Business Initiatives act as a means for companies to react to changes in their business environments. They are critically important to the success or failure in the market. Technology changes are a key enabling factor for such business initiatives. Changes in technology, however, are not as simple as installing software. Such technology changes need to be managed such that employees know how to apply it to their day-to-day work and business processes. Progressive approaches conducted by leading companies offer guidance on how to navigate such a transition. These approaches incorporate three phases: preparation for the technology change, executing technology change and continued support for technology change. This whitepaper offers detailed direction for each of these three phases.
