Whenever a company implements any sort of change it
can be difficult to manage. With Intelligent Automation
it can be especially difficult as the idea behind Bots
can incite skepticism and even fear. Join this workshop
to learn the best techniques to decrease company
distraction as well as enable a smooth transition. You
will first hear a case study than divide into focus groups.
The group will than come back together and map
out what they learned and how they will implement
