TECHNOLOGY & BEHAVIOR CHANGE  (Workshop & Keynote)

Technology has the power to change human behavior. It has become almost commonplace now for us to change the way we do things the instant technology adapts to serve particular needs. Once the technology is there to provide a new and better solution, that change becomes permanent and we never look back. Can we truly change behavior through applications? Having worked with various app companies and startups that are trying to build that global app that will change the world, we will explore case studies of how even the best application will not change behavior based on attitude and beliefs. The difference comes down to whether the behavior is a “wanna” versus a “hafta.”

Value: audience learns how technology impacts behavior and how to best posture technology to improve an organization
