Alternative Tech Leaders Hangout #7 Takeaways – November 2020
- Change management
Some key takeaways from our panellists are as follows.
1. Mindset change is the best promise of change
“New business models have opened but the right foundations need to be in place to innovate. There has to be a cultural and mindset shift.” – Sarah Blair, Director of IT, Thorntons.
By fostering a culture that adapts to change, the pace of change becomes a less daunting prospect. Put the parameters in place within your team to empower them to not just tolerate change, but to welcome and celebrate progression.
2. Evaluate to find hindrances to progression
“Ask yourself, what’s the rock in the wagon?” – Connie Wiseman, CIO, Ronan Daly Jermyn.
No company wants to be seen as set in its ways or stuck ‘behind the times’. In 2020, the tech landscape has not so much changed than been realised and used in a fuller capacity in order for companies to continue progressing in the face of the hurdles brought by Covid.
