I have been working on improving the current process of tracking launches in my company for the past three months. The major difficulty was to define, locate and use the appropriate data for tracking launches.
At this exact moment, the only way I see this new process working when I'm gone in another three months is to use a software that would automatically make connections with the data and make it easier to visualise. As no one from the two departments I am working for wants to put a person in charge of analyzing it, it was the best outcome.
Besides, I already know the software and I know how to make it work for the two departments I am working with.
After talking to my manager and colleagues about the benefits of the software, they all seemed to appreciate the added value it could bring to the team. However, at no point did he say that we would use it. He keeps telling me there are maybe better ways to implement it. And he is right, there are better ways to implement it, only if a person from each department is assigned to analysing the data which is not the case and will not be due to department conflict. The only way I see is to automatize the process with this software.
I don't want the new process not to be implemented once I leave and that software is the only way I see this working. How can I talk with my manager about that? How can I make him get the software?
Edit : Ok so in the end I have talked to my manager and explained him everything. It turns out, they have canceled the improvement of the process because they don't have enough funds for it (apparently) or time so all of what I've done was for nothing. I guess you don't appreciate success without failure. Thank you for your help anyways :)
