OUR EXPERTISE IN ACTION
The genesis of the session’s subject matter is our recent thought leadership “Insight” paper, which explores the postulate that implementing technology solutions ALONE does not equate to operational improvement success. In reality, operational improvement is far more nuanced and involves the effective balancing of technology, management and human capital elements. Achieving true operational improvement requires the implementation of a robust technology backbone to support optimized business processes, and that is supported by an effective change management strategy, an accountable management team and capable and well-trained users.
The Insight explores the Keys to Operational Improvement success in terms of both technology and general operational improvement transformations. Topics covered include:
- Realistic Expectation Setting & Effective Change Management Strategy
- Sound Implementation Partner & Methodology Advice
- The Importance of Data Migration Strategy & Timing
- Successful Blueprinting, Testing & Training Planning Approaches
- Cutover Planning Tips
- Maintenance & Support Planning Best Practices
