This case study deals with technology diffusion. XYZ is a small software development company, established in 1970. Their products commanded a good brand value in the market.

In this context, the company’s General Manager (GM) decided to buy new technologies and introduce them in the company. When he discussed this matter with company’s employees, they were not enthused because they had to learn new skills to master new technologies. They were comfortable with old skills and showed their reluctance towards new skills. They also though that new technologies may make them redundant. One of the employee also said that the new technologies will add to the company’s costs. After

considering all the opinions and suggestions, GM took a decision. He selected two employees who showed an inclination towards learning new things and sent them for training to ABC software company.

For any doubts or clarifications, they could freely consult the two employees who had received training at ABC company. The GM felt happy that all the employees had no difficulty working on the new software. The good leadership qualities exhibited by the GM led to the introduction of new software and its acceptance in the company. In the year of 1996, the company bagged a project that especially required the assistance of the new software being introduced. Since all the employees were trained to work on the new software, the new project was successfully completed in a record time.
