Introducing new technologies in business, society or academe can be complicated especially if there are resistance from its users. According to the book of Calestous Juma, (Professor of the Practice of International Development; Director, Science, Technology, and Globalization Project; Principal Investigator, Agricultural Innovation in Africa) Innovation and Its Enemies: Why People Resist New Technologies shows that there are many debates over new technologies that are framed in the context of risks to moral values, human health, and environmental safety. It also discussed how technological tensions are often heightened by perceptions that the benefits of new technologies will accrue only to small sections of society while the risks will be more widely distributed. It also reiterates the tension between the need for innovation and the pressure to maintain continuity, social order, and stability as one of today’s biggest policy challenges.
That is why before deciding to adopt new innovations, there should be an identification of problems and how it will affect the business, society or the academe in the long run. There should also have a clear presentation of the issues that will address the need for the new technology and why its users should accept it.
Here are the 4 things to do before introducing the new technology:
- Investigate – before adopting new technology into your system, you must identify the issue, find possible solutions and investigate how it will gain acceptance from its users.
- Plan – the process of technological change should have a planning part to gain acceptance for the details.
- Implement – this will determine if the initiative will be successful or not. New technologies require installation and setup which involve understanding of the people who will work with the new technology.
- Evaluate – after a successful introduction and implementation of the new technology, the organization should perform an evaluation if the innovation will motivate employees and will improve the company performance.
