Whether investing in a new software, tool, or team member—you likely have an idea of what you’re trying to achieve. But if you’re expecting too much from any one business solution, you may miss the opportunity to utilize it correctly. Here’s how to make sure your expectations align with what is possible.
Expectation: An immediate solution
In an ideal world, you’d incorporate a new solution into your business strategy, and see results the very next day.
Reality: Meaningful change takes time
In reality, you need to be patient with new tools and techniques. It’s better to realize gradual, but long-term progress than to reap immediate, but short-lived results.
Expectation: Everyone will embrace new processes
So, you’ve decided on the best course of action, and know it will make a huge impact on your business. Your entire team will be happy and willing to change their day-to-day work habits…right?
Reality: Expect and plan for a learning curve
Change can be hard, even for the most flexible employees. New processes come with a learning curve, so be patient and supportive during initial on-boarding.
Expectation: Your team will pick up new skills right away
You have 100% trust in your team’s capabilities. You just know they’ll be able to pick up the required skills with very little training.
Reality: Training is paramount to success
To see a real return on your investment, your team should be ready to jump on-board prior to launching a business solution. Set them up to succeed by making sure they receive proper training.
Expectation: A single business solution will address all challenges
Every business comes with its own set of challenges, and you may think the perfect solution will address all your concerns at one time.
Reality: Prioritization is key – solve one challenge at a time
When you try to achieve too much at once, you can dilute your efforts. It’s better to prioritize your most pressing challenges, choosing a focused and effective business solution for each.

The right business solutions can have a significant impact on your organization. But to make the most of any new investment, you need to have a clear understanding of the problems you’re trying to solve and the resources you’ll need to solve them.
