Social Media - Changing the way we work

The discussion is not brand-new, but the discussion seems to accelerate in the corporate world: How do we deal with the fact that more and more people start using Social Media in- and outside the work context? What does this change mean for us as professionals, what does it mean for a company?

In my opinion especially training professionals are challenged: They have to somehow leverage the gap between the generations - however you want to define them (I don't by age but by mind-set). Here the 'digital-savvy' there the 'digital dinosaur', both in the same training session, prepared to learn relevant content or behaviour for their job. Even though training professionals always knew that people learn differently, I think the change that happens at the moment is an important one. It is probably not enough just to integrate Youtube Videos into a traditional training setting to be up to date.

These and other topics were touched upon at the following workshop: http://sansch.wordpress.com/2010/09/02/workshop-unterlagen-social-media-changing-the-way-we-work/
