Social Media & Organizational Change: Disruptor or Facilitator? An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today January 22nd at 12pm EST / 9am PST
Do social tools create new organizational hurdles for your company, or can they help you work better?
The continued growth and penetration of social media as a communications tool is changing the game board for all businesses, challenging executives to understand where and how organizational change must take place in order to take advantage of the new marketing and communications landscape. But the same social technologies that are disrupting business structures can also offer opportunities to facilitate and smooth the process of organizational change itself, as well as, some argue, improve productivity and make for happier employees.
Join us as we examine the processes that businesses are going through as they bring social practice inside as an essential element of organizational change. Our panelists will deal with questions such as:
Where in the company does change need to begin?
Where does policy come into the change process?
Does social media call for a Center of Excellence to focus on optimizing effectiveness?
Does the CEO need to buy into social tools for change to take hold?
