KIRKLAND, Wash. (April 26, 2010) - Ethan Yarbrough, president and co-founder of Allyis, Inc. and Ken Efta, co-founder and principal consultant and solutions architect, Allyis, Inc. are presenting at the Innotech NW CIO Summit in Portland, Ore. May 6. They will speak to executive level IT professionals about how to dismantle societies of strangers at work by integrating social technologies to increase collaboration and nurture an Enterprise 2.0 culture.
Employees are using social media and collaborative tools in their personal lives and expect them to be available and utilized in their job. Yarbrough and Efta will discuss how, while some companies are still debating the value of social media and whether they’ll allow employees to use social technologies on the job, others are plowing ahead, using social networking and internal social computing practices to their competitive advantage. They’ll show how those companies are sharing knowledge, engaging employees, inspiring innovation, recruiting top talent and seeing increased business opportunities as a result of social computing strategies.
Efta will show how, through organizational design and social technographics, IT leaders can design business strategies, intranets, portals, blogs and wikis that capitalize on their organization’s culture and nurture Enterprise 2.0 adoption. Attendees will learn how to dismantle “societies of strangers” at work, uncover knowledge and build relationships that engage employees and lead to measurable ROI as organizational knowledge expands and surfaces.
Yarbrough and Efta will provide valuable case studies and specific steps that can be taken immediately to integrate and deploy social tools.
