Winning With The Enterprise 2.0
June 20, 2007
STEVE WYLIE: Out next speaker is Don Tapscott, who is Chief Executive of
New Paradigm, a company he co-founded in 1993. Don is one of the world's
leading authorities on business strategy and organizational transformation.
He's authored or co-authored over 11 books to date, and his new book is called
Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything. A couple of
factoids on the new book, Wikinomics. It's been out for about ﬁve months
now, and for most of that time it's been on several best selling lists including
the New York Times best selling list. And it's currently being translated into
19 different languages. So it's a privilege to have Don joining us today. Please
welcome Don Tapscott. DON TAPSCOTT: Thanks, Steve. I think I'm going
to stand down here, if that's okay. It sort of feels a bit like the Politburo up
here. I'm delighted to be here, and I really mean that actually. Last night I took
the 15-hour ﬂight from LA to New York and arrived in New York at 4:00 am.
But I think sleep is a highly overrated thing anyway, along with protein, other
stuff like that. I'm seriously delighted to be here because I buy totally this idea
that the enterprise is moving into a second generation. And it's wonderful that
there's a conference that's exploring these issues.
