Long back, in his first law of motion, Newton spoke about Inertia. So that’s it, Inertia it is. But Newton did change his position, on external force, once hit by Apple on his head. Now we know, pain can cause change.
2. Explicit pain works.
Ask frontline sales guys about what this means and how it forces a buy. Explicit pain often provides the required force to cause change. So digging a few levels down to bring the pain visible to team might work in finding force.
3. Perceived risk is a bitch
To be alone attempting alien stuff can be spooky. Find company, adoption may get triggered faster. With comfort that many will fail, many actually will attempt. One good way to accomplish this is to ensure that enough team members try new tech together.
