At the start of an HCM implementation, questions abound. You might have these questions right now:
  • What’s our ideal end state?
  • What kinds of resources (time, money, people power) do we need to allocate to HCM?
  • Which of Dayforce’s toolsets do we need now vs. later?
  • How long should this really take?
  • How can HCM modernization support our company’s broader digital transformation efforts?

Every client enters HCM modernization at a different starting point. Wherever you are, we’ll show you the way.

Practical strategy

HCM modernization can feel like an adventure into the unknown. AXL has developed a way of thinking that can be helpful at any stage of HCM modernization.

The A3 method

Assess > Agree > Act

Assess: In a structured discovery phase, we learn about your objectives and identify needs. We’ve seen it all over the years, trust us.

Agree: Share findings, establish knowledgeable consensus among stakeholders, and define success. Give everyone realistic expectations, a clear path, and how to know when you’re done.

Act: Fill in knowledge gaps, provide additional structure, and prepare the organization for efficient and informed change. Begin the journey with either system implementation or a handoff of strategic assets.
