A new tech tool in your tech stack
is only as good as how well it’s used.

Have you got a new tool or program you thought was great, but you or your team need to be consistent with it? Following a process is important when rolling out a new tech to your team. No one likes the excitement more of new tech than I do, but it can fizzle out if you and the team do not adopt it correctly.

For a small business or entrepreneur, having the right tech tool in your tech stack can be the difference between success and failure. It can make your business operations more efficient and productive, allowing you to spend more time on what matters. However, it’s not just about having the right tech tool – it’s also about knowing how to use it. With a new tech tool in your arsenal, you need to know how to set up systems and processes to help you get the most out of it.

This article will provide tips on how to integrate a new tech tool into your tech stack and ensure that it is used effectively for maximum productivity by your team.

Define your WHY and communicate this with your team. How will it make their life easier? What were your pain points, and why do you think this will work better?

Explain the value of the tool and why you want to use it. Will it make reporting more accessible, increase efficiency, and provide clarity or perhaps it’s for standardising processes so everyone is on the same page.

Explain how you expect the tool to be used and set your conventions.

Keep it simple at first, don’t try to do too much until the team are comfortable. Basics here are key.

Manage one process or project to start. Then gradually introduce others and other functions and processes.

Create a roadmap of where to start and where you want to be.

Create training sessions around this roadmap.

Decide on a go-live date and define what happens from this date moving forward.

Define an Advocate for the change. If this is not you in your business, elect someone to lead and carry out the change management.

As a small business owner or entrepreneur, maximising productivity and streamlining your business operations with these tools, and if you have a team, help them understand how they can be used in combination with existing systems and processes.
