This article is a follow-up on my previous blog: First, watch the go-live, and Support Model Definition

Organizational Change Management (OCM) is not rocket science - it is mostly common sense that need to be outlined, explained, and executed so that it acts as an accelerator of time to value, controls the impact on corporate culture, supports the project success with user acceptance and allows, in the end, the achievement of the projected business outcome.

#SUPPORTWOMAN: Setting up a Support Model

This article is a follow-up on my previous blog:  SUPPORTWOMAN, first, watch the go-live

Support model definition

  • How is the support model defined, where and by whom are the support activities performed?
  • What works in your specific culture (similar structure can already exist)?
  • Will it be based in HR or in IT; internal or external?
  • Prepare an FAQ of frequently asked questions… knowing that many questions that come in are rather process-related (about 80%)
  • Evaluate the anticipated support volumes and development in time, either using previous go-lives and systems, or by asking questions
  • Develop an SLA approach to measure support performance

Introducing a centralized, tiered structure

A centralized approach to support, with a clarified definition of who-does-what and of all the tasks to be covered can be very helpful.
