The Product owner is responsible for ensuring a smooth onboarding process including best practice and communicating suggestions for further development in the platform and request for improvements.
From the day when the contract to use Qondor as a project management platform is signed, the tasks for the Product owner starts. The nature of the tasks differ during the stages of implementing Qondor: pre-onboarding, training, go live and when in full production.
The factor of success is very much dependent on the preparations made in the planning stage. It is also wise to involve more people in the process who knows about the everyday work and which challenges need to be solved.
The Customer Success Team at Qondor will help and guide you through the process to find the best solutions although there are many business decisions that your company need to discuss internally and decide upon.
See our guide below with factors you should consider and steps you can take to ensure your success using Qondor.

- Test the Qondor Platform and decide which modules are vital to include in the initial training.
- Evaluate the need of integrations with other systems.

The Go live and production phases are the result of the planning and training.

- Keep setting goals and follow up the progress.
- If a new module is implemented explain the reasons why, make a hard transition making sure the new alternative is the only one for consistency.
