However, there are tons of pitfalls on the pathway to transiting successfully to leverage enterprise mobility. There is a need for a plan and purpose when adopting an approach, or the endpoint would be a failure. So, what is the effective approach for using enterprises to leverage the power of mobile devices? What is known as the third screen?
Dealing with Organizational Change Management (OCM) is the first challenge that comes with enterprise mobility. A paradigm shift from how things are being done is what leverage enterprise mobility is all about. Definitely, it can create a sense of uncertainty and doubt among workers in an organization. This is because they are probably used to processes that remained unchanged for so long, and this can make things worse.
Therefore, before even implementing a complete enterprise mobility approach, the first step should be the internalization of a culture that promotes the change in a voluntary manner. In essence, it is necessary to train and create awareness regarding the new tools and their ability to boost productivity. The pieces of training could come in the form of small and crisp videos that would help accustom employees to the new solution.
It’s hard to let go of old habits. It is easier for millennial employees to embrace enterprise mobility than for the regular employees who will find it a challenging transition. Therefore, it is necessary to aid such ‘old-school’ employees to become tech-savvy. In essence, training employees to become accustomed to tech should be an essential part of an enterprise mobility strategy.
No doubts, manual processes are characterized by increased error and time consumption, resulting in lower productivity. But, it is not enough reason to migrate the entire manual processes to the digital medium. Adopting a piecemeal method in migrating selected manual processes to enterprise mobility will help smooth out possible difficulties during the transition.
So, during processes migration, it is better to focus on low-stake processes, so that the organization will not nose-dive as a result of the displacement. After migrating the low-stake processes successfully and getting employees adequately onboard, an organization can go ahead and safely migrate high-stake processes, which include critical operational transactions.
At the leadership level, commitment towards enterprise mobility management should be modeled to the rest of the employees, which would help convince them that enterprise mobility is the way forward for the future of digital. Leadership should embark on actions that must provoke confidence in the rest of the employees regarding the strong emphasis on digital.
Finally, it is important for companies to think things through, and not slack on adopting enterprise mobility. Sooner or later, organizations that are sluggish to invest in enterprise mobility may regret.
