The Deltek Talent Consulting team has the opportunity to work with various organizations on a daily basis. We regularly see the challenges and successes that come with rolling out new talent solutions.  We strive to make the implementation process as effective and painless as possible, but we are very aware that it is not always an easy process.

The customer project teams we engage with are often working on their implementation while still juggling their busy day jobs. On top of that, the very nature of an implementation is change – so we are asking customers to balance the extra workload while championing the change. The most common outcome of this balancing act is that the project team is forced to prioritize a smaller list of success factors for the initial implementation. For example, the strategic/executive reasons for purchasing a talent management solution may have been to improve efficiencies by automating paper processes; ensure proper adherence to compliance regulations; improve employee engagement; gain knowledge of employee trends (i.e. turnover, rate of internal promotion etc.). As the implementation moves forward, this initial list of priorities sometimes shrinks to focus on just one or two success factors in order to ensure the solution implementation is completed on time and within budget. This decision is often made with the goal to once live, re-visit the full list of priorities.

It is for this reason that our Consulting team strives to ensure we are offering consulting packages post-implementation that continue to help drive those strategic objectives forward. In a real-world situation, taking the ‘baby step’ approach is often the best way to go - going live with a solution, experiencing the solution for several months in order to gain a full sense of understanding of what is and is not working, and then re-visiting the next steps to achieve optimal performance. The Deltek Talent Consulting team’s desire is to work with you based off of your experiences to date, coupled with our best practice knowledge to improve upon your current processes and take a second look at your initial list of success factors to help you ensure you are achieving every single one
