Change is Good
Twitter and the rest of the web is buzzing about the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston starting June 22, 2009. A lot of amazing people gathered in Washington DC for the Government 2.0 Summit, Platform For Change. Good people are doing incredible things that are changing the world as we know it. We have embarked on a journey of global transformation.
The Magic of Change
We seem to spend a lot of time talking about adoption rates and ROI when working with organizations and people using Enterprise 2.0 tools. I have found countless sites with fancy charts and graphs along with endless text explaining the value of these technologies in the Enterprise. I have also helped many people in a wide age range with various backgrounds learn about and use Social Media. Enterprise 2.0 is different than Social Media, but people are the same when you relate to them in ways that transcends age and background. I have not met anyone that wants to do things the harder way. Life and work is easier when we have fluid communication and collaboration. Real relationships and understanding current culture will clear the path to transformation.
I wanted to share some key points from Peter without the details because I want you to visit his site.
- We all have choices
