Engaging the Next-Gen Workforce through Collaboration

I'm here reporting from IBM ConnectEd 2015 (@IBMConnect) in Orlando, Florida. Earlier, I posted on my experience on Monday at the Women’s Executive Lunch, hosted by Katrina Troughton (@KatyTroughton), Vice President, Smarter Workforce Solutions at IBM (@IBM). Thanks again to everyone involved. Later on Monday, I attended a panel titled “Creating the Next Gen Workforce through Engaging Employee Experiences,” which featured Christopher Crummey (@ccrummey), W

Michael Sagalyn, Business Development Leader for Social Business at IBM, led the fastest paced session that I attended at IBM ConnectED 2015. I’ll quickly recap the ah-ha’s and then I’m going to put you to work through some recommended actions that will put these ah-ha’s to work for you. 1. You collaborate – so will your apps

60,000+ early adopters and all IBM ConnectED conference attendees will experience IBM Verse starting in February. Dan Davis did a great job of sharing the big news on Monday, so I won’t repeat here. What I WILL share is that IBM Verse was the belle of the ball in Orlando and generated lots of buzz – and even more questions. What is the role of IBM Domino? How and when will the mobile and on-premise experiences deploy? What can developers expect? What is

As IBM ConnectED 2015 got underway today in Orlando, FL, IBM Verse was again in the spotlight, this time during Jeff Schick’s general session on A New Way to Engage. Schick, IBM General Manager of Enterprise Social Solutions, spoke about improving the way we work and collaborate, which is precisely what IBM Verse was designed to do. The operative word here is designed, as IBM Verse was created in a very deliberate, thoughtful manner that re-imagines the inbox to surface the thing

You Are Sitting on a Volcano That Is Ready to Blow
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 12:10p   Colleen Burns
The changes coming to the workplace are huge and can't be overstated. They remind me of Joe’s journey from one of my favorite films of all time, Joe Versus the Volcano. In the movie, Tom Hanks’s character Joe Banks works in a comic rendition of a traditional 20th century workplace where the office workers are treated like cogs in a machine, not human beings with ideas and creative input to help reach objectives. In this dysfunctional setting, communication is only t

Tue, Jan 20th 2015 1:13p   Colleen Burns

Rather than fill out an anonymous automated survey I thought I would take the social business mentality to heart and share my thoughts on this blog. I walked the many floors of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center over the past four days and have spent the last few hours rubbing my feet (see my prior post on NRF 2015), thinking about the recurring themes I heard during the many presentatio
