Step 2: Include all the Stakeholders
As with most projects, it takes some pre-planning to see everything come to a successful completion. With any identification program, you’re going to want to get the advice of your management team and any marketing and graphic designers you have, in order to decide on how you want your ID Cards to be presented. It is important to consider all the stakeholders involved in the ID program, and get their input early on. Your IT department will need to be included from the start to ensure proper information handling procedures are carried out, and adhere to your internal company policies on privacy of information. As well, once your program is in place, the IT department will carry the majority of responsibility for maintaining it, and responding to any technical issues you may have.
The last thing you want to do is surprise a group in your organization with the card, and then encounter resistance to adoption. You would be surprised how many other divisions of a company or organization use the card for purposes that you had never considered. Knowing who is using the card, and for what purpose, will reduce problems that occur when you make a change to the design or functionality.
