Truckright Insight Magazine Article: Lack of Employee Buy-In to Blame for Failed Technology Initiatives, Finds Survey

A new survey of global Chief Information Officers (CIOs) found that most company executives blame failed technology initiatives on a lack of buy-in from employees. The survey by POPin, an engagement tool that facilitates the crowdsourcing of ideas to meet business challenges, found that 52% of respondents said technology initiatives usually fail due to slow or reluctant adoption from end users. Twenty-three percent of respondents indicated budgetary issues were the cause of the failure of technology initiatives, while 17% pointed to a lack of buy-in from senior management. Less than 8% said technology initiatives fail because of inadequate technology.
