The following is the pre-interview with Artiom (Art) Komarov. Be sure to watch the recorded interview above. Expert Tips: Adopting new technology? Here are some thoughts on how to get everyone in your organization on board: Tip 1: Everyone has an “accidental technologist” in their organization: someone that ends up being a technical resource for their colleagues, without an official IT title. When you’re incorporating new technology into your organization, work closely with your ''accidental technologist'' to get buy-in and show the product's value. The rest of the team will follow. Tip 2: Reinforce why you made the decision to implement new technology: Always come back to how the technology enables your mission and goals for the year. Employees need to see the technology as a tool that helps them achieve their daily, weekly and monthly goals, and hit their targets. Tip 3: Embrace change! But acknowledge and recognize that fears about technology, old and new, are usually (secret) fears about change. Talk openly about it with your team and encourage their feedback along the way. Successful change management is the core of successful technology adoption and will help your organization achieve its goals more successfully and efficiently. #final50
