#Microsoft365 #Office365 Here’s my top 10 Reasons Why Tech Fails. I bet you it’s not what you think it is.Thought I’d publish a 1 minute read after exposing you to a couple of “Mills & Boons” 30 minute read blog-books earlier this week 🙂

For previous posts in my #Microsoft365Challenge go to the index page.

DISCLAIMER:  I WRITE ARTICLES ABOUT OFFICE / MICROSOFT 365. CONTENT IS ACCURATE AT TIME OF PUBLICATION, HOWEVER UPDATES AND NEW ADDITIONS HAPPEN DAILY WHICH COULD CHANGE THE ACCURACY OR RELEVANCE. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN USING MY BLOGS AS GUIDELINES.

According to reports, 25 percent of technology projects fail outright; 20 to 25 percent don’t show any return on investment; and as much as 50 percent need massive reworking by the time they’re finished.  Read more…

My Top 10 Reasons for “Why Tech Fails”

  1. Thinking all your employees are PC Literate
  2. Not training people because the App is ‘intuitive’ (if it’s pretty they’ll use it)
  3. Management does not lead by example (they don’t use the tech themselves)
  4. Have solution > find problem (not creating a need first)
  5. Listen to reply, not to understand (requirements)
  6. Insufficient communication (employees are not aware of new digital strategy for example)
  7. No (visible) management buy-in or support
  8. Focusing on changing Tech Culture while ignoring People Culture
  9. No success criteria defined leads to no measurement for success
  10. Training…. Training…. Training (fix the broken basics before adding new sparkly tech)

 

Purpose of this blog challenge:  I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
