The creators and consumers of collaborative & social technologies are at a crossroads. Before them appears a question they need to answer if they want to take this to next level. The question is, “Can we do better?” The right answer to that question is: YES!
This community will forever be connected. Creating, sharing, experiencing things from faraway places, have allowed us to “Come as we are,” so to speak. It’s an all inclusive club. “You, have an idea? Great! Let’s hear it.” You are in. That easy. So why is the rate of innovation currently, stuck in neutral?
We are too busy. We have a lot going on. I don’t have time to innovate- I’ve got a day job to do. The solution to that problem is make time. Your manager wants you to innovate? Then tell him this, “Our culture needs to change. Let’s set up a weekly time where we bring in everyone in a room for two hours and have it.” In this meeting you can set the tone by saying “This is an inclusive group. Every idea is welcome. It is ok to fail.”
The E2 Innovate event next month can be that platform to help ignite those ideas which are forming in your mind. David Carr’s Social & Enterprise Collaboration track will educate you on how collaborative culture environment in the workplace will lead to grand ideas and increase in revenue. Maribel Lopez’s Mobility track, will discuss how mobile is changing our business processes, applications and services. It’s all about SoLoMo!
Be curious and join us as we get together in Silicon Valley, where it’s all happening. Don’t forget the importance of physical communities or gatherings! Register now and save $200 on the onsite price of Conference passes or get a free expo pass with code JQBlog.
