ASCEND – TAM’s Cloud Deployment Methodology

Change Management Services

Our change management services and methodology are built upon the premise that users must not only change what they do, but more importantly, they must change the way they think.

Clients adopting a new solution benefit from many process improvements when their system is live. Often these improvements result in changes in business operations. TAM Training understands the impact a new solution can have on employees, and we have designed a change and continuity program specific to Oracle products.Our approach promotes competence in three key areas: (1) creating an integrated strategy that attends to all of the people and process dynamics of transformational change, up to and including multiple roadmaps to address the needs of various user groups, (2) transforming the mindsets and behaviors of leaders and employees as required by Oracle-driven business process changes, and, (3) designing, implementing, and course correcting the transformational change process.

TAM Training will help you prepare for and manage business, organizational, and workforce transitions in an environment that is moving at an accelerated pace, leveraging your distinctive, data-driven insights to increase the certainty of a successful program. Our set of practices, tools, and techniques are adapted to our client’s implementations and we will apply our methodologies to best address each clients needs.
