As you may know, I’m heading to Europe at the end of next week for a two week workshop tour. When the tour was originally under design, the intent was to align it with Social Connections VI – which at one point was going to be held in mid May. But the dates got shifted, and it’s now in mid-June. I very much enjoyed participating in Social Connections V in Zurich last June, so would have loved to participate again … but it isn’t to be this time.
Anyway, the Social Connections VI production team has recently published the schedule for the two day conference in Prague (June 16-17). It is looking great, and there are a number of sessions I would attend were I there. It’s always good to hear current case studies, learn about adoption approaches, and how to make IBM Connections work in organizational life.
There is also a third day available at the conference, for a post-conference workshop. Luis Suarez is presenting From Adoption to Adaptation, From Enablement to Engagement on Wednesday April 18. Here’s the overview of the workshop:
What if instead of “driving” adoption within your organisation, you could inspire and facilitate adaptation instead? What if you would have the means to re-define a new way of working with your fellow colleagues and peers through that very same adaptation to become a successful Socially Integrated Enterprise? What if that methodology, good practices, extensive expertise and know-how would all be at your fingertips, so you could apply it right away? What if you knew the nuts and bolts of getting your management and senior leadership teams all involved right from the start to help facilitate the final social business transformation you have always been looking for? Are you ready?
Come and join us on this one day masterclass to find out and learn how you can get the most out of your IBM Connections deployment to begin, or continue, that transformation journey into becoming a successful Social Business.
I really like discussing social business adoption and effectiveness with Luis – which we’ve done at IBM Connect 2013, in London in October 2013, and by Skype just recently. You should attend the workshop if you’ll be at the conference. I would be attending if I was there.
