#socbizchatInnovation and GrowthHow can social & digital help you foster innovation and growth?
IBM Social Business
Q2: How can you harness the power of imagination, collaboration, and disruptive ideas from your brightest and most passionate employees? http://www.via-cc.at... http://www.via-cc.at...

Stan Phelps
A2. First you understand who are the brightest and most passionate. Your top 20% typically drive 80% of the value #socbizchat
Alison Fether
A2 our #IBMSocialStudy found that identifying employee evangelists is key: ibm.com/ibmcai/socia...
Charting the social universe: Social ambitions drive business impact
The number of companies focused on social capabilities continues to grow, but only 20 percent believe their organization is currently acting truly social. The pioneers are evolving by deploying five distinct clusters of capabilities known as social ...

Promote, Reward those who are driving change and collaboration.. Don't just share what they did but How & Why they did what they did and why it worked so others will take the risk and lead their own change!
Rebecca Wissinger
Take out the middle man! Ideas don't need to be filtered up. Let ideas come from all levels
Stan Phelps
A2. You employ recognition not as an afterthought, but as a true driver of performance.
Vidar Brekke
You need to make it clear that good ideas don't have anything to do with organizational hierarchy in a world that's socially flat
Matt Denning
provide the work culture and platforms that allow for fluid transfer of ideas
IBM Champions
Foster a climate that allows and encourages failures. So people aren't afraid to try new things @IBMSocialBiz
Bob Pulver
A2) need to ensure all realize they are innovation catalysts. We must share ideas, refine them together, find related ones to progress to reality
Brian Fanzo
@rjwissin That is the beauty of collaboration and teamwork... No title makes someone a leader... let those who can lead on certain projects lead no matter their role or job description!
Amber Armstrong
A1) Drive innovation with tools that are personal, remove clutter and connect teams. #esn
Vicki Winters
A2. Ooh ooh, I know this one!
John Furrier
keeping things "out in the open" fosters interactions and "truth"
Athar Afzal
key things to achieve collaboration, imagination & disruptive ideas -> having a culture that's VERY transparent - transparency leads into open communication w/o fear
Brian Fanzo
Failure must be thought of as learning opportunities not something that you will be fired for.... The reward of teaching and leading change must be greater than the risk!
Alison Fether
@iSocialFanz I actually just wrote a blog post about this, "it's not about what you know, it's what you share": https://www-304.ibm....
Jim Canto
A2) Create a SAFE environment where ridicule and politics are NOT part of the equation. Make certain they are not afraid of losing their jobs/paycheck. Stress clouds vision.
Cheryl K. Burgess
A2 Organizations that are committed to culture will win the minds and hearts of their @SocialEmployee
Bob Pulver
A2) everyone has role to play in innovation funnel; but must encourage, reward whatever that contribution is
Amber Armstrong
It's easy to kill innovation in process history #leadership
Camille Brandon
.@IBMSocialBiz A2) Let #millennials know they not only have a voice within your org but that they're also being listened to
Brian Fanzo
@AFether Following you now and will read that blog post after this chat.. Love the topic & excited to collaborate more on it :)
Cheryl K. Burgess
A2 Create a process to capture new product ideas on a regular basis and store them in an idea bank for future reference
Athar Afzal
@iVidar good point - I always so we should now change from promotions on Merit over Longevity in an Org than other way around
Stan Phelps
You empower the brightest and most passionate with opportunity
Matt Denning
positive reinforcement for sharing disruptive ideas with recognition
Cheryl K. Burgess
A2 Align your employees with your mission, vision and values
Vicki Winters
A2. Foster creativity, individuality, exercise not necessarily in that order
Cheryl K. Burgess
A2 It must be WIN/WIN for your employees
Brian Fanzo
Too many organizations what all employees to speak up but they don't let the employees know that their voice is heard and that it matters... Enough talking more action and empowering those who have a voice!
Amy Tennison
A2. Agree with everyone's points. It's hard to imagine a world where there are no job titles. Instead people take on the projects they are most passionate about. #collectivedelegation
Amber Armstrong
@9INCHmarketing agree. and focus on recognition and less on reviews #hr
Alison Fether
@iSocialFanz Awesome! Would love to hear what you think about the post + the #IBMSocialStudy its based on
Athar Afzal
@furrier true - without openness or a culture of openness - people might not feel compelled to share ideas
Cheryl K. Burgess
A2 Brands cannot communicate externally unless they first communicate internally.
Daniel Davis
@mdenning8 Yes, and even just for sharing -- doesn't matter if the idea doesn't pan out.
Rick Liebling
A2 - Give them meaningful opportunity, but also accountability. That builds trust and respect. #socbizchat
Vicki Winters
@AFether Love that! Sharing.I'll read it later!
Cheryl K. Burgess
@AmyTennison Simple recognition is powerful!

@MyBigFatMouth yay! glad to hear it. It's a quote from our CEO and its based on the #IBMSocialStudy
Phylicia Teymer
@iSocialFanz So true Brian! Failure is one step closer to success! Try/ Fail/ Evaluate why / TRY AGAIN! Great inventions are based on initial failed attempts. It's how one learns. Fail fast, LEARN faster!
Carol S. Wells
Host sessions for collaboration and sharing such as lunch and learns. Then, follow that up with spaces where everyone can continue to gain knowledge, such as collaboration sites and jams.

Can an organization, operating in today’s increasingly networked world, choose to ignore the insights of employees, customers, business partners and expect to thrive?

Q1: Millennials will comprise 50% of the workforce by 2020. How can organizations ensure they are properly leveraging this group of workers? http://www.via-cc.at...

Cheryl K. Burgess
A1 #Millennials will truly be taking the reigns of #socbiz in the coming years - They are born collaborators
Cheryl K. Burgess
A1 Challenge is how orgs can better leverage Millennials skills, transparent & tech/digital engagement.
Stan Phelps
A1. Millennials will need to be prepared to be leaders. And at a much faster rate than previous generations. #socbizchat
Brian Fanzo
It starts with collaboration and creating a culture focused on teamwork.. From Leadership to New Hires!

Get mobile and get social; including old company systems

@Yaldez4FSI Agree it's important to talk the same language but also engage where millennials engage.. Social, Mobile, Offline & Online!
Jim Canto
A1) They can stop hanging onto "the good 'ol days." Time to embrace reality and change.
Matt Denning
@Yaldez4FSI older approaches to solve problem will not apply, millennials bring new tools and new mindsets to the equation
Camille Brandon
. I second what @Yaldez4FSI suggested! As a millennial, #social and #mobile are part of my daily life. Orgs need to incorporate that
Cheryl K. Burgess
A1 Empowered @socialEmployee workforce is the future of #SocBiz
Stan Phelps
A1. Leadership is key. Unique challenge to manage cross-generational teams. Millennials need to be up to the challenge #socbizchat
Daniel Davis
@Yaldez4FSI Yes, systems and tools need to reflect the way the workforce works, not the other way around.
Lindsay Malloy
@Yaldez4FSI I agree! Mobile and social are important to me when I choose a company to work for.
John Furrier
Understanding their expectations for the ideal tools/software to interact with others. It's not email or old web based system; Open and collaborative with instant connections is important
Rebecca Wissinger
Listen to them! Ensure they can collaborate across the org. Value different ideas and new ways of doing things #millennials
Cheryl K. Burgess
A1 Many #SocBiz are using reverse mentoring, where employees train leadership how to use social platforms. WIN/WIN for employees to gain visibility.
Camille Brandon
@mdenning8 I think @Yaldez4FSI meant make old systems more #mobile and #social
Rick Liebling
But won't the truly engaged millennials be working for themselves, not big organizations? #socbizchat
Brian Fanzo
Leaders need to go beyond an "Open Door Policy" and come out of the door and engage, communicate and drive collaboration!
Bob Pulver
A1) focus on leveraging the diverse insights of all employees for better decision-making #collectiveintel
Matt Denning
start the steady chant of #silosneedtogo
John Furrier
if you look at MMOGs you'll see how they interact with software in real time. that is the new way they want any tool should be available anytime on any platform on any device
Amy Tennison
@LindsaySkarda So true. I like working at a company that embraces innovation. Not everyone is willing to test, try and learn at a fast pace. We constantly try new ideas.
Stan Phelps
A1. Stat: 70% of people who quit voluntarily, don’t quit their jobs. They quit their boss. Millennials need to be great bosses #socbizchat
Brian Fanzo
Future is community.. no matter the generation leadership and companies must focus on creating new experiences for both internal employees as well as external customers!
Phylicia Teymer
A1: Allow for joint mentorship, cross-collaboration so the generations can learn from one another. Every person has a unique skill and toolset to learn from. #socbizchat
Matt Denning
@Camille_Brandon I totally agree with @Yaldez4FSI to clarify, #mobile and #social would apply to the new tools to harness
Wyatt Urmey
Ready to take on the future of work
Bob Pulver
A1: not a generational issue, but forcing org's to rethink how they operate, which is overdue
Vicki Winters
Speak their language. Visuals.
Camille Brandon
@mdenning8 we're on the same page then haha
Casey Lucas
A1 @IBMSocialBiz @ckburgess - Totally agree with you! #Millennials are born collaborators! #SocBizChat
Brian Fanzo
@MyBigFatMouth Agree.. Understand not only what they are doing but how and why they are engaging or using the technology they are using!
Jim Canto
@RickLiebling Many will...but they all can't. Certain things will require truly organized teams working together. My guess is; Millennials will be far better at "working together" than previous generations have been...provided organizations let go of past.
Vicki Winters
@RickLiebling Quite possible and logical.
Athar Afzal
A1: By respecting their wishes - which I think first will be NOT to have a hierarchical culture but a flat one
Amber Armstrong
A1) Reverse mentoring is a great way to include milllennials and impact #digital acceptance
Rick Liebling
Agree, far better at working together. Just not for legacy organizations.
Rebecca Wissinger
Let millennials define new roles and break down walls in your org
John Furrier
A new digital experience is needed; it's and "integrated stack" of technology for one great outcome = experience
Athar Afzal
@PhyliciaProctor absolutely - and by changing perspectives from promoting people on Merit over Longevity versus other way around
Casey Lucas
A1 #Millennials want to find fulfillment in their work and want their contributions make a difference in the world. #socbizchat
Phylicia Teymer
@atharafzal I think if organizations let creativity/collaboration flourish through employee collaboration, we'll have a WEB of leadership, not a ladder. #socbizchat

How to Keep Millennials From Getting Bored and Quitting
Younger workers expect to have more jobs during their careers than older generations have had. The right work environment can help them stick around
Athar Afzal
@PhyliciaProctor true - and I feel a lot of the successful start-up like Google, Facebook that have that are attracting that talent that appreciates such environment. Not only that - this kind of culture forces you 2 have personal responsibility
Carol S. Wells
Understand how they can be integrated into the culture, not treated as a completely separate group of people.
Carol S. Wells
I love the idea of reverse mentoring posted above.
Amber Armstrong
@cswells3638 I feel like I get reverse mentored every day by @FrankGuardi @AmyTennison
Frank Guardi
@ambarmstrong I am certainly mentored everyday & am glad I can give back some! Learning & aiming to get better everyday.
