  • It is about your business your product and your customers <br /> How, when and where they are receptive to you <br /> [and it better work, be easy to understand and add value to my life] <br /> <br /> <br />
  • The rules of the game we know are not going to really work - we need to learn actively. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Innovation/Learning is messy - it’s not prescriptive – that learning is the key <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> The whole picture has changed not merely changing the light bulb. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Underlying issues: <br /> Behavioral Shift <br /> Different Rules of engagement <br /> Code of Conduct <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Bottomline - We need to have an experimentation and Innovation mindset <br />

  • Setting the tone from the beginning when striving for innovation <br />
  • This is very new stuff <br /> Social Web is in it’s infancy. We thought Web 1.0 was only brochure-wear till we discovered e-commerce. Same hold true for the social web - it’s impact is far and deep and requires building of bridges across industries. <br /> The is more than marketing - it is tearing down organizational and industry silos. <br /> This “conversation” touches deep into your company and up into the boardroom <br />
