Watch your local Pee-wee football team’s practice sometime and you’ll see a lot of dropped passes, missed tackles, and other mistakes. But…what would happen if you put that team on Heinz Field and they had all the same amenities as the Pittsburgh Steelers? Yep, they still wouldn’t be able to complete a pass, kick a field goal or hold onto the ball. Clearly, just because they were put on a better field and given the latest equipment doesn’t mean they will suddenly learn to play football.
Similarly, simply adding the latest Enterprise 2.0 platform behind your firewall doesn’t mean your employees will suddenly learn to collaborate with one another. Collaboration doesn’t happen because you install the latest Enterprise 2.0 or Social Business software. It happens because they have a reason to collaborate. It happens when they are rewarded for sharing information. It happens when they like working with the people around them. In this webinar, learn the secrets to getting your employees to share and collaborate with one another. Here’s a hint – it’s not about the technology, it’s about your people!
