The problem of adoption

General diagnosisThe problem of adopting Enterprise software:Users:Do not use prescribed solutionsUse alternative solutions (IT shadowing)

CTO user72% of CTOs consider adoption is the 1st success factor for the implementation of SaaS Sandhill

43% of CTOs recognize the threat IT Shadowing Forrester80% of users abandon enterprise mobile apps after a single use Boston InternationalSome statistics

General diagnosisAll friction creates disenchantment and excuses for abandonmentThe demise of software adoption

3 recommendations

Recommendation 1: User-centrism The theorem of user-centrismusers = customers

UX research = success

employees = usersArtist: Albert Ruiz Villar

Recommendation 1: User-Centrism To ensure the use of a solution, focus on end users:Who are they? How are they different from you and from each other?What do they need to do their work and what do they actually ask?What are their actual usage patterns and how do they differ from what the new way?Methodologies worth a shot:

Focus groupsEthnographyEX Journey mapping

The Employer eXperience Hypothesis (EXH)The productThe solutionThe behaviorThe benefitdescribe the SaaS solution of your choiceHow will the product be a fixdescribe the processdescribe the expected benefits

Recomendation 2: Simplicity

State your EXHTest with a small groupTrack and document friction: ObstaclesAdvantages Frustrations Focus on incremental improvementsGradually expand to the rest of the organizationSimplicity

The simplicity mantraNo solution will solve every problem. Simple solutions are easier to adopt and generate fewer problems in the long run.Recomendation 2: Simplicity

Recomendation 3Targeted Integration

Instead of forcing users to move to a new environment, adding new layers of complexity and friction:

Go to the environment where the user already is.

Precautions: Striking a balance between integration and simplicityDiscard the panacea of complete integrationRespect existing workflows
