· Making the formal case for change including organizational and cultural aspects to help employees understand the benefits of RPA, lessen fears, and provide the guidance and support to help them cope with the organizational impacts

According to the recent statistics, 30% of RPA implementations end up being unsuccessful. In this session, the panelists will cover some key implementation challenges and reasons for failure such as trying to automate the end-to-end process instead of starting simple, thinking solely of short-term gains and not investing in the future, putting people strategy later, etc, and discuss how to initiate actions to drive success.
