How to Assemble a Super Inventory Management Team [WORKSHEET]

Published by Jessica Zaleski at August 31, 2015 | Categories: IT Asset Management

Implementing an automated inventory management solution at your district is the first step to achieving your inventory management goals. But to get the results you want, you can’t stop there.

Your software solution is only as effective as your internal implementation plan for your district to fully benefit from the technology. Setting the stage for success starts with ensuring new policies and procedures to achieve your future goals become a part of your district’s culture. One of the most important parts of this process is assigning roles and responsibilities to employees in your district who contribute to inventory control.  

So who should be on this team?

While it varies from district to district depending on the scope of the project, we’ve found that there are five key roles that should always be assigned. Two of the most critical roles that need to be filled in order to create a strong foundation for the life of the project are an enthusiastic leader (a “master black belt”) and a team leader (a “black belt”).

This worksheet outlines these roles to help you effectively perform the change management process in your district. Filling out this worksheet will involve other departments and school staff within your district, so use this project as a chance to reach out to them so they will understand how their role in inventory control contributes to student success. This change management tool is used by our Consulting Services department to help customers launch their projects on the right track (and keep them there!).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

This chart below shows the roles and responsibilities of each team member. To learn more, download the full worksheet here.

Having worked with over 400 school districts across the country, the Hayes service team has extensive experience navigating district policy and cultural resistance to change. We can help you assemble your own super inventory management team at your district, and coach each member on what their roles and responsibilities will be.
