Learn how to get users of technology to buy-in and invest themselves in new technology. Learn what the lawyers and advocates you are working with need and how you can meet that need. Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Florida have all completed different needs assessments and worked with probono.net to improve what is possible for the communities they serve. This session will explore how to assess and meet the changing needs of users and how to ensure that the process for deploying new technologies is inclusive, collaborative, and transparent. Participants will workshop effective ways to involve their essential stakeholders. As Dale Carnegie wrote, “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”
