In this episode, Naomi chats to ACM Master Rob Ferdinands about technology and tools.

Rob has had over 20 years' experience in well-known Australian and international companies in change management. He had lead change management teams, been the sole change management practitioner on projects and has mentored internal people to set up new change management teams for success. He has deep skills in SAP and uses the Human Synergistics culture diagnostic tools. 

Naomi says: “During the discussion, I had with Rob, he quotes Norwegian diplomat Christian Louis Lange who made the statement that “Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master” in his 1921 acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize (an award Lange received for the advancements of technology in the 20th century). Rob shares his dreams of what I called a new “change learning system” tool that could advance our change management practice. Rob advises us to “start with the end in mind”, as Covey says, in designing our change-specific technological solutions.
