5 Ways to Stop Second Guessing Yourself

November 12, 2013

Implementing a new badging, tracking or verification solution comes with some inherent risks.  If you stack the odds in your favor however, the desired successful outcome is within reach.

Follow these five steps to guarantee success:

  1. Clearly define your desired goals.
    Having a concise, reachable end goal provides you with a focus.   Identify exactly what the desired outcome needs to be as well as the motivation for moving this way.  This will provide you with the insight you need to begin exploring what solution is best.
  2. Think ahead.
    Technology improves daily, so when thinking of the future, ask yourself:- How may things be different five years from now?
    – How may my goals change?
    – Can I address or streamline any other cumbersome processes?By thinking to the future and beyond your present goals, you begin to realize the possibilities a new solution may provide.  As your organization evolves with the changing times you will see the benefits of future planning.
  3. Have enough information.
    Get the facts before you make a complex decision, including a general understanding of how it will affect the end result.  You may need to create a pro and con list based on what you think is necessary versus what your current budget allows.
  4. Make sure all the players are included.
    Not only are you going to be impacted, but others will be as well.  To ensure success, make sure you work with the departments that will be affected.  Also included those who will be part of the implementation, such as security, information technology (IT), human resources, the individual tasked with running the solution, etc.  By brainstorming and including these individuals in discussions, you will be privy to a different perspective of what is deemed important at each level.  IT maybe concerned with the integration portion, while the end user will want it be intuitive, as to not discourage use, etc.
  5. Partner with those who know.
    You are an expert at your job.  Let the solution providers you currently work with partner with you on your initiative and draw on their expertise on badging, tracking and verification.  They have the understanding and experience of working with other clients like yourself and can recommend a solution that will address your needs so you can take comfort in the fact that the solution you implement will achieve your desired goals.
