He indicates that, in order to accomplish major changes in information technology, you must focus on three areas: tools, knowledge sills, and motivation.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the interview was the observation that, when it comes to behavioral change, some anxiety is not all bad.

Involving participants in the change is always a good idea.

Further training in the workplace can reduce the anxiety mentioned above.
