Why did you start this project? Why should people invest their time? In this lesson you will sharpen the vision and goals for the launch of the ahead platform.
Congratulations, you have decided to introduce a communication platform with ahead to reach all employees. Most likely, not all your colleagues are on the same level as you. Before we get straight into the planning, it is important that you get all stakeholders on board with the common vision and goals. The "why" should show the stakeholders the benefits and importance.
For example, a vision could look like this: "Our ahead platform will be the place where employees share, find and network to improve customer service, drive innovation and strengthen the we-feeling." The vision should be easy to remember. We recommend starting every project meeting with this vision. This helps to maintain focus and direction in the long term.
These goals help to clarify what exactly you want to achieve with the new platform. There are different levels of goals. Not all of them can be measured equally well.

Especially in the start-up phase, it is important to manage the expectations of the different stakeholders. It also helps to clearly define what will not be part of the ahead platform. Below you will find some examples of what ahead is not primarily made for:
Note your vision, goals and boundaries, you'll need them later in the kick-off presentation.
