However, with today’s ever-changing technology and employee expectations around consumer-grade experiences, more organizations are turning to change management programs to properly roll out new systems, processes or information to their employees. Change management can help you prepare your people and support them through this business, technical and organizational change.
Whether you are in the early stages of planning or already in the midst of a deployment, these considerations will help you determine the right change management solution for your organization and people.

Also, take advantage of calibrate continued support and communications.
Change management is different in a Workday world. Traditional approaches must be tailored to account for these differences.
An effective change program requires dedication from change management, functional and technical teams. In addition it requires a strong team of key stakeholders to see the program through in its entirety. Ensuring you have the proper support – whether internal, external or a mixture of the two – from the beginning will set you up for success to meet your business’ goals. Workday projects are fast and fluid; having the right partner with proven best practices and experience can help you stay on track and ensure your business is 100% confident that your Workday deployment will be a success.
