Thank you Isaac, Patti, John, Sabre, et al. for the valuable insight.
I have talked to many colleagues over the past week since sending out my initial inquiry. I did not hear of anyone reducing staff as result of any system conversion (CRM or otherwise.) I did hear of many institutions hiring temps or other types of arrangements to back-fill operations – in order to free up staff to focus on implementation project. I also heard a lot about how staffing might change – repurposing positions and such, and adding new positions in key areas such as training, analytics, reporting, data integrity, etc.
I imagine that's no surprise to many of us, but an important confirmation for my next steps in terms of staffing plans. Thank you again!
