Five Steps for Effective Tech Implementation

New gadgets, apps and software platforms can be so exciting.  They can also cripple your productivity and destroy employee morale.  A leader’s reputation can be destroyed by rolling out impulsive changes.  Proper implementation of new technology takes planning and time.

1. Slow down.  Implementation takes planning, time and money – don’t rush it.

2.  Employee Engagement.  Ask what they need instead of telling them what they get.

3. Solve a problem.  Consider the cost-benefit of change.

4. Consider long term goals.  Is this a ‘band-aid’ or a step to meeting long term strategic objectives?

5. Plan, plan, plan.  Budget for testing, training, documentation, implementation, and follow up.
