Change Management Factors in Technology Transformation
Lalitha, Management Consultant, India

During any technology transformation - like when implementing new technology initiatives or improving over the existing technology within organisations - what are the main factors that contribute to the success of the transformation? This in reference to the change management. How to assess these factors practically?

Technology Change Success Factors
Grant Chivandire, Technical Consultant, South Africa
I think any form of change, technological or otherwise should be linked to the bottom line, organisational effectiveness and health.
Some further factors that contribute to the success of transformation are:
- A thorough stakeholder analysis. This will help you in your decision making and strategy on how you can engage different interest groups/individuals in the change programme to ensure its success. It will also help you to identify/clarify the forces for and against change which you can then manage.
- Communication is a critical factor to get buy-in, address fears and create a positive attitude.
- Active support from the top
- Quick wins
- Education/empowerment especially in technology.

People Make the Difference in Change Management
Anupam, India
Technology, once decided upon, will provide what it was supposed to do. Itís the PEOPLE who are the main concern and have to be managed. The change has to come about in a seamless and structured manner so as not to upset the workforce. If the employees accept the new technology it is a success immediately.

Technology Transformation Management
D P BABU, Other, India
Technology transformation may require REVAMPING (ALL) FUNCTIONAL STRATEGIES of an organizationís product or service domain. In this process, change management factors with behavioural dimension can deal with breaking the conventional mindsets and shaping them towards achieving organizational objectives.

The Role of Employees in Upgrading Technology
Prakash Peter, Consultant, India
Upgrades of technology are very important. In my view failure occurs due to:
1. Lack of understanding/confidence among the employees
2. Lack of proper training of the employees
3. Management urge to achieve too much results in a very short period.
