    9. 9. Siemens established a global internal social media platform, the so-called TechnoWeb 29.03.11 CT O Open Innovation TechnoWeb: find people 1) to get answers Minimal pre-requisite is to join a network once 2) 1) Do no t expect to find answers directly in TechnoWeb, but expect to find the experts who know the answer! 2) High activity level is not necessary . Indentify experts due to their Activity Stream and memberships Part of the workplace of the future.
    10. 10.
