Getting started End-User Adoption
Learning and adoption represent an active component of each phase of a Synergi Client Project Engagement. Inclusive focus on the complete learning and adoption for users is the best way to ensure ultimate success.

This component also forms an organisational change management team to address the process changes that accompany the new implementation.
Adoption Strategy: Synergi will determine at a high level what types of training and support are most likely to accelerate end user adoption of the new platform and processes included.
Detailed Programme Planning: Taking the strategy to a more practical level, Synergi IT create detailed plans based on users training needs, where they were located, and how to accommodate diverse learning needs and preferences. Synergi will additionally define a communications plan to build awareness and understanding of the changes to come, and a content plan to support all aspects of the adoption program.
