Ables will present the session, “How to Get Your Leaders Excited About Digital Transformation with Office 365,” on September 16 from 10:30 am to 11:15 am Central Time. Digital workplace projects promise to transform companies from tired legacy thinking into teams of engaged employees that disrupt their competitors. 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. The discussion will go beyond technology and focus on why people and process are more important than technology. Attendees of this session will receive a digital workplace workbook and gain a deeper knowledge of:
- Building a business case and ROI
- Why different O356 applications work better for different companies
- How to select the best O365 applications for their company
- How to engage a leadership team and keep them engaged
- The role of change management, journey mapping and governance in transforming a business
Ables is the author of “The LUCK Principle: Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.” In the book he teaches how to harness the power of people, process and technology to transform a business into a digital workplace that balances a people-first culture with bottom-line results.
