One of the basic advantages of Enterprise 2.0 technologies is that work gets divvied up among your social network and you can often take advantage of situations such as this, where Bill Ives has already summarized information that I also wanted to pass along. I’m looking forward to linking up with Bill and a great collection of other speakers and facilitators. Better yet, Francois Gossieaux of Corante has designed the event to maximize interaction among all those attending.
This is a reminder about first Enterprise 2.0 RAVE in New York on My 21 and 22. I have been asked to be a part of this session and I am looking forward to connecting with the other speakers. I have also heard that the attendees so far are very interesting. You will get a $250 discount by using “bloggers” (without quotes) as a discount code during the registration process.
The event will start on May 21 with an informal dinner and a short talk by Andrew McAfee, Harvard Business School professor, who first used the “Enterprise 2.0” term. The Enterprise 2.0 Rave will continue on the 22nd with four sessions, three of which will managed as group brainstorm sessions around the following topics:
Deploying Enterprise 2.0 tools – the adoption issues
Targeting the right business processes for Enterprise 2.0 projects
Getting started with Enterprise 2.0 and how to measure success
The last session will be an interactive wrap-up session involving all the thought leaders who participate in the Enterprise 2.0 Rave. Speakers include many of my fellow Fast Forward bloggers: Jerry Bowles, Kathleen Gilroy, Jevon MacDonald. Jim McGee, Joe McKendrick, Euan Semple. Others include JP Rangaswami, CIO of BT Global Services, Jason Wood, a principal and head of research for RT Capital Management, Susan Scrupski founder of IT Services Advisor, John Musser founder of ProgrammableWeb.com, Jenny Ambrozek, Jeff De Cagna, and Johnnie Moore.
