“I would advise prioritizing getting people in leadership roles up the Appian familiarity curve. We brought the Appian overview training to HQ and put several members of our transformation initiative leadership team through it. Although scheduling was a challenge, it was worth it because it helped ground the leadership team in the capabilities of the platform and all the areas it could be leveraged. It made a lot of the follow- up decisions go much more smoothly.”
