AirMouse technology for organizations
AirMouse technology can change the way organizations operate. Generally, most CIOs like the idea of AirMouse implementation, if it is ‘in-line’ with the vision and mission of the company. Most companies follow a calculative approach towards AirMouse implementation. They weigh the relative advantages of the new technology over the conventional one, and only when there is a positive return, they tend to apply the innovation. Other companies would like to follow a phase wise implementation, starting with a few branch offices and later expanding to all the offices. The implementation brings with itself several direct and indirect benefits. Direct benefits are in form of increased employee productivity, decreased

Everyone should be willing to use the new technology of AirMouse and learn how to use it. A formal training plan can be drawn focused on making the employees more comfortable in using the AirMouse technology. Prior to the training, it would be important to understand the present level of competency of the employees.

For example: If his job is to review documents, there is high chance that he might miss to notice errors, if he is not comfortable using the new digital system for scrolling.
• Negative rate of return: There is another serious implication of mishandling. Mishandling might cause damage to the new AirMouse, if the user is not careful with the system. The whole implementation being a costly affair, it would result in a negative return for the organization, if the physical systems get damaged before serving their purpose.
Thus, it is important for the CIO to mitigate both the potential risks, by planning well in advance (Jutte, 2011). The suggested steps would be to imbibe a culture for ‘change’ by educating the staff members of the long term benefits that AirMouse could bring for them. This should be supplemented by a proper streamlined training process, addressing the skill gaps of the employees, for using the new
