IDC and HP Webinar: Employee Adoption = Success with HP Software

Are you looking for relatively minor changes that will massively increase the chances of a software deployment succeeding? HP’s software education team is hosting a one-hour webinar with Cushing Anderson, one of IDC’s lead experts in software implementation success, to discuss these training related changes and other killer facts to help you put them into practice. We’ll talk you through the latest thinking in training strategies, methods and processes. The insight will help you cost-efficiently keep your team’s skill levels high so that once you’ve gone live, your software will deliver throughout its lifecycle.

The business case

Convincing business leaders and managers to release budget – and their people – for training can be a challenge. With this in mind we will:

  • Discuss training and project success: With reference to research among 512 IT managers, Cushing will underline why IT leaders believe that training has the greatest influence over project success.
  • Explain the link between budget and outcomes: With reference to additional in-depth research from IDC a clear link is made between comparatively minor adjustments to budget and project success.
  • Link capability and outcomes: We refer to discussions with project managers to reveal that minor improvements in users’ skills deliver remarkable benefits when it comes to project success.

The analysis will help you provide colleagues with compelling evidence about the need for training. With budgets remaining tight we’ll also explain how many HP customers are using new tools – such as HP ART – to cost efficiently prepare, share, and easily update documentation and engaging online training content.

Helping you deliver

We know that once you’ve deployed software and trained your teams, it can be a challenge to maintain performance excellence. Indeed, as people leave the business and the software evolves, the capability of the team can degrade. In fact, by year six, a company can retain only 24% of the capability it had at the launch of new software. Also, with new deployments we’re seeing ‘the business’ demand that to value is achieved faster. With these pressures in mind we discuss tactics, strategies and technical solutions to help you keep teams up to speed on existing systems and prepare them more quickly to use new software.

Our advice will cover the latest research into the most effective learning content to help you drive utmost value from your training budget, and, your software.

An experienced team

Cushing will be joined by:

  • Susan Merriman, Worldwide Lead of Emerging Technologies at HP Software Education
  • Malcolm Poulin, Director of Product Strategy at ANCILE Solutions

The presenting team has each worked in corporate education for their whole careers. With an open Q&A please bring your issues and experiences to the table – we’re expecting a lively discussion and there’s no doubt our presenters will be able to help you.
