Featured Session: From Words to Action: You've Heard the Buzzwords, Now It's Time to Get Started on Your Social Journey - A Roadmap, with Michael Sampson

There's no shortage of social buzzwords to bandy around at meetings, but the crucial leadership task is to envision a new reality for your organisation. How can you move from the words of social business to getting started on your journey with making new social business approaches to working accepted, embraced, and championed at your organisation? You need a roadmap to action - and in this session Michael will give you one that starts with an understanding of social technology, moves to outlining the vision of where to apply new social business tools, and then how to think about the things that make a real difference - such as strategies for governance, engagement, and user adoption.

Doing Business with IBM Connections - A Workshop for Business Managers, Business Analysts, and IT Professionals Looking to Make the Most of Connections at their Organization
with Michael Sampson

AUSLUG is excited to include a new tack-on aimed at business leaders presented by one of the world's leading collaboration strategists: Michael Sampson

The Doing Business with IBM Connections workshop provides a forum for quickly exploring real-world applicability of IBM Connections in organisations today. The workshop presents ten core collaboration scenarios that business people do on a day-to-day basis, and examines how to bring each of these to life in IBM Connections 4. The scenarios include co-authoring documents, managing meetings, running projects, and making decisions. Each of the ten collaboration scenarios are explored, with live demonstrations to bring each of the scenarios to life. Attendees do more than just hear the ideas; they also get to see each of the scenarios being worked out before their eyes.

The workshop is presented by Michael Sampson, an independent collaboration strategist from New Zealand. Michael is the author of five books on collaboration strategy, governance for collaboration, and user adoption for new collaboration tools and approaches. This workshop is based on Michael's forthcoming book, Doing Business with IBM Connections (see details).
