Change can be hard, especially if your team has been used to doing projects a certain way for many years. However, new technology is truly making contractors’ jobs easier. Sometimes, getting everyone on board with the new technology can be a challenge, especially with training involved. People can be resistant to change their day-to-day work schedules and habits.
How can you slowly bring digital software changes into the workplace?
- Standardize your systems and programs. Define your workflow.
- Show your team how new construction software will help work better and faster. Show them why this is a benefit for them personally (less time at the site more time at home).
- Start small when rolling out the new software. You want your team to get familiar with the new solutions so mistakes are minimal.
- Get the basics down on the new software before learning more advances features. You will learn the entire software platform in time.
- Don’t put too much pressure on your team. Let them test the tool and get used to it.
- Encourage group engagement so people are exchanging and sharing documents and updates in real time.
- Make training a priority.
- Let your team know exactly how you expect them to use the software and how often.
- Check in with your team often to make sure there are no issues with the new program.
- Look at your data often to see how the new software is helping your team.
Brining in new digital tools and software can be overwhelming, but in the long run, it can help your team function better.
