The first step
Set priorities and define main criteria
As soon as you set your priorities, positive things start unfolding. Begin by extinguishing the most crucial fire: identify the pressing issue that the growth platform should address first. Is it onboarding, product knowledge, or sales skills, for instance?
✅ Yes? great!
That's a good first step. Use this strategy to set the right priorities.
⛔ No? No worries!
Get information from your stakeholders and start with the biggest challenge: what do employees need to make an impact now? What do you want to achieve first? What are your quick wins?
Step 3 taking Small steps
Small steps go a long way. Breaking down the process of introducing a Growth Platform into smaller steps will help you take control of the process. Draw up an action plan, and take these factors into account. Create your action plan
1. Your dream team
Organize your dream team with the right knowledge and skills. Ask yourself: who possesses the most knowledge about engaging your employees and understanding their needs? Who will be working on the content? Who are the subject matter experts? Who holds the budget? If multiple departments are involved, ensure you include them all in your action plan.

4. Running your own program
5. You won't be alone

Implementation of a new tool is never a one-man show. Managers from each department have to be involved in key decisions. Understanding their perspective will help you get them on your side.
To persuade both your stakeholders and budget holders, prepare a compelling business case. Crafting a strong case is crucial as it ensures you provide the necessary information, establishes concrete results, and clarifies objectives.
