The social media phenomenon has gathered a significant amount of momentum over the last few years. More than 87% of medium-to-large organizations have implemented, or are testing, piloting or evaluating at least one intranet tool. Just about everyone wants to rollout social media, but not everyone understands how to do so most effectively and how it can significantly enhance the internal communications within an organization.

Does the brave new world of social media and Web 2.0 excite as well as concern you? Given the runaway popularity of Twitter, Mashups, Facebook, blogs, and many other web-based forms of communications and networking, perhaps you have been wondering about the possibilities and the risks for your organization?

Join this interactive workshop and learn proven ways of identifying the right technologies or social media platforms to achieve your organization’s strategic objectives. In addition, you will:

  • Learn the real numbers on what is being done (and not done) from Prescient’s annual Intranet 2.0 Global Study

  • Review case study examples of blogs, wikis and other social media tools from IBM, Cisco, Sony, Siemen’s, and others

  • Gain knowledge from lessons learned and get key recommendations for undertaking an Intranet 2.0 and internal branding initiative

  • Dispel the confusion and discover the exciting promises as well as the challenges of using Web 2.0 tools
