Plan: Onboard and implement
The first part of your journey is onboarding Webex.
It's crucial that you define your business outcomes and plan for your implementation, especially integrating Webex into your existing technical ecosystem.

Launch: Use, engage, adopt

Conquering hurdles along the way
We created milestones to make it easy to see if you're tracking towards your adoption goals. So, if you're not where you want to be, we'll help you get back on track.
Lack of user awareness
When you hit this hurdle, revisit your communication plan, or consider gamifying adoption. If you've got champions, leverage them as well to get the word out about Webex.
Unclear use cases
A common roadblock is users not understanding how to incorporate Webex into their daily workflows. Share best practices or uses cases they can relate to in their role.
Lack of sponsorship
Executive sponsors are vital in driving Webex adoption. Prepare them and define their responsibilities well so they feel equipped to succeed. Action plans are great too!
Track your success
When you started this journey, you set attainable business goals and made a plan to achieve those goals. As you move through your journey, check in and see how you're tracking towards your goals. You'll want to track usage, business outcomes, and internal success stories.
