“Getting your human beings on board with the new technology. Change is really hard, especially the kind that makes you have to work harder.”

Chris Joyce

“The biggest barrier for existing companies when it comes to adopting new technology is it will be a change from the norm. Employees do not embrace change, especially when it comes to technology.”

Adam Linnemann

“The biggest barrier is first “cost” then proper, quick implementation!”

Jerry McKay

“Getting your people to accept change!”

“Overcoming gravitational pull toward the status quo.”
