Change Management

eProcurement deployments deeply impact an organization’s day to day business processes. This change often has a global reach and affects employees at the corporate level and at the site/local level. The success of a deployment is often limited by its lack of internal communication, lack of internal buy in and lack of executive sponsorship. CCP Global has a deep understanding of challenges and barriers that corporations face when implementing an eProcurement platform. To help customers manage change, we use three distinct phases. First, we plan how changes will affect your organization and set project goals. We then execute the plans and deploy the eProcurement platform. Finally we help lead the adoption phase to ensure internal buy in is accomplished within all areas of your organization.Plan:

  1. Develop Program Vision and Business Case
    • This not only gives your deployment a direction and a vision to work towards but more importantly gives your organization a reason to change
  2. Set Goals and Success Measures
    • This will allow your organization to track progress and gives a clear definition of what success looks like
  3. Understand Barriers to Change
    • People, not systems or technology, are the biggest barrier to change. Change happens at the individual level. Understanding the reasons and motivations behind the resistance is key to project success

Execute:

  1. Governance and Success Measurement
    • Status meetings with tactical resources and steering committee meetings with executive sponsorship ensure that progress is frequently being measured and escalations are being resolved
  2. Cross Functional Collaboration
    • Successful collaboration can increase success by breaking down silos, providing alternative views of problems and potential solutions by reducing overlapping/competing objectives that often require rework

Adopt:

  1. Internal Buy In
    • Organizations that have strong internal communication, provide comprehensive user training, incentivize users and celebrate milestones have the more long term success
