You know about Early Adopter, Laggard, right? No, have a look at this post & funny video therein. And do you wonder if you are the first guy who’d start dancing or other-two who’d joins the-first-one? Or somebody keeps watching those guys dancing for a while and then joins or someone who see almost everybody else around you have danced enough, let me jump in?
Well this time, my point is not about being innovator or early adopter. Going by statistics, innovator and early adopters are still not majority in terms of percentages. The majority percentage (~74%) of population/adopter of technology or new products are Early Majority, Late Majority and Laggards. So any new technology, product or system change if it has to be adopted well in the whole organization, management has to consider how it can minimize friction caused by newer technology, product, service or even a software introduced in the company. The answer mostly lies in stakeholders’ comfort zone.
Most of us like to be in our comfort zone. As human we resist change (psychologically many perceive change as not required, right from the beginning aka IF-IT-AIN’T- BROKE-DON’T-FIX-IT), don’t we?
Of course, this is equally true for new software systems, including project management software. And Zilicus understands this really well and it has designed its project management software ZilicusPM to work to your comfort level.
If you have been looking for a RIGHT project management software for your team, your organization, you would first ensure PM software from your shortlist of project management software that works and really meets your core or essential requirements of managing projects at your company. Then look for bells and whistles (optional/nice-to-have items).

One of the most important factor that organizations miss out while selecting project management software is PERFORMANCE. Online project management system has to deliver high performance. Project teams get max-frustrated and max-annoyed with tool that shows ‘PLEASE WAIT’ box or ‘WE ARE REVOLVING IN CIRCLES - PLEASE WAIT’ :p for every other click you would do on task list, edit task, create issue or any project activity in the tool. People get frustrated if they have to wait to update things, view report, view dashboard. If you want project management software that works for your company then any such lag/performance issue is strictly NO NO for that tool.

Once you have realized that given project management software has all features you need, your next worry would be whether that project management tool will work for different people in your organization who have different pace of working, different job roles, skills, experiences and so on. And that’s where the real challenge crops up. The adoption challenge! If your project team is not going to use PMS regularly, the how will you justify the RoI?
