    • You submit your objections via one of our chat channels
    • Kevin and I address common objections:
        • “ Socializing vs working” – Kevin
        • “ Control” – Dave
        • “ Accuracy” – Kevin
        • “ Training Relevance” – Kevin
        • “ ROI and Measurement” – Dave
    • We collectively begin to answer your submitted objections and we marvel at the wisdom of the crowd.
  • 7. “ If we introduce social media and social networking, our people will spend most of their time socializing instead of working…” #1 OBJECTION
  • 8. Too Much Socializing with Social Media?
    • What is the problem?
    • Abusers will be abusers
    • Play is OK – Encourage it,
    • but don’t name it
    • Is Twitter Play?
    • Hospital network
    • Wisdom
  • 9. “ If we introduce social media and social networking, who will control the content and how we will control what people say?” #2 OBJECTION
  • 10. Too Much Freedom with Social Media
    • Control is an illusion: 80% of learning happens outside your “control” systems
    • Exposing this learning via social media provides options for influence: correcting, improving, extending
    • People already share bad information
    • People already share information in scary ways
    • Information doubling? Between 1-2 years.
    • Control = disconnect with Western values, economic paradigm, and innovation
  • 11. “ What if they post inaccurate content? How do we make sure that the information is correct?” #3 OBJECTION
  • 12. Content Accuracy
    • Issues of timelines – Pluto
    • Exchange info via the CUBE
    • Greater visibility
    • Hidden experts
    • Moderation where appropriate
    • More accurate
  • 13. “ How is this related to training? A lot of this doesn’t ‘feel’ like training.” #4 OBJECTION
  • 14. Relevance of Social Learning to Training eLearning Business Goals Performance Improvement Learning Training
  • 15. Re-imagining the Scope of Learning Professionals Jay Cross & Harold Jarche http://www.togetherlearn.com/wordpress/2009/02/20/the-future-of-the-training-department/
  • 16. “ All this touchy feely social learning stuff sounds great, but how do you measure it?” #5 OBJECTION
  • 17. ROI and Measurement
    • Measure for results: we measure the wrong stuff today
    • Some ideas:
      • Reduction in turnover
      • Increased sales
      • Higher levels of innovation
      • Faster time-to-competency
      • Increased productivity
    • ONA – what is it and why you should do it
    • Real examples? Ace Hardware, Cisco, Scottrade, Ford
  • 18. Ace Hardware: Productivity Retailer-owned hardware supply cooperative in business for 80 years
  • 19. Time for a conversation…
