  • Disconnect is deep and wide – with youth and services; workers and workers; organizations and organizationsData and Research Gap; who’s doing what – signs of change i.e. Data StationDisruptiveness and ComplexityDigital Literacy – widening dividePoverty and Homelessness riding on a thin illusionary veil – growing awareness of poverty in our neighbourhoods and communitiesCapacity Building/ASSETS/PSD/ WorksKnowledge Sharing/COPs/KM/CBRCloud Organizations – flattening structures/more transparency/fluid/small units/fast response/ - check shaping your organization rather than planning your organization.Social Network EnterprisesYork Region’s population is growing by over 40,000 per year.40% of our population is not Canadian born (2001)Over 65 languages are spokenOur population is aging with a 400% increase in seniors projected by 2026 (66,295 in 2001 to 263,000 by 2026)Over 50% of the people living under the low income cut-off have jobs
  • Cloud Organizations and Networks - – flattening structures/more transparency/fluid/small units/fast response/ - check shaping your organization rather than planning your organization; cloud workers are understand networks, identities, working for causes & community, capable of adapting, loyal but capable of switching loyalties; etc.Change your organization's culture, work style, and tools to \"look more like a cloud.   He said:If you can permute your organization so that it looks more like the cloud, you’ll have an easier time working with the cloud. Case in point: because of ‘message discipline’, only a very few people are allowed to speak for an organization. Yet, because of the exponential growth in connectivity and Web2.0 technologies, everyone in your organization has more opportunities to speak for your organization than ever before. Can you release control over message discipline, and empower your organization to speak for itself, from any point of contact? Yes, this sounds dangerous, and yes, there are some dangers involved, but the cloud wants to be spoken to authentically, and authenticity has many competing voices, not a single monolithic tone.Communities of Practice/Learning CommunitiesKnowledge Mobilization Research and Community Community Based ResearchStory TellingThe Conversation is Social MediaPositive Youth Development; Development Assets; Resiliency Framework – supported by longitudinal studies as success
  • This is a transformative process that is long term; Transparencies and Authenticity are integral aspects of this transformation; Social networking is bringing new technology innovations to communications – multimedia, presence; interactivity etc.; Collective Intelligence and Customer experience will lead innovation; Change is sociological rather than technological POST – a systematic framework for establishing an organizations online social media plan.We use a collaborative rather than solo consulting approach. This is important in both understanding all the problems the web is meant to solve, and to glean solutions and useful ideas from different aspects of your organization.
