What are some challenges that get in the way of your automation projects or initiatives, and how do you overcome them?

On the technical side, the primary challenges are skills shortage, having/choosing the right tool. From a business/implementation side  is getting other teams/departments onboard, automation sometimes can be seen and making someone function redundant so it can be tricky to get a stakeholder(s) buy-in

Having so many, it can be tough to keep buy-in when change fatigue starts to rear its head.

The biggest challenge of an automation project is acceptance. The way automation is getting branded as a tool of eliminating people or reducing headcount is not right. This infuses insecurity in the mind of people about their job. Just imagine we are planning to sit with the process SMEs to understand their work, from them, with an idea of replacing them. To make RPA successful we should start with educating people about the advantages of RPA. The approach which I take is to explain to the user base that Automation is there to augment with them not to eliminate them. We need to conduct a lot of awareness workshop to build modernization advocates and promotors within the organization. This is a task of whole organization and not a KRA of certain set of people.
