Change Management

Change Management is the most important part of a cloud deployment. You are about to change the way in which your employees work on a day to day basis. Change is scary and disruptive but it can also be transformative and innovative but only with the right supports and investments in place

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” – Darwin

Damson Cloud is Change Management experts, it is an area we have focused on since we began our own journey with the cloud over 10 years ago.  By focusing on three key areas within change management will increase the success of your organization’s transition to the cloud

Readiness

Ensuring your organization is ready for the coming change is important. Having a senior executive sponsor for your project, doing organizational and user analysis and how you will measure change and its success

Communication

Communication is key to the success of any project and a cloud deployment is no different.  Users won’t always read those emails that are sent out and its important to over-communicate on large digital transformation projects like this.

Having a coordinated message across all commons platforms and an internal project marketing plan means everyone in your team and the business knows what’s happening and why.

Training

Training is a must when bringing in any new system. With Google, many users have Gmail accounts and this definitely helps.  Our trainers will enable users to map the business workflows they have developed over years in systems like Microsoft Outlook or Word over to Gmail and Google Drive.  Check out our training plans or contact us if you have tailored training requirements.
