Back in 2008 and then again in 2013, Gartner stated how between 70% to 80% of Social Business initiatives would fail in the short time frame of a couple of years, mostly due to a lack of purpose and clearly aligned business imperatives. That means that 7 or 8 out of 10 social business programs will eventually fail no matter how hard people may try. What if there was a different way …?
This workshop will cover panagenda’s Enterprise Social Networking Strategy Framework that Luis Suarez has been using effectively with clients and business partners around different social business adaptation techniques to help organizations become successful ‘Socially Integrated Enterprises’. Come and join us to learn what those foundations for success would be like and how you, too, could kick off your own digital transformation initiative in just 6 different steps to start seeing immediate results and real business value, i.e. transform the way we share, learn, collaborate and innovate together to get work done more effectively. Working smarter, not necessarily harder.
With the emergence of Enterprise Social Networking platforms, communities are the new operating model within organisations. They’re the major key accelerators of effective change & transformation initiatives. Yet very few businesses have got successful online community building programmes in place. For most the old adage ‘build it and they will come’ would still apply hoping once they have got the technology in place communities will *just* flourish ‘on their own’. Alas, reality shows us that’s never been the case.
Join us to learn plenty more about the actual Community Building Programme framework that’s been running rather successfully some of the oldest online communities at IBM over the course of the last 21 years and still going strong.
Social adoption is a challenge for many companies. What is the most effective utilization of the environment? Who is using which resources, what in the environment is dormant or orphaned? Where should efforts focus in order to improve adoption? All of these questions can be difficult to answer and there is no “one size fits all” solution as each organization has their own unique needs. Join us to learn how to tackle this topic using IBM Connections and Watson. Starting out with IBM Bluemix Data Connect to collect and combine data from relevant sources, they use the cognitive power of IBM Watson Analytics to answer those tricky questions and provide solutions to real-world adoption challenges.
