Ables is presenting the workshop, “Creating a Vision: Getting Leaders Excited about Digital Transformation with Office 365” on March 31. Digital workplace projects promise to transform companies from tired legacy thinking into teams of engaged employees that disrupt their competitors, but these projects have a way of getting off track. In fact, 60-80% of digital workplace projects fail. Two of the most frequently sited reasons are not understanding the unique planning process and lack of a plan for change management.
This session will dive into what should be included in an O365 roadmap, what applications to use and what to consider leaving out. Attendees will receive a free digital roadmap workbook and participate in group exercises that that will provide a deeper knowledge of how to:
– Build a business case and ROI
– Understand why different O365 applications work better for different companies and decide which one(s) work best for their role and company
– Discover why people and process are more important than the technology
– Engage a leadership team – and keep them engaged
– Understand the role of change management, journey mapping and governance in transforming the business
