As a construction technology leader, you understand that new technologies can cut costs, boost productivity, and make your colleagues’ lives easier. But that doesn’t mean that others at your company are as eager to adopt new tools as you are. Introducing new technology within your company is part science, part art. It’s essential for you to understand what goes into the process so you can ensure that your technology recommendations make a measurable, meaningful impact on the business.

In this webinar, you will learn real-life examples and best practices around the three steps to gaining buy-in for technology:

  • How to build a use case around a tool
  • Leveraging the psychology of change framework
  • Setting up templates and standards

2024 will be a year of tighter budgets and a focus on ROI. Head into the year with the knowledge you need to get successful adoption at your company – whether it’s on new or existing tools.
