How to get your team onboard to embrace new technology
Whilst we understand new technology and change can be scary for people to embrace, the improvements speak for themselves.
With our efficient onboarding training, your team will quickly see the benefits for themselves and the team and organisation.
Laying your path to embrace new technology:
This should not be any different to other plans you create in the business to achieve your objectives and goals. Follow the standard principles of strategic planning:
- Set your vision
Collaborate with key personnel to outline shared long-term goals. This helps get all stakeholders on board and can avoid potential barriers.
- Build your plan
Everyone in the business needs to be aware that digital transformation will initially have various impacts for different personnel when moving from existing systems. Managing change can be assisted by informing of the costs, time and resources required and training needed, to help manage expectations.
- Involve your IT department
Moving to cloud-based technologies sometimes relies on the input of your IT team to efficiently manage the transition. To reduce any challenges or barriers with the process, get your IT team involved from the start and build a collaboration with all parties for a smoother transition.
- Develop a business case
Evaluating your return on investment will help create a clear business case and rally stakeholder support. As a result, businesses that have team support and customer understanding, will experience positive outcomes from their digital transformations.
- Get into the Cloud
Online software services are the next logical step for any business – not only does it provide the ability to use the system anywhere and not be tied to a desk, it provides many benefits around efficiencies, productivity, and reduces IT operating costs by not having to manage your own servers or maintain systems. Your provider will ensure that all cybersecurity requirements are met and there is also the added benefit of reducing your carbon footprint.
