Carefully, consider anything new your department takes on during this time. Perhaps postpone things, bring them forward, or plan how to approach during this time of change.
Nourish your primary business, while accounting for changes in your environment:
Keep things as simple as possible and focus on the important aspects of business, while striving to comprehend and anticipate how new processes will impact your department.
Change is stressful; plan how to help your department cope:
Anticipate ways to reasonably protect your department during these changes. Find ways to rejuvenate and motivate your staff.
Document important contacts within your department. Identify your internal subject matter experts and ensure team members know who is targeting what.
Plan and provide resources to rejuvenate and energize your staff.
Anticipate and creatively adjust resources to keep your department resources as full as possible.
Creatively avoid over-extending your staff and prioritize resources where they will be most impactful.
Envision how process changes will impact your department, prepare your team members via informational and training opportunities, and plan ahead to minimize disruptions and barriers.
Time is evaporative; late reactions and adjustments may hurt your department and staff more than proactive and early adjustments would have.
Take opportunities to rehydrate yourself and your staff.
Identify opportunities to take quality short-cuts or ways to directly target your core business.
Identify, communicate, and post internal and external subject matter experts and resources to support your department.
Don’t over-exhaust yourself by fretting all of the exception cases (yet). Focus on comprehending the general cases and processes; try and keep even pace. Help your staff positively anticipate go-live and first real experiences.
