This is funny because it is true. When you see this happening think about what incentive there is for IT to embrace early adoption. Like most things in large organizations, IT is focused on minimizing risk - quite the opposite of early adoption. Bonuses and promotions are based on system reliability, integrity, security (maybe) and project success. Find a way to work new technology adoption into existing goals, such as demonstrating a significant cost savings, or introduce a new incentive like a user satisfaction rating. Or use the direct method, make it a project and then IT is forced to address it. Sometimes IT clings to the old, familiar way of doing things but a tangible incentive will convince it to move. Usually staff-level IT enjoys the challenges of working with the latest tech; they are not the source of risk aversion.

I think that graphic is too optimistic. In the 7th sector should be a little bump - pilot abandoned and the line is flatter

I think we are a little better than this - we really try ;)
