Part 2: System Selection: How to make the right choice

In this 12-part series, Kate guides the HR professional through how to navigate, succeed and lead with HR tech project-work. From the inception of the business case to the handover into BAU, we’ll follow an indicative project timeframe to explain the way and the why of a project step-by- step, to give you a full toolkit of practical points, a deciphering of definitions and the top tips to get results important to HR and the wider business.

We are really pleased that HR Zone are sharing a 12-part series covering the steps to successful HR technology project-work. Enjoy that content via the Phase 3 Insights library or pick up the same advice from Kate’s column. The aim is to complete a toolkit of real, practical advice for professionals for whom systems project management is not the day job to navigate those projects from start to finish with confidence and to success. Each article includes key questions, useful tips and small actions you can take away to make your own personal progress.

The plethora of choice in the HR technology market today makes system selection a point of fantastic potential, but difficult and daunting too. In the opening article to this series, I looked at creating a relevant, realistic and real case for change. Business case beside you, the exciting part is the approach to market.

In Part 2, I examine the options available, highlight some of the key considerations in selection and explain for you about the right choice thinking to undertake.
