    Poor Education

    Even if your new software is nearly flawless, team members will always approach it with skepticism, especially when they're already accustomed to an older platform. Every business should seek to remedy this issue with quality documentation, intensive training, and software socialization efforts to smooth the adoption process. Regardless of how you approach a new software implementation, this is an absolutely necessary step for helping users make the jump.

Enterprise software development is a massive undertaking. It's expensive, it's daunting, and yes, it can be risky. Yet somehow, after all of the hard work and budgeting that goes into these projects, it's disconcertingly common for businesses to run head-on into a brick wall just as they approach the finish line: No matter how smoothly the launch might have gone, there's always the looming possibility that users simply won't use the software.
