Sample extract from our Advanced Certificate in Business Administration course (Topic - Plan and Implement Administrative Systems)

Implementation Activities

There is a range of activities that may assist in the implementation of administrative systems, including:

Boosting Staff Confidence
Staff should feel confident and prepared for the changes; resistance to change is common within organisations when new systems are introduced. These feelings are usually caused by fear or failure and loss of control due to job task conditions changing;staff training and morale boosting meetings and exercises can help in boosting staff confidence and helping them to be excited about the changes.

Change Management Strategies
Change management strategies are those that are designed to investigate all the impacts that changes will have within the organisation and assist in managing change to ensure that a seamless and efficient transition can be made. Change management includes:

• Communicating change requirements

• Putting strategies in place to roll the old system into the new

• Training staff in the new system Putting the new system in place

• Managing any issues that may arise due to the changes

• Reviewing all changes made and modifying them if required

Changing Team/Organisational Culture
The culture of a team or organisation is the values and underlying attitudes that exist within the organisation, in some cases, over time, a negative or change resistant culture may have developed. It may be necessary to put a range of activities in place to assist the growth of a positive and inclusive culture that embraces change and is naturally creative and innovative. Activities that can be used to change team culture include:

• Team building exercises

• Training in innovation

• Celebrating change and ideas

• Encouraging teams to look at challenges differently

Ensuring System Functions Correctly
It will be necessary to map and test all systems once they are implemented to ensure that no unexpected errors have occurred. It is much easier to make small changes to the system right after implementation rather than waiting until the errors pile up without anyone knowing.

External Consultants
System implementation is a technical and complex task and it may be necessary to seek the assistance of a range of external consultants, in many cases, the consultant will be included with the purchase of the new system from the designer or developer.

Informing Relevant People
All personnel throughout the organisation that are likely to be impacted by the system changes must beinformed, providing time for them to prepare for the changes. Preparations may include:

• Finalising old tasks and files

• Cleaning and sorting through old information to bring to the new system

• Archiving information that does not need to be brought over to the new system

• Sorting and categorising of information for the new system
• Learning about the new system
• Altering work procedures and plans

Modifying Systems
Administrative system implementation is a fluid thing, it must be flexible to change and adjust to the needs of the organisation. Many small or large modifications may need to be made to the system throughout the implementation process. Therefore, the organisation must be on the lookout for all modification requirements so that they can be dealt with during implementation; once the system is fully implemented, it is much harder to make modifications.

Providing Staff Training/Information Sessions
There are likely to be a range of training and information sessions that will be required as a part of the administrative system implementation process to ensure that all staff members are aware of their roles and responsibilities in regard to the new system. Training and information sessions required may include:
• New system specifications
• Benefits of the new system
• How to use and set up the new system
• The evaluation and review process that the new system will require

efining Staff Roles
When a new administrative system is put in place within an organisation, it may result in the tasks and features of the job roles of personnel to be altered; in addition, implementation is an organisation-wide activity and therefore the roles and responsibilities of staff may change due to their involvement with the implementation process.

Redistributing Offi
ce Tasks
Within different administrative systems, office tasks may be categorised differently or make more sense to become the responsibility of a different team, so it is important to ensure that office tasks are effectively distributed according to the needs of the new system.

Team Goal Setting
It is essential to ensure that teams are encouraged to make and set a range of goals related to the implementation of administrative systems to ensure that all the members of the team are working together and able to support and encourage each other throughout the implementation process.

Temporary Reduction of Workload
In some cases, depending on the complexity of the admAdministrative system that is being introduced and the number of tasks that need to be conducted as a part of the implementation, staff may need to have a temporary reduction of workload to allow them time to assist in the implementation and actively learn the new system without the usual pressures of the job role.

Testing and Trialling
Testing all the components of the new system is vital to ensure that any issues are identified and that the implementation is successful. Testing and trialling is an excellent way of ensuring that the system works before it is made live across the organisation.
