Call for Contributions: User Adoption Challenges within DAM

This month’s editorial theme is User Adoption Challenges within DAM.  There are a number of common key causes for the majority of user adoption issues when introducing, upgrading or migrating to a new DAM system: resistance to change, insufficient training and documentation, misalignment with users’ needs, poor, complex or convoluted user experience (UX) design, and inadequate change management, communication or leadership.

Getting your users onside is as equally important as gaining buy-in from stakeholders and requires that users understand not only how to use the DAM system, but also why it is beneficial to your organisation.  Fostering a sense of collaboration by including your users and garnering their feedback throughout the planning stage can help overcome any initial resistance and ensures that any potential changes have already been informally accepted.
