Managerial implications of a Zip-filed world
Format: Oral presentation 45 min | Language: English | Tags: business
What does today’s real-time, always-on global connectivity mean for business leaders in practice? This session looks at the use of social tools in the corporate world and the managerial approaches that have succeeded or failed. Sharing, co-creation and collaboration may be common outside the workplace but behind the firewall, old managerial habits die hard. Fears around time-wasting, confidentiality and regulatory compliance are understandable, but often overblown. The truth is, nothing blunts a firm’s competitive advantage more than being “anti-social”.
