Where most transformation efforts fall down is that teams believe that if they simply develop a process and ‘implement’ it, that somehow everyone will just follow it. That rarely happens.

Overview: The reasons why IT transformations fail are as numerous as grains of sands on the beach. This webinar will not only discuss some of the more common reasons why IT transformations fail, such as lack of shared vision, passive resistance due to poor communication, or a misunderstanding regarding how metrics should be used, but will also provide some guidance on how to avoid the major pitfalls.

What You Will Learn

In this brief 45-minute webinar you will learn four key reasons why IT Transformations fail or do not achieve their full potential. You will also learn some simple concepts that you can employ in any Transformation effort that will significantly improve your chances of success.
