RPA Game Plan Execution
RPA is a powerful transformation tool that can improve your business as long as you take the proper steps to execute a smart implementation strategy. While the purpose of RPA is to transfer certain processes from humans to bots, your human capital is pivotal to a successful transition. Each step of the RPA process must be communicated to your team so that the execution is smooth and deliberate. If your employees understand each step of the implementation, including the areas susceptible to mistakes, you will be able to limit the margin of error as you proceed. Human capital remains a valuable asset post-implementation as well. Your IT department will need to understand the new technology in order to maintain the RPA, educate others, and continue to update the technology as RPA evolves. Consider the following keys to success for your implementation:
Choose the right project team, both internal and external – “64% of respondents stated that they felt people were central to RPA implementation.” While it is crucial to pick the right technology and implementation partners, it is equally important to be deliberate in your selection of the project team and stakeholders.
Execute detailed work plans to ensure no work is dropped – In order to ensure success across the board, new work streams should start at the same time. Pay special attention to transition steps and cutover plans and prepare readiness assessments. Each of these factors will improve your management of the changeover by reducing risk of process cycle time increases before implementation is complete.
Strong, sustained leadership and sponsorship – From our diverse experience leading technology assessment/implementation projects, we have learned the tremendous importance of sustained leadership support. Leadership buy-in cannot be overstated, and sharing an aligned vision greatly improves project performance and transition efficiency.
Early connection with IT, controls, and procurement – Since RPA is a relatively new technology, we have learned that it is extremely important to educate IT on the pros/cons and risks of RPA. Establishing relationships with IT, controls, and procurement early will help overcome the obstacles inherent in implementing a pilot program for this evolving technology.
