- Brown Bag Lunches
- Dedicate at least some actual work time to it.
- Partition Work
This will have costs. At the least you need to do a minimal amount of evaluation, and spend some time up front learning new technologies chosen via evaluation. You may also find that the new technology is no good after you build, and have to rebuild using your older technology. If you're working with more than one new technology, you may run into a situation where you're unclear which technology is bad, and might mistakenly decide all of them are bad.
- Force out old technologies
- Force in new technologies
Both of the last two approaches aren't really evaluation approaches, they need to be used in conjunction with an evaluation approach. But, having either policy will certainly stimulate the evaluation.
