  • Something about building trust, you don’t have long when you start the rollout, just one mistake at the start and users won’t trust you
  • Code Monkeys - typically a developer – Can do it all myself, why do you rules? Give me admin access (Front Office) Process Heads (Project Managers / Business Analysts) – know enough to be dangerous Tinkerers – Spread-sheet Bods – easiest - Risk/Back Office Newbies – don’t have much IT experience, massively grateful Kids - pick up, play with it, throw it away (traders, architects)
  • Making confluence the go to place for information Know the business Interface to other systems – don’t make it them or us (confluence vs sharepoint) Branding – DE users much more comfortable with company colours Providing templates for common function – meetings Be professional at all times – building trust Service availability & good performance - users aren’t forgiving Training – offer online & 1-2-1 sessions Pick local mentors – give them a platinum service & they can help their local teams Eat your own dog food – use the tools to support your team & users
  • The challenge of a trading environment is the constant pull between standardization & quickly fulfilling business need – Systems in use Singapore – New York time & changes High standards – upgrades have to be tested, tested & tested. Fine line between Yes & No Changing IT systems – Do you have the correct set up for a large amount of users Crazy Questions Boundaries Are you ready? (Do you have a team ready for a large uptake users)
  • First jump in growth is spreading by word of mouth in IT, the 2 nd growth period is when we roll out to the rest of the business Plan for growth, workload can be highly variable
  • Mistakes – upgrades & communication = calendars upgrade – users get very personal about content Remember using Jira & Confluence isn’t a users day job, it’s yours. Security – user creation Rate of growth, can you cope Document, document, document Spiralling costs Introducing Standardisation Early On Custom fields over 400 performance starts to be effected Workflows – No 2 teams work the same Know your stuff!

    • 3. RWE Group Business Services PAGE 317/05/13PhilosophyDuring my days as a Sky TV customer service rep I learnt a very importantlesson!When there is a problem people don’t like to feel isolated that they are theonly one with the same problem. So what I used to do was always say “Oh Ihave had that problem already today” Immediately their attitude wouldchange. So today I use this mantra dealing with my users.
