Just like the family dog, technology is often blamed for things that are not its fault. Many of us rush to replace the technology we have. If it isn’t doing what we want, it must be broken.

Participants should be prepared to share their experiences, success, and/or failure stories, or their questions about how to address people challenges in their organizations.
