“At Storm, trust and service quality are the foundations of every customer engagement, with this advanced specialisation re-enforcing these core principles. An evidence-based qualification process, requiring the partner to have a minimum of two individuals passing the Microsoft Services Adoption Specialist Partner University Assessment, three customer references that demonstrate the ability to drive customer organisational change and a minimum of 10,000 monthly active user growth within SharePoint, Teams and/or Yammer, the Microsoft Adoption & Change Management Specialisation provides customers with even greater certainty when it comes to partner selection,” explained Conall O’Kane, Modern Workplace Team Lead.
Driving Customer Success Through Change Management
As the pace of technology change continues to evolve at lightning speed, companies across all industries are investing more and more time and money selecting and implementing the right technology solution. Yet, all too often, the people side of this investment is overlooked, resulting in fragmented adoption or, even worse negative employee sentiment and wasted resources.
A change and user adoption strategy can move the dial, with studies showing that companies following a change management program are six times more likely to meet business targets. At Storm, we understand the importance of managing the people side of technology change. Our team of change management specialists help organisations create a roadmap for success, involving users from the outset, helping organisations shape communications, training and roll-out to reduce friction and overcome barriers to change.
Speaking on this accolade, Chief Operating Officer Mick McKay stated, “At Storm, our dedicated Change Management practice helps clients navigate business change, by focusing on end-user adoption to overcome barriers to change and foster a change mindset within the client’s organisation. Earning this advanced specialisation is not only a testament to the extensive skills and experience of our team, but the growing demand for this service within the business landscape, as organisations strive to drive maximum impact from technology change.”
