What are some of the key components of cloud adoption approaches?

Whilst every company will have a unique optimal cloud adoption path, successful and sustainable cloud adoption strategies have certain things in common. These are:

  •  Leadership buy-in at all levels of the organization – it’s vital that all leaders are galvanized behind a compelling vision and are prepared to get behind and advocate the change – even if some resistance and skepticism is  prevalent within the organisation. Similarly, the role of middle management in leading change must not be under-estimated; their exposure and influence over the wider workforce can make or break the journey to cloud.
  • Clear definition, communication and embedding of benefits – ensuring that everyone is aware of the ‘what’s in it for me’ remains a staple component of change – but how it lands varies from project to project. The key differentiation for cloud projects is the use of iterative (agile) programme methodologies. In the same way change interventions and communications need to be iterative, but well planned. It is important to ensure timely messaging that is aligned with project releases and in lock step with wider organizational messaging.
  • Creating a change and advocacy network – get the new features into the hands of enthusiastic team players across the organization in order to realize the benefit of the cloud programme much earlier in the deployment cycle. This network will also act as a ‘critical friend’ who ensures relevance of the tech. 

There are of course many more ways to increase the chances of success as you work along your cloud adoption roadmap. Working with a partner that has experience implementing and successfully executing cloud adoption strategies will help you find the right path for your team.
