  • The Event
  • The Venue
Supporting people through change is a critical element in all technology projects. The successful adoption of new technology always depends on people, particularly with the strong values-driven ethos present in the not-for-profit sector. We know that understanding the impact of change, communicating the change, and supporting people to adopt the change is key to successful delivery.
New technology invariably affects how people work, the processes they deliver, and often even their role profiles and how they contribute to the organisation. Some of these “people-focused” changes may require formal HR processes to be followed and should be carefully planned and managed. 
In this session, we will explore some practical considerations and techniques to ensure people are supported through your technology change projects, and to help you consider and plan for any formal HR activities which may be required. Through case studies and discussion, we will learn what has worked well in other organisations, and what might help you to deliver these changes in the future.
