When it comes to new technology, what makes it a success? The platform? The interface? The added features? No, in fact, it’s all about the talented people involved with implementation.

At Ferriot, we know what it takes to decrease failure rates and guarantee success with the new technologies that we implement to better serve our customer’s custom injection molding needs. And we know how the success of any new technology relates to the people implementing and using it to do their jobs better. The way the people in your organization work together to handle both simple and complex problems contributes to your organization’s culture.

To make new technology a success, your culture should manifest the following skills and strategies:

  • High levels of effective communication
  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • A devotion to learning and teaching
  • A commitment to high-involvement problem-solving
  • Bottom-up decision-making

Before you start planning a new technology implementation, take inventory of your team’s interactions — especially when facing challenges. Is there a strong sense of trust? Is there a shared feeling of comradery? If so, your team is much more likely to experience a successful outcome.
