Organizations are getting more involved with social media as tools and channels but inevitably the question of “now what?” always comes up. What do organizations do with their communities? How do they do they solve business problems? And how do they evolve into social businesses that collaborate with their employees, customers, and partners to solve business problems?

This session will provide attendees with a solid understanding of what a social business is, how collaboration impacts business performance across the enterprise, and how organizations can move beyond just social media to evolving their organizations into a social business. The key here is to look at social as a long term strategic business initiative instead of as a short term marketing or PR initiative.
