Getting project ready and aware of the risks, up front, will help you plan and scope the project, have a realistic idea of time scales, create communication plans and importantly manage expectations internally and with members.
We’ve worked with many organisations and honed this process over the years, if you’d like to hear more about this important step in a digital transformation, click here for a recent interview we gave on the subject.
At the end of this online assessment, you’ll understand if your team are ready and feel comfortable with the planned programme, where your risks are. Did you know that even the best staff struggle with change?
