Understanding Behavior Change to Ensure Success Webinar

9:00 am

Development engineering focuses on the design, delivery and adoption of technology-based solutions. Often behavior change is an essential element of new products or services being successful. Neglecting to consider behavior change early in the design process has led to the failure of many social innovations. However, changing behavior is difficult and many traditional approaches have been found to be ineffective.
This webinar will introduce evidence-based behavior change methods and explore how this technique can help ensure success. See website for more information.
