Undertaking a people technology project can be a daunting prospect, especially if project management isn’t your day job.

However, success isn’t far away. Through effective planning, knowledge-sharing strategies, and collaboration with the right stakeholders, you can make your people technology project soar. A new people technology project is more than simply selecting a new system; it is about making the case for organizational change to deliver real value.

This webinar with experts from UNLEASH and Phase 3 focused on how to identify the benefits of system change, the structure that your argument can take, and the who, when, and how to appeal to your project audience. From the inception of the business case to the handover into Business As Usual, our panelists offer an indicative project timeframe to explain the way and the why of a project step by step.

If you need help deciding whether your people technology has longevity then we have a handy guide for you to look at here.

HR Tech is now an integral part of the HR skill-set… 

…and that’s because it’s integral to people and organizational strategy. 

According to the panelists, Fosway research shows that 33% of organizations are actively considering their next technology updates. But the idea of implementing technology, from whether you need new tech or whether you just need to update what you already have can seem like a minefield. 

And if you’re wondering if you should be looking into new HR tech for your organization, our panelists believe that every business will need to transform their HR Technology in the next 10 years, so it’s definitely worth thinking about.

With over 20 years of industry knowledge and insight into the changing requirements of technology, our expert panel delivers a 12-step toolkit full of real, practical advice on the planning and methods needed for winning support and rolling out an HR tech project.

But why are we talking about this now?

Given the total overhaul of expectations from HR from the business and from employees, and the expected rate of change for the future of work, your HR tech needs to be up to the task. And it’s not just about choosing the right tech too. It’s about understanding all the stakeholders involved and bringing them into the project plan at the right times, as well as ways to get helpful intel for your decision-making, even before you open up the purse strings.

Guided by the 12 steps to success, you’ll be provided with practical guidance for your unique HR technology project journey, and even if you’re not embarking on a new tech project now, the content within this on-demand workshop will provide advice to help you get the most out of your current technology solutions.
