Adoption of innovation and the success of the implementation of that innovation is dependent upon the institution’s ability to address stakeholders’ needs. To prepare for the implementation of a new Learning Management System, full-time and part-time faculty were surveyed regarding their need for technology skills acquisition and for professional development. The study was designed to obtain perceptual data, to obtain a snapshot of current technology skills, and to gather attitudinal data in regards to the future implementation of the new LMS. As a result, an implementation plan was devised on five key findings: 1) application and understanding of adoption of innovation, 2) need for communication with all stakeholders, 3) need to build a learning community, 4) need for regional and school representation through infusion of a coach/mentor model, and 5) the need for marketing and promotion to the institution.
