“Creating a Digital Workplace Annual Plan” will be presented on Thursday, July 16 from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon Eastern time. Digital workplace projects promise to transform companies from tired legacy thinking into teams of engaged employees that disrupt their competitors. But, honestly, these projects have a way of getting off track. In fact, 60-80% of digital workplace projects struggle or fail. Two of the most frequently sited reasons: not understanding the unique planning process, and no plan for change management. This session will dive into an annual digital workplace planning process, what should be included in the roadmap, how to engage leaders and users in the process and what to consider leaving out. Ables will discuss the importance of going beyond technology and into changing how organizations think about their people. Attendees will take away a framework for planning to launch or improve their project, and a process for keeping up the momentum. For more information and registration, visit https://bit.ly/2ztQjW2.
