Why do some HR technology approaches succeed while others fail? If the time has come for your organization to choose a new HR software platform, this is an important question to ask. How does an organization find the right HR software platform? One approach is to find a company with a successful HR technology strategy and simply use the same HR software vendor they use. But this doesn’t always work.
Every company is different. A solution that works for one company may not work for another. A better approach is to learn about the process the successful organization went through to find the right platform and adapt a similar plan for your organization. What were their key objectives? What questions did they ask during the vendor search? What did they understand about the implementation before project kick-off? What did they consider at each stage of the process, from selection to go-live?
If you find enough companies who have succeeded and work backwards to understand how each of those companies achieved that success, you start to notice that the things they considered along the path to that success are often the same. Join Patrick Sayers, president of Newcastle Research, to learn about some of the most important things successful companies consider on the path to a successful HR technology strategy.
