How to Drive Maximum Business Value from Social Media!

From Sandy Carter, one of the leaders of IBM’s groundbreaking Social Business initiative

Align organizational goals and culture
Gain social trust

Using social media, tools, and techniques, you can build a profound Social Business: one that is more dynamic, collaborative, efficient, and customer-driven--and far more successful. To capitalize on this monumental opportunity, however, you must deeply infuse the techniques and ethos of social collaboration throughout your organization.

 

In Get Bold, IBM social media pioneer Sandy Carter presents a comprehensive framework for transforming your business into a winning Social Business. Carter’s proven six-step AGENDA addresses goals, culture, governance, listening, trust, engagement, experience, processes, reputation/risk management, analytics, and even globalization.

 

Packed with detailed workstreams, expert guidance, and real case studies, Get Bold can help you radically improve the way you operate--in areas ranging from innovation to cost reduction, customer relationships to talent management.

  • Identify the transformations needed to become a Social Business
  • More fully leverage internal and external networks you already have
  • Engage customers with “integrated, interactive, and identifying” experiences
  • Use social techniques to streamline, extend, and improve your processes
  • Manage the risks of deeper connections with clients and employees
