Adoption & Effective Use

Embracing IBM Verse: Moving Beyond Technology to Gaining Value

At the local IBM Connect event in the Netherlands today, I presented on IBM Verse. The focus was on how to think about stimulating effective use and user adoption. In the presentation I made the following points:
– the promise of IBM Verse is good. I look forward to seeing what comes in the coming months and years.
– developing effective use relies on new behaviours, new team agreements, and an appropriate balancing of the multiple tools we have available.
– there are some user adoption strategies that could be applied to the introduction of IBM Verse. It’s still early days of IBM Verse being used in organisational life, so the profiling of strategies is about what could be done (prescriptive) instead of what is being done (descriptive).

Thanks to Silverside for making it possible for me to attend and speak today.
