Implementing a brand new, mission-critical piece of software is no easy feat. This guide by Helen Gage at Spektrix suggests four things you should focus your attention on (and four things you should avoid) for a stress-free software implementation.
3. Your mission
Don’t let the mission of your arts organisation get lost in the fog of project planning and deadlines. If your aim is to shout about new writing and get first time bookers through the door then keep that in mind all through the process.
Be upfront with your project manager about what’s immovable from the very beginning – chances are they’ve got a few ideas of their own about how the new software can support your goals and they’ll be more than happy to share them.
