Success Factors: What traditional business really needs to know about Web 2.0
Presented by Joshua Ross
The business world is experiencing successive waves of disruption caused by new
trends and technologies; from publishing to media and entertainment, software
development to financial services and healthcare, entire industries are being
transformed by the Internet. With Web 2.0 technologies gaining traction, these
rates of change are likely to only increase as new forms of collaboration-enabled
by technology--unlock the creative capacity of people across the globe. Within
such an environment, learning and leadership are survival skills.
While most organizations recognize the need to address these changes, their
responses are typically anemic and inclined to failure. Most strategies fails
for the same, simple reasons:
-A heavy reliance on outside expertise
-A basic failure to understand the shift in organizing principles and mindsets
that define Web 2.0 companies.
Based on direct experience consulting in the field, and backed by O'Reilly's
thought leadership on Web 2.0, this webcast is for the rest of us: executives
and professionals working in "traditional" (non-Internet native) business trying
to take advantage of new trends. We'll explore the underlying organizing
principles and success factors in building and executing a Social Web strategy,
-New ways of listening
-A focus on relationship building
-Creating "Open" strategies
