  23. 23. 7. Choosing the path of least resistance.
  24. 24. Going with the cheapest solution,
  25. 25. or just doing the bare minimum, is a sure fire way to fail.

  27. 27. Hiring people who cost less but are inexperienced...
  28. 28. either with your tech solution or your industry, will never pay off.
  29. 29. 9. Over-relying on consultants.
  30. 30. Relying solely on consultants will leave your people knowledgeless...
  31. 31. ...and out in the cold when it comes to the actual adoption process.
  32. 32. 10. Having poor project management.
  33. 33. Without a strong and dedicated lead,
  34. 34. new technology projects often don’t reach their full potential.
  35. 35. 11.Having ill-Conceived customizations.

  37. 37. your implementation project may disappear down a bottomless rabbit hole.
  38. 38. 12.Having poor communication.
  39. 39. Successful implementation occurs more readily when there is a 100% buy in from major stakeholders and users...

  41. 41. 13.Not testing enough.
  42. 42. First impressions matter.
  43. 43. Launching a piece of poorly tested software can lead to adoption issues, even if problems are fixed later on.

  45. 45. Too often tech is released to users who are unclear on exactly how to use it.
  46. 46. Just because it is intuitive to one group, doesn’t mean it will be for everyone.
  47. 47. 15. Lacking a refinement process.
  48. 48. It will never be perfect on the first release.
  49. 49. Feedback processes allow you to hear directly from users,
  50. 50. which increases the likelihood of greater adoption and increased ROI.
  51. 51. That's all folks!
