The adoption of new technology in organizations has been growing exponentially. Today, new tech, especially what is referred to as digitization, emanates from every part of the business and is generated from employees everywhere. The talent development function is at the heart of this digital transformation. When new tech has a broad reach, high visibility, and the potential for significant impact on people and culture, TD must play a more strategic role in leading the digital transformation. During this ATD member-only webcast, three executives in the field will share their thoughts and experiences about how TD can drive adoption of new technology by:

• being active participants in the decision process around selection
• leading the organization in assessing associated development needs implied by the new technology
• identifying organizational and individual barriers to the successful adoption
• taking actions to increase the ease and speed of adoption.
