Process & Project Implementations

 

Synopsis

To ensure a greater level of success for project completion and process embedding, organisations need to take a holistic view of process implementation projects. Serious consideration needs to be given to the development and mapping of the three basic elements of any quality improvement initiative; process, people and technology. To concentrate on one area to the detriment of the other can jeopardise the success of the project. 

 

A practical implementation of service management should include:

 

  • Quick wins to demonstrate the benefits of service management
  • Starting with something simple and adopting a phased approach
  • Involving customers, especially those that have been critical of the service
  • Explaining the differences that will be seen by customers
  • Involving third party service suppliers
  • Explaining what is being done and why to everyone involved or affected; support staff are often cautious about changes. It is particularly important that they understand the benefits to overcome their resistance
  • Involve staff wherever possible in designing improved process/workflow, facilitate ownership interest Educating staff and managers to become service managers

In general however, it can be said that process implementation projects vary somewhat from traditional IT projects. They are by nature, culture change dependent projects. Proactive measures to address change resistance, proactive project sponsorship activities and creative communication planning activities must be incorporated into project planning at the earliest phases. Process implementation projects present special challenges for IT organisations, but adequate planning will help insure an effective implementation strategy

 

Join Kerry on this session where he will explain in detail what is needed to successfully address all key planning and implementation activities.
