About the Presentation
The successful integration of new technologies is essential to continual success in today's fast-moving global economy, enabling businesses to upgrade their systems to be more effective, reliable, and scalable. Because this requires a critical alignment of business processes and technologies, organizations invest heavily in system implementation projects. Nevertheless, these projects often encounter unanticipated roadblocks to success.
In this webinar, Daniel Mark Adsit will discuss observed patterns in manufacturing and supply chain technology implementation projects across more than 15 countries—using examples that span diverse cultures, organizations, functions, departments, and technologies. The presentation will:
- zero in on critical focus areas for businesses contemplating a major project;
- highlight common yet unexpected obstacles;
- discuss how stakeholder factors can significantly impact system adoption; and
- outline steps to take to enhance strategies for addressing complex technology implementation dynamics.
