In this session you will learn to strategically introduce technology innovations by applying specific change patterns to groups of individuals. Using these patterns and related techniques will not only benefit your organization but will ultimately benefit your career as a technologist by making you a better influencer, writer, and speaker.

The rapid pace of technological innovation has enabled many organizations to dramatically increase productivity while at the same time decrease their overall headcount. However, the vacillating global economy combined with “change fatigue” within organizations has resulted in a risk adverse culture. In such an environment how can one possibly introduce and inculcate the latest technology or process within an organization? The answer is to have a solid understanding of Diffusion Theory and to leverage Patterns of Change.
