Change Management

Choosing the right School Management System for your school is no easy task and it comes with great responsibility, especially if you are considering changing one system for another. Part of this very important process includes getting your team members on board. Sometimes, one of the biggest struggles we have to face as managers and leaders is to convince our team members that, just because “we’ve always done it that way”, doesn’t mean we have to continue doing so. This is where change management comes in, and this is what we are going to focus on in today’s article.

So how do we get Change Management right?

One good starting point is to review your current School Management System inside out...and there’s no better way to do it than to get your team members, i.e. those who use it on a day-to-day basis to review it and tell you what needs to be updated, what works and what doesn’t. 

Once they do point out the strengths and weaknesses of the system, set up a call with someone like Intrinsiq, who can let you know whether they can fill those gaps in your current system. 

What to keep in mind when changing to a new School Management System

When changing from one system to another, schools should keep the following in mind:

  • Ensure your move to a new system will replicate what you have and also give you what you need; you may not know what you are missing.
  • Make sure your new system reflects your office workflow and not vice versa.
  • Ensure your team is involved in each key step.
  • Make onsite consultation testing and training a key part of your strategy.
  • Work in smaller stages making sure each is delivering the crucial functionality before moving further.
  • Work to clear and defined specifications and manage expectations of your staff and the provider.
