Over the course of several years, Kevin Craine has interviewed hundreds of folks in Information Management for the AIIM on Air podcast. There are a few questions Kevin loves to ask his guests:
What’s your biggest challenge right now?
What’s the one thing keeping you from truly innovating at your job?
What is the single most significant barrier to digital transformation at your company?
These are powerful questions and you might assume that there is a lot of variation in how people respond to them. But, the reality is – every time, without fail, the response is always people. More specifically the ‘people aspects’ to managing change, like earning a seat the table, getting executive sponsorship, and helping users to adopt the new systems, approaches, and strategies connected with information management.
Kevin hears these challenges again and again, which boil down to the concept of Change Management. So, to help you solve this number one barrier to Digital Transformation, we’ve dedicated this entire episode of the podcast to change – dealing with change, understanding the cycle of change, and ultimately how to lead your organization through the natural and emotional aspects of change.
