Make it work, make it great, make it stick is the smart Swedish approach for business transformations reducing the risk that they fail

I learned about this successful approach during the 3 years I worked in Sweden, and apply it to all projects that we support.

1๏ธโƒฃ ย ย Make it work

โœ… Reducing scope to the minimum that is required. You have great expectations when you start a program/ project. There is a business case, there are improvements that should have been done within the last years, but they have been postponed due to budget, time, resources or because of the business transformation ahead. Slice and dice it into digestible portions (releases). Realize the minimum with a first release.

โœ… Working on the integrator relationship. You decided on an integrator. As in a marriage, the hard work comes after saying โ€œyesโ€. You must communicate, discuss, come to joint decisions, sometimes compromises, and adjustments each day. This is applicable to all levels within the program/ project organization. You will be rewarded with a successful project as it is always the people who makes a project a success.

2๏ธโƒฃ ย ย Make it great

โœ… Reality checking business needs,
โœ… Potentially adjusting the scope that did not went live with the first release.
โœ… Realizing the outstanding scope with different releases.

3๏ธโƒฃ ย ย Make it stick

โœ… Making sure that

โœ… The solution is used as it is supposed to be,
โœ… Potential errors are solved in time,
โœ… Training needs are analyzed, and delta trainings are performed on a regular basis,
โœ… KPIs are monitored and reported on a regular basis
(e.g., guidelines and process adherence, data quality etc.)
โœ… Data is maintained in a clean manner (no duplicates etc.), and
โœ… Customizing of the solution is neither expanded exhaustively nor not documented properly.
