Change Management 

Increased User Adoption

Start the Change Management initiative before the Migration is done

Many change management programs fail before they even start due to a lack of strategic discovery and planning. Ensure you’ve built the right team to manage the pending change with users and create a winning blueprint well in advance of starting the migration. Make sure you are communicating with users well in advance of training sessions – and the rollout – to build excitement with new solutions.

You’ve rolled out the new technology but users aren’t fully using the feature set. Sound familiar? Our experience in over 1,700 deployments shows that if you deliver messaging to your users with the WIIFM (What’s in it for me?) spin it will greatly improve end user adoption.

Use a “What’s in it for me?”, or WIIFM approach

Which sounds better to you?

“By using you’re our new Office 365 we will save the company lots of money!” - OR – “With Office 365 you can work from anywhere - even Starbucks!"

Both statements are intended to drive use of your new Cloud technology - but the “WIIFM” message is highlights a direct benefit for users, which leads to more personal interest in using the new solution. All communications, collateral, and training in your Change Management approach should have a WIIFM context.

"Enabling’s change management process was invaluable to the successful Office 365 and Skype for Business deployments.  Enabling was instrumental in coordinating communications and training and leading the training classes, both online and on-site, which resulted in not only a high percentage of the staff attending the training but also the staff were completely prepared on Day 1 when we went live with both new platforms.
