I thought Christian Pikus had an interesting presentation and one that might be followed up with a clinic or presentation on "How To Make Change The Status Quo." In short, how to introduce new technologies and maake sure they are used by employees, etc. Perhaps several ASIS&T members could assess what they did in introducing new technologies into the workplace and then assess what worked and what did not and why. Plus David Shumaker has an interesting presentation based on a 1970s presentation by Weill that is still relevant.
