System Automation

 

LAMAC’s methodology was born from a systemic need for system automation change planning.  As executives, we saw an increasing number of technology products and automation initiatives abandoned because users were unwilling or unable to adopt. Users blamed the technology’s design, functions, features and workflow for their own resistance to change.   As we dug deeper into our own failed technology initiatives, we found a lack of change planning to be the root cause.  Competing executive objectives, inactive sponsorship, suppressed project managers and an overwhelming amount of organizational change saturation left employees’ heads spinning.   Our mission was to combine project management and change management into a single approach by aligning executive teams, empowering program teams and treating users as clients of change.
