CMSWire Tweet Jam The Future of Collaboration SocBizChat

Collaboration comes up frequently in discussions of workplace productivity, but are we all on the same page on what it means? Have the tools introduced in the digital workplace aid collaboration or complicate it? What next steps do businesses need to take to move forward with collaboration? Find out tomorrow during our Future of Collaboration Tweet Jam!

  2. What impact does leadership have on collaboration? Organizational structure?

  4. Where do today's collaboration tools succeed and where do they fall short?
  5. Is collaboration always a positive thing?

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

  • Introduce yourself with your first #socbizchat tweet. Include your name, job title and organization you work for.
  • Subsequent tweets must start with the question number you are responding to and the #socbizchat hashtag. For example, "@bigbird Q4 Tools tied directly to business outcomes will succeed"
  • Please don't pitch products or services -- stay knowledge focused.
  • Keep the discussion professional, but informal.
  • Remember that this is a public chat -- be thoughtful.
