Talk given at PMI Montreal on December 4, 2013
Web 2.0 technologies are changing entire industries: journalism, music, publishing and television. Yet, our profession remains woefully “stuck in the 80s” when it comes to these various platforms. Due to our lack of leadership in adopting these technologies, we risk becoming irrelevant. Or worse yet: old.
There are many reasons why project managers should be leading the charge in adopting these technologies, chief among them are to facilitate collaboration and to improve communication.
However, there is actually a more compelling reason why we should be at the forefront of the “social entreprise” or Entreprise 2.0: no other profession is better poised to lead the way into the third industrial revolution. That’s right: we can change the world.
This presentation aims to build a convincing case for why Project Managers should be more social media savvy and will propose an action plan on how to do just that.
