Leaders know technology is no longer a ‘nice to have’, it’s a strategic imperative which may determine their very existence. Yet organisations generally struggle to make the most of the opportunities technology offers. 70% of technology projects don’t deliver what they promise and 84% of digital ’transformations’ don’t result in long-term benefit.
It turns out these failures are rarely the result of technical limitations. The most common issue is organisations put too much focus on technology and not enough on people.
In this keynote, Simon shares what a more human-centred approach to technology might look like. An approach that acknowledges people’s concerns and addresses the issues holding them back. An approach that actively develops the knowledge and skills both people and organisations will need in the future.
If you want to design technology initiatives that people will embrace then this is the conversation you need to have.
