Jerry Schmidt replied to the topic How-to: Tips on Getting Buy-In from Project Stakeholders? in the forum Leadership, Management, Supervision 7 years, 1 month ago
Change management is the most difficult type of management to undertake and/or to have buy-in. The phrase that used to always drive me insane was “It’s never been done that way before.” You have to articulate how the change makes things better and provide whatever proof you can: other instances of applications in similar settings. I like the idea of a VIP group, and it allows people to feel even more engaged in the change itself. This is an area where you need to keep selling and (to quote Journey) “Don’t stop believin'”.
