Lessons Learned “What to use when” should be made as easy as possible. A single, consolidated social platform is critical Executives impact adoption by role modelling the use of the tools – Many executives need individual “reverse” mentoring – Their staff also need to be trained separately Use of the tools should be integrated with business processes – Business units need special consultation for how to do this integration – Capturing and publishing business value is crucial Some geographies need special customization to realize business value Privacy issues are core to social computing and require early attention and systematic focus. ©2011 IBM Corporation
