A global Fortune 500 technology company with more than 9,000 employees
Managed change strategy and plan for implementation of new procurement system
Employees were well-informed, prepared, and equipped to support smooth transition and meet business goals
How do you get stakeholders and employees to willingly embrace important system and process changes? This was the task presented to Blue Beyond by a global Fortune 500 technology firm that was preparing to implement a new procurement system. Blue Beyond partnered with the client to equip its global workforce to adopt the critical new automated system without a hiccup, enabling the business to run smoothly and scale for growth.
Working closely with the company’s IT, Organizational Readiness, and Procurement teams, along with the technology vendor and systems integrator, we helped our client outline and implement a strategy and plan that would assist them with managing change. The plan included four key strategies:
Following the launch, employees received a “Tip of the Week” in their inbox to highlight specific system features or important reminders about process to encourage ongoing adoption and effective use of the new tool.
With a solid change strategy and practical approach (with some creativity and fun thrown in), Blue Beyond skillfully engaged employees around a major system and process change. Employees were well-informed, prepared, and equipped in advance of the change. The smooth transition allowed the company to quickly deliver on the business goals of the new system.
“This was by far one of the best organizational readiness efforts to date, and we have been so fortunate to be able to work with the Blue Beyond team. Thank you for being supportive of this effort, and dedicating many talented human beings on the Blue Beyond team to partner with us. It has felt like a true partnership, and that makes all the difference.”
