Navigating the shift from the Dynamics 365 app for Outlook to Copilot for Sales

From padawan to master: a Jedi's top tips to ensure Dynamics 365 user adoption

Do or do not, there is no try. This is what organisations want when they implement Dynamics 365 - a successful project, high user adoption and good ROI. But when they do not support their people on their adoption journey, projects can easily fall to the dark side.

To unleash the full potential of Dynamics 365, you need to utilise all the components that can empower your users’ journey. From considering their current pain points, to explaining your future vision, and then developing the desire for your users to meet you there. Your people matter, and this is why you need strong change management to support your digital transformation journey.

Having successfully implemented Dynamics 365 many times, we will share our advice for communicating the case for change, setting up your change management strategy and handling resistance to change.

You'll leave this session with a deeper understanding of the importance of change management on Dynamics 365 implementations, and practical strategies for applying change management principles to your own projects.

Don’t be a Stormtrooper always missing your (implementation) target, let’s make it a Jedi-level change success - may the change be with you!
