Technology Adoption

Technology + People = Business results

Many organizations across the globe continue to invest substantial amounts of money in new technology solutions. These technologies, if well implemented, have the potential to fundamentally transform the way companies do business, and how they leverage their people to provide real business value.

Challenges

When adopting a new technology platform, the technology can be yours to mold. But your organization may yield less easily to change. If you over-configure the technology to fit the organization, are you really moving forward? Achieving a return on a large, multiyear technology investment involves systems, processes and people that can improve in step with one another. That can take leadership alignment and involvement; consistent, meaningful communication that addresses peoples’ “me” questions; role-specific learning opportunities; accessible post-go-live support – and the bandwidth to make it a priority.
