In our recent blog article, we gave you an introduction to Roadmap Pro our revolutionary change management platform for project teams & enterprises, technology firms and consulting firms.
In that article we gave you a thousand foot high view of the power of Roadmap Pro and how powerful it is as a business and productivity tool for change implementation. A fully featured change management toolkit that provides the step-by-step process, tools, data and learning to deliver your change projects successfully.
This week we want to take a more granular look at the cornerstone of Roadmap Pro in more detail – the innovative change planning functionality that enables you and your teams to quickly create, collaborate and deliver on your change plans.
At the heart of Roadmap Pro is an integrated change planner that enables you to take a “GPS like” approach to creating and delivering your change plans. Here are just some of the key features:1. Project dashboard
Your Roadmap Pro project dashboard provides a high level view of your plan all in one place – key milestones for the project (like getting the elevator speech signed off, baselining the risk profile, getting your stakeholder plan agreed), upcoming tasks and the other people you are working on.
2. Detailed step-by-step guide to implementation
As you click down into the Plan section of your project, the sophisticated planning functionality in Roadmap Pro really comes into its own.
The planner gives an invaluable step-by-step visual guide to the entire change implementation process, all mapped out against key project stages – like plan, deploy and track. It then guides you through the entire process from creating your elevator speech, through stakeholder planning to engagement and deployment tracking.
It’s all built on our proven approach to delivering change implementation and enables your team to take a consistent and standardised approach to delivering change projects across your organization.
3. In-context and on-demand learning support inside the planner
Roadmap Pro also takes an innovative approach to learning support which is delivered in-context and inside the change planner – as a series of short, sharp learning video “bytes” that provide expert tips and guidance available as you need them. In addition to on-demand learning, it includes role based modules specifically for change agents, executives, managers and individuals.
Which means that Roadmap Pro can be adopted quickly and easily not only by experienced change practitioners, but also by less experienced staff members who can be quickly onboarded and then learn as they go.
4. Pre-populated fields, guides and templates simplify and jump you ahead in the entire process
Whether you are working on the early stages of baselining your change or beginning to give consideration to stakeholders or change network mapping, the planner inside Roadmap Pro is packed full of prepopulated content, guides and template that give you expert guidance and the basis for all of the key elements of your plan.
5. Single click sharing and collaboration on your plan
Single click sharing in Roadmap Pro allows you to quickly share your change plans with colleagues and:
- Work together on progress, status and key milestones
- Collaborate 24/7 across teams and geographies
- Take a standardised and consistent approach to ensure success in your change initiatives
That concludes the second part of our blog series on Roadmap Pro. We hope it has given you a feel for what we truly believe is a revolutionary approach to delivering change projects. One of the things that is coming out strongly in our discussions with clients around this subject is that methodology is methodology – and in broad terms most change management methodologies share similar characteristics.
It’s how you choose to implement that change management methodology that can truly define the level of success in change implementation. And this where Roadmap Pro really comes into its own – by providing a proven approach to change implementation that is easy to learn and adopt, is scalable and standardized and cost-effective.
