The classic way of identifying, developing, testing and rolling out new technology relies on management to identify a bottleneck and set a deadline, product management to scope the issue and develop the requirements and then the development time “sprints” through an agile process to deliver the goods. Once the solution was rolled out, the employees suddenly had another process with which they had to comply.
Now, however, there is a better way. IT and development leaders can crowdsource roadblocks from their audience as well as their teams instead of guessing what to address, which will tell them exactly where technology can automate processes and solutions in order to make it easier for their employees. The result? Solutions employees actually need that are built the best for your organization.
Join Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin, as he discusses how crowdsolving and automation can revolutionize your business. Specifically, expect to takeaway:
•Examination of past and current ways of handling development
•Identification of ways to avoid bottlenecks
•Examples of successful crowdsourcing
•Best practices for technology automation
•Solutions for employee-driven initiatives
