Micro-Blogging is Good for Leadership, Good for Your Culture

Dan Pontefract

I personally don’t care what tool, application or technology is being used to drive enterprise-wide micro-blogging, but it must be secure and ideally it’s behind the firewall. Occasionally, they chime in on discussions in town halls, or potentially through ratings and discussions on the company intranet or wiki. Providing information that is timely, be it formal, informal or in fact social / community driven. To me, it’s a natural example of both informal and social learning.

In its place enters social and informal learning hubs like on-demand content, live online discussions, wikis and forums, and searchable content archives.

Luis Suarez

. You may still remember how a while ago I put together over here a couple of blog posts, where I was talking extensively about the Social Business Adaptation Framework I’m currently using when working with clients in their various different change initiatives as part of their own Social Business journey. That’s why the third pillar of the Social Business Adaptation Framework I keep using all the time has always been about building a solid library of use cases.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

2) How do you sale to the NON-Gen Y's and Millennials who are in upper management who fear things like wiki's? Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists).

Luis Suarez
