We can overcome implementation challenges by applying the diffusion theory of innovation and analysing the factors mentioned in our situation. This will allow us to gain an understanding of the resources required from an external and internal perspective for stakeholders in an organization to accept a proposed technology or solution. This may involve improving communication within departments, so that everyone knows why the change is being made. Training opportunities can also be provided when required. We must also ensure that our new solution is compatible with all existing software and systems, thereby minimizing disruptions.
The diffusion of innovation will ultimately help us determine which actions are needed to maximize positive outcomes and minimize potential risks that may be associated with the implementation of a change within an organisation. We can achieve our goals more easily if we plan and carefully consider each stage of the process.
