A successful project approach has to consider these key factors for success:



Clear transition goals and framework conditions

  • Overall objectives are worked out, defined and communicated

  • Avoidance of "hidden agendas"

  • Analysis and assessment of the commercial, personnel, organisational
    and technical framework conditions


Fast transition

  • Fast implementation of the transition inwards (organisation, employees) and outwards to minimise risk and ensure success.


Clear concepts and models

  • Clear concepts and reference models create transparency and enable
    decision-making at any time on the basis of evidence


Efficient project organisation

  • Mixed employee teams from all sectors concerned

  • Flat project hierarchy

  • Institutionalised quality assurance

  • Setting up a project office


Focus on transition critical topics

  • Limitation to the essential tasks and goals of transition

  • Assessment of all on-going projects with regard to effects and dependencies

  • Postponement of more extensive projects to the period after the transition 
    (if possible)


Change management

  • Control of the personnel change processes

  • Consideration of sector cultural aspects

  • Active communication with employees


External facilitator / coach

  • Implementation of the migration with an external partner, who adopts (coaches, facilitates, mediates) the role of a neutral third party


Complete inventory of all assets

  • Drawing up a complete inventory of all IT assets used
    Include operative processes (procurement, moving, change management...) 
    in the transition management
