Technology Initiative Advisory

You’ve got their attention, but how will you deliver?

When a technology strategy is created, it might look good on paper, but those giant initiatives are where the real work happens. And the challenges are fierce: siloed capabilities, confusion and doubt, high costs and limited budgets, lack of prioritization and no lack of egos. It’s no wonder so many IT initiatives fail.

Change Adoption

The company culture needs an upgrade. And it has nothing to do with software.

Growth must go beyond modernizing technology systems and business models—lasting change often requires a seismic shift in company culture. This is the human element, where hazier complexities are revealed: resistance to new ways of doing things, disconnect among teams, and lack of awareness and motivation.

What will you do to inspire the greater organization to embrace entirely different behaviors and attitudes?

Sappington will help you to evangelize cultural change through crisp communications, engaging activities, and storytelling that conquers cynicism.
