Technology is so ubiquitous as a driver of change in work culture that we virtually associate ‘innovation’ with ‘technology’. But what is technology? What is the question that it is answering? And, once we have decided on a technological solution to a problem, why is the implementation of that solution sometimes so disruptive?
This workshop will explore these questions. It will introduce what technology is, what change is, what culture is, and discuss the tensions that can occur when you put the three together. We’ll go on to demonstrate how technological innovation can be woven into the culture of an organisation through ‘change agency’. Finally, participants will consolidate their learning by navigating a pathway through their own future change & technology challenges.
- Introduce the relationships and tensions between technology, culture, change & innovation;
- Introduce an approach of change agency for successfully delivering technology change;
- Practically apply knowledge and skills to a future change & technology scenario.
Exploring why technology can be so disruptive, the workshop will explore the key challenges for those on the giving or receiving end of technological innovation. Delivered through interactive discussion, solo and group activities, this workshop will provide tools, insights and practical approaches for each attendee to successfully apply to their next technology change.
Attendees will receive a content based workbook, access to online resources and the opportunity to count the course towards renewal of the Certified Change Agent Program.
