Getting Past PoC:
The Secret to Aligning Employees with Your Technology Strategy

The most recent McKinsey Global Survey of technology and business leaders showed — yet again — that people challenges, not technology, are the biggest obstacles to realizing transformation goals. For leaders who have struggled to get past pilots and proofs of concept, this comes as no surprise. Changing culture and aligning people to your technology strategy can feel impossible, largely because it seems fluffy and unscientific. But it’s not. 

Decades of organizational and learning research reveals concrete, easy-to-understand mechanisms for driving culture change and getting employees to behave differently. Watch this webinar to hear Dr. Sandra Loughlin, EPAM’s Chief Learning Scientist, explain the research and share details on how EPAM continually evolves our culture of engineering excellence to ensure our employees keep their technical and soft skills aligned with our business strategy. 

If you are a leader in a technology, product, data or people organization, this webinar is for you. You’ll learn:

  • The primary reasons employees aren’t adopting your technology strategy today
  • Six (not-at-all-fluffy) levers of culture change that can only be accessed by senior leaders 
  • How an integrated talent ecosystem motivates and supports employees in developing new knowledge and skills
  • The role that centers of excellence and data integration play in driving employee alignment
