We are not choosing electively just some speakers or prominent case studies but always try to select people that can contribute something to the big idea of the specific edition of the conference.

Holacracy: Is this the logical step for the evolution of the organization?

There is quite some buzz about a specific organizational governance approach these days – the “Holacracy” model. This week Zappos announced the implementation of this model and now the expert community is arguing about the pros and cons of the approach. Especially as it is labeled to “replace today’s top-down predict-and-control paradigm with a new way of achieving control by distributing power” the Holacracy model seems to be the organizational approach the social enterprise community is asking for so long.

Challenges for the different project types on the way for the Social Enterprise Readiness!

Every year in autumn I have to get my mind clear on what key questions we want to address with the next Enterprise 2.0 SUMMIT and – I can tell you – every year it becomes more difficult – especially as the evolution path towards the somewhat “social and collaborative organization” is not as easy as it was thought to be. But as the vision of the conference is to provide assistance for corporate project leads to advance their projects our task for the conference is still to provide answers.
