Description

 “It’s not the technology, it’s the culture,” is an oft heard lament when implementing new technology that doesn’t get the desired results.

Corporate culture is the set of understandings and beliefs on how an organization works; it is “how things are done around here.” Before undertaking a large-scale change project, such as implementing new technology, installing a new organization or deploying a new strategy, you need to put your culture to work to support the change rather than have it be the major barrier.

Dr James L McCormick, Associate, Business Fundamentals Group will talk about implementing corporate change.  The talk will be based on the recent Management article in the January issue of the Journal of Petroleum Technology.  Dr McCormick has a broad and deep experience in implementing both large and small change projects in a variety of cultural environments.
