Verification of Goals, Objectives and KPIs were met
Clearly document the impact of budget changes from the workshop

Assuming the results from the workshop are successful, then the next stage is to plan a “to be” pilot process. This will:
Test the assumptions against a broader workgroup to validate assumptions
Create a climate of “readiness for change” instead of rejection
Provide feedback that can be factored into the planned rollout...
