  • wsoucie Wendy Soucie, Applied social media strategy for B2B, Global eBusiness, Social Media Strategist, LinkedIn Trainer, Business Development, at Parker Hannifin | Motion and Control Technology One thing not often discussed is how can we move larger enterprise organizations that restrict social media to be open to use this channel. In a presentation I gave last year, several PMs from larger organizations in WI commented that they felt the topic was not relevant since they couldn't access social tools at work. They didn't like the answer I offered about trying to find touch points for team members while away from work.

    However in researching several PM industry blogs, there is an undercurrent of advice that PMs need to step outside the box ( and the internal network restrictions) and use the tools that might make you more efficient. More efficient at developing the relationships that might help the communication paths you need for good projects.

    While I am not a project manager I wonder if this will really happen. The overall reaction I got a this meeting attended by 150 people, was social media tools don't actually help me manage the tasks and reporting I am paid to do, I don't care if I understand people better, I just need to deliver the project.

    I would like to think that your presentation might change minds. Thanks for posting.

  • earthpm earthpm We had Bas give this presentation to a web-based seminar for about 1,000 project managers for our celebration of International PM Day. Bas was terrific and this turned out to be one of our most highly-rated session in the 3 years of the webinar so far. And that is up against tough competition, with the other speakers being top leaders in the field of PM. Highly recommended. 3 years ago

  • hudali15 Ali Anani, PhD, Managing Partner at Phenomena Communications Hi Bas, great stuff! It is simple words that carry deep meanings. Truly, it is not only migrating to a different virtual domain; it is also about subsequent changes that cascade. You remind me when I first moved to the UK to study. It was not only about changing places; it was more about adapting to new environment, building trust, communicating properly in a new culture and language and so on. Migrating to a virtual world brings hard facts that you explained softly 3 years ago

  • papercutpm Geoff Crane at Geoff Crane Thanks tons for this, Bas. I agree with many of your points, especially your last point that essentially, it's not the tool but how it's wielded. I remain unconvinced that social media is effective in a project environment, mainly because the culture of people adopting it have to be receptive to the concept as a community. They have to want it. Jamming it down their throats will have less efficacy.

    That being said, there's a case to be made that leaders need to be better salespeople to their project teams.

    Thanks again!!
