Managing Change: Executing the implementation plan

Compass Team

Ok, so you have everyone on board to implement Compass. Now what?

Previously, we delved into the importance of engaging stakeholders, developing a comprehensive change management plan, and effectively communicating the benefits of transitioning to the Compass school management system. With a strong foundation in place, it's time to shift gears and focus on managing the change as it unfolds. So, let's dive in and examine what it takes to execute a successful implementation plan.

Training and support

1. Providing comprehensive training for staff and students: Offer tailored training programs for school staff and parents to ensure everyone understands how to use Compass effectively. Use a mix of workshops, Compass Academy, free webinars, and hands-on sessions to cover key features and functionalities. Compass makes training materials and resources accessible to accommodate different learning preferences and schedules.

2. Ongoing support and resources for troubleshooting: Establish a support structure that provides continuous assistance to users who encounter issues or have questions about Compass. Resources could include our dedicated helpdesk, a knowledge base with FAQs, or a forum where users can share tips and best practices. Compass provides ongoing support, which is essential to maintain momentum and ensure the smooth adoption of the platform.

Maintaining a proactive and adaptable mindset ensures a successful and sustainable Compass adoption.

Monitoring progress and addressing challenges

1. Tracking the implementation process: Actively track the Compass implementation progress by establishing milestones and evaluating the achievement of objectives. Check-in with stakeholders to gather feedback on their experiences with the Compass platform and address any concerns.

2. Adapting the plan based on feedback and challenges: Be prepared to adapt the implementation plan if unexpected challenges arise or stakeholder feedback suggests adjustments. Remain flexible and open to change, fine-tuning the approach to achieve the best outcomes for your school community. Maintaining a proactive and adaptable mindset ensures a successful and sustainable Compass adoption.

We've explored the steps of executing a successful Compass implementation plan, focusing on providing comprehensive training, ongoing support, and monitoring progress while remaining adaptable to challenges. As your school continues to embrace Compass, the next phase of change management comes into play: reinforcing change.

In the final article of our Change Management Series, "Reinforcing Change: Sustaining and optimising Compass adoption," we will discover strategies and actions necessary to ensure that the Compass platform becomes an integral part of your school's daily operations. In addition, we'll discuss how to continuously evaluate and optimise the platform's effectiveness, ensuring the long-term success and benefits for your entire school community. Stay tuned!
