The Power of Organizational Purpose
Accelerating Innovation with Engaged Employees
Organizations that harness the power of “Social Business” with engaged employees driven to add value to their market will increase their levels of success moving into the future.
During one of OpenText’s Exploring Organizational Purpose events, I had an opportunity to talk with Scott from OpenText about real innovation in the Enterprise. I don’t have the authorization to write about all of his amazing thoughts, however, I can summarize it in one word. The single word that summarizes real innovation in the Enterprise is, “Connected“.
Breakfast with Michael Edson
Michael Edson ( @mpedson ) gave an entertaining and intelligent presentation at the Exploring Organizational Purpose #purposeBiz event in Washington, DC. Michael is a living example of “passion with purpose”. He shared his ideas about the “power of now” and how to fan the flames of passion in organizations to fuel real innovation.
Michael also shared additional thoughts about “Crowd Accelerated Innovation” and Openess here.
Marisa Peacock (@marisacp51) wrote about this event in her article, “Going Boldly Into the Present with Michael Edson“.
Breakfast with John Seely Brown
John Seely Brown ( @jseelybrown ) is Co-Director of Deloitte’s Center for the Edge. His research and insight into how we as a society are learning to live in an age of constant flux is masterfully structured and presented. [more]
I am a huge fan of John Seely Brown’s work and believe you will discover many tips and ideas you can apply to your organization in this video, “Collaborative Innovation by John Seely Brown“.
The hotel where this event was hosted had internet issues, but John’s video should be available soon. In the meantime you can see John sharing how tech is changing education and society in this video.
Breakfast with Andrew McAfee
Andrew McAfee ( @amcafee ) coined the Term Enterprise 2.0 five years ago. Since then, he has researched, written and reported widely on the capacity of individuals and teams, the types of problems collaboration can solve. This event scheduled for November 1, 2011 will sell out fast, so RSVP now.
These events sponsored by OpenText show us the future of Social Business. Organizations that seek to deeply engage with their community will emerge as leaders in their field.
What if every organization offered events where people can connect and share ideas?
This could unlock real innovation to solve problems in our everyday lives.
