Working Across Cultures - Two Resources

Michael Sampson - Currents

Last week I was doing some preliminary research for a client project in the adoption area. A financial services institution is deploying a suite of new collaboration tools, and I was asked to structure an approach for the human side of the adoption program. One of the twists with this project is that the client is based in an Asian country, and hence there was a need to think more deeply about how national culture impacts collaboration style and the adoption approach taken.

Adoption Doesn't Exist

Michael Sampson - Currents

Sadie argues that adoption is like the color white - it doesn't exist : "Adoption" doesn’t exist. It’s not an improvement or an upgrade that you can run like a project and dedicate attention and resources to as its own workstream. This is adoption. Sadie then outlines a number of "critical colors" that have to be in place for adoption to be white. I'd say it a different way - adoption does exist - it is something that you want to work towards.

Changing IT Mindsets From Deployment To Adoption

Collaborative Thinking

strategists need to think of their projects in terms of adoption not deployment. deployed), the project is “over” – resources are reallocated, budgets are closed out, systems go into some type of maintenance mode or await the next release cycle of new development.
