  • How are specific examples informing strategies to address employee reaction to change caused by information technology? We will discuss how to reduce fear, how to leverage interest and enthusiasm, and how to facilitate engagement of the entire workforce.
  • How can the leadership of organizations work hand-in-hand with champions to facilitate implementation?
  • What trends/changes are on the horizon and in what way will employee engagement be affected?
