Six steps of readiness

  1. Align on business drivers

Clearly identify what your company goals are that can be impacted via PeerBie MyWork. This is not about launching “just another tool” but about transforming your organization with tangible objectives and plans.

If you’re unsure how to identify your business drivers, you can conduct a PeerBie MyWork Value Assessment Workshop to not only identify your business drivers for using MyWork but also the value MyWork can bring to your business.
