Change may be an inevitable part of life, but that's not to say it's always navigated successfully. In the workplace, change management is even tougher. Research shows that just 30% of digital transformation projects achieve their objectives. What's going wrong?
With the focus solely on the technical and process changes required, which of course are critical, it's possible the end-users, your own workers, have been left out of the equation. It isn't the lack of resources or budget constraints that result in so many change initiative failures - it's human behaviour. A more human-centric approach could be the answer, leading to higher user adoption of new technology and more successful change outcomes.
In this webinar, we'll cover:
Why digital transformation projects often fail
How to take a people-centric approach to transformation
How to bring executives and other key stakeholders along the change journey
Tips for engaging frontline and flexible workers in digital transformation projects
