  3. 2. Plan & Prepare for the implementation of AskCody

Set (realistic) goals and define success criteria

Your AskCody Meeting Management implementation will be an ongoing, living process. To get the most from your investment, it’s important to roll out functionality early and often.


Start with small goals that track against your overall vision. We recommend that you "crawl before you run" by keeping your goals simple and attainable and then adding to your achievements. This is also why the implementation model presented in Step 1 introduces setting up standard features of the platform as the first thing you should do in the Implementation phase 2. Set up & Configure, and from there extend to more advanced process-related features.

How does AskCody fit into your overall vision?

At this first step, it’s important to define how AskCody fits into your overall vision. For example, you may want to focus on collaboration, better utilization of meeting rooms or real estate, improved employee experience, enhanced visitor experience entering your company or other. Defining this is important in terms of having a clear mission that can be communicated widely throughout the organization. This is also important when testing the system after implementation. Do we have the features implemented in a way that lets us achieve our vision? 

Define initial objectives that align with your vision

It’s important that you define initial objectives that align with your vision and can be expanded once you deploy. Think about prioritizing and documenting your requirements and success criteria, and gather requirements from your business and end-users, and map them to the objectives and overall vision. For example, your users may want to “quick release meeting rooms” or “be able to book rooms from mobile” so make sure that functionality will be available going live.
