Can Business Become Social?

A social business is collaborative, networked and non-hierarchical. Tools for achieving that abound, but are organizational cultures ready? Companies have already begun to employ social tools and techniques to their marketing and customer service efforts. But can they transform how they think and work to extend social innovations into other key areas of operations and management such as supply chain, talent management, product development and even business strategy?

On Thursday, June 30th at 12:30pm EST, IBM will host a live online discussion on the IBM GBS Livesteam Channel with social business luminaries that will discuss the viability and challenges of businesses becoming socialized.  Joining this discussion are:

John Jordan - professor of IT Strategy at Penn State and expert on global business model innovation and human-centric information fusion

Elizabeth Lupfer - Chief Blogger at The Social Workplace and HR Technology for Verizon

Sara M. Roberts
- President & CEO, Roberts Golden Consulting and Author of Light Their Fire: Using Internal Marketing to Ignite Employee Performance and Wow Your Customers

Paul Beaulieu - Associate Partner IBM Global Business Service’s Interactive team where he designs, develops and implements social media, social computing and other customer experience strategies

The World Wide Open: Embracing a connected economy

Technology is now driving more organizational change than any other force — even the economy. New connections are bringing great expectations. The view that technology is primarily a driver of efficiency is outdated, and CEOs now see technology as an enabler of collaboration and relationships — those essential connections that fuel creativity and innovation.  

Join our discussion on transparency, collaboration and the new leadership agenda for senior leaders and executives.

Leading thinkers discuss the “dynamics of disruptive innovation” on this live video panel from IBM. Innovating from the ground up is one way to shake things up, says Navi Radjou, co-author of Jugaad Innovation.  Appliance maker Haier, for example, discovered that washing machines in rural China were getting clogged because farmers were using them to wash sweet potatoes. Their response? Make the machines  with larger pipes that can accommodate both clothing and potatoes.
