IT Briefcase Article: CIO Survey: Majority of Tech Failures Due to Lack of Employee “Buy-In”

Featured article by Brian Anderson, Chief Marketing Officer, POP Too many failed technology initiatives stem from weak lines of communication between chief information officers and their IT teams – even more so than inadequate technologies or budgetary shortfalls, according to a surprising new survey. This communication breakdown was identified by a survey of global CIOs conducted in December 2015 by POP, a crowd-solving app maker. The survey found that 52% of respondents said technology initiatives fail due to “slow” or “reluctant” adoption from end users. That compares to just 23% of respondents who cited budget concerns for IT failures, and 17% who cited lack of support from senior management.
