Organizations don’t always respond to changes in the same way. Just because a fellow MSP managed to seamlessly build a documentation culture doesn’t necessarily mean you will be able to as well. What matters, however, is that you don’t drop the plan altogether at the first sign of resistance. After all, no one ever succeeded at anything by throwing in the towel when the going got tough.
Building a productive documentation culture requires more than just warm, fuzzy vibes. It also requires cold, hard numbers. While everyone on your team may be aware that IT Glue can improve efficiency, at least in theory, to get continued buy-in from your staff and management you need to show that documentation has a positive impact on your business.
