Change Management for New Technology Implementation
Updated: Aug 8, 2020
Implemented the best fit technology solution for my organization but users’ adoption is low!
The new technology implementation project was completed and the organization celebrated the launch of the new solution but nobody used it!
Employees do not believe in the new technology and view it as a waste of money and time!
If you think only by implementing the latest technologies, you will address business problems then unfortunately you are wrong. However, the good news you are not alone, according to Gartner only one-third of change initiatives succeed. Why?
The real value of any technological change initiative could be only realized through employees’ adoption and utilization of the solution to run organization business. Based on what I ‘ve noticed, several organizations think about the change management and adoption once the technology is completely implemented or once they face a high resistance from the end users. As CEO, CIO or CTO, what should I do?
You need to go beyond new technology announcement and traditional training. Change management is not once off exercise but you should think about the technological change as a journey that consists of six stages:
Clearly define the new technology change and its objectives
Assess the change impacts and analyze the impacted stakeholders
Plan and design the change journey for the impacted stakeholders’ groups
Implement the change plan
Deploy the change at scale
Sustain the change and monitor the adoption KPIs
