NSW ROUNDTABLE: Business Cultures Facilitating the Implementation of New Technology - 15/11/2017

How Business Culture Types Best Facilitate
Implementation of New Technology

World Manager recently surveyed their brands with the aim to better understand how different business culture types impact the implementation of technology.

In World Manager's recent survey, three different culture types emerged. However they all had a common theme. Interestingly, they all prioritise relationships.

Relationship-oriented cultures have many strengths, however a side-effect is that they often struggle to get things done - relationships are so important, people avoid tough conversations. Decisions are often made by consensus and take too long.  For technology implementations, this lengthens implementation periods, limits engagement and reduces return on investment.

Facilitated by Wendy Donaldson, General Manager - Asia Pacific, World Manager, attend this session to learn how culture impacts your ability to implement not just technology, but any change, and take away tips on how the right kind of strong leadership can build relationships that get results.

The session will also be followed by some networking drinks.
