[Research Focus: The accidental technologist - where your expertise meets the new world]


As part of our Research Focus, "The accidental technologist", we identified that the most resilient approach to technology is continuous investment of time and resources instead of considering projects "done". We found that the most successful information teams build technology-savvy into their strategic planning, core competencies, department services, and team development plans.

In this session we'll look at:

  • Importance of overall organisational strategy for technology readiness
  • How to build better relationships with C-suite and other organisational influencers to ensure inclusion in key technology projects
  • How to plan and handle information team restructuring to meet the needs of a changing business
  • Best practice in project management for technology projects.

We will highlight how to use Jinfo's research into technology readiness and how to create an environment more conducive to technology experimentation and one where organisation-wide collaboration is encouraged.
