Resistance to new tech

A colleague of mine shared this great article about how workers resist new tech at the office. The article painted the reality on why is it so difficult for some companies to innovate. I personally could relate to it as I see some resemblance in some of the people in my organization, across all levels – juniors, mid-management, senior management.

While some of them do appreciate new technology, they want to take the time to understand first before they can use it or encourage other people to use it. I thought that’s fair. However, in the midst of your day-to-day work, when will you ever have the time or make time to learn how to use the new tools. And as a result, does the organization be on a stand still and wait for everyone to learn how to use it before we can enforce them to use it?

I don’t think so. That’s the recipe of being left behind.
