HR Happy Hour - Episode 54 - 'Enterprise 2.0 and HR' - Thursday July 15, 2010 8PM EDT Enterprise 2.0, defined as 'the use of emergent social software platforms by organizations in pursuit of their goals', has become an increasingly important concept for organizational leaders to understand and leverage. Enterprise 2.0, or E2.0 for short, is changing the way companies interact with customer and communities, how information is shared, created, and consumed, and in many progressive companies, is altering some of the fundamental processes and definitions of work. Certainly the proliferation of tools and platfroms on the social and participatory web, social networks, shared co-creation of knowledge repositories, and the realization of the power of networks have begun to impact the inner working environments of many organizations today. Success in E2.0 projects is much more about understanding and influencing people - their behavior, habits, and the collection of shared beliefs and practices that shape an organization's culture. Hey - those sound quite a bit like the topics that a great HR leader should not only understand, but should be able to help shape. In fact, many of the fundamental pillars for lasting success with E2.0 seem to be squarely in the HR pro's sights. So why does it seem like HR has been largely missing from the E2.0 conversations? How come HR seems to have ceded this ground to the IT folks? What can and should a savvy HR leader be doing not only to become more aware of the capability and potential of E2.0, but also to help lead organizational efforts. Joining us on the show will be Professor Andrew McAfee, the author of 'Enterprise 2.0 : New Collaborative Tools For Your Organization's Toughest Challenges'. Professor McAfee coined the term 'Enterprise 2.0', and is the most influential thought leader in the space. I hope you can join us for what should be a interesting and informative show.
