PREMIUM webinar

We accept technology into our lives without question. We know something new will emerge soon and we know that society expects us to adopt and adapt when the next new thing shows up. We accept it. Often we welcome it. Thanks to technology, we are saturated with change. You’re working on a project that will introduce more change. In fact, your measure of success is user adoption, and if your users don’t accept your change then your project will fail. Technology has shifted our change thresholds for better or worse. As project managers we have to deal with that. We will journey down a slightly different path of change management and user adoption. We’ll explore the impact of technology in shifting change thresholds.
