Social Computing Training Is All About Changing People’s Behaviours

  1. I agree that many people need to be trained in not how to use the “new generation of tools”, but why they should, and which is the right for the job. When all people had was email, it was simple. Now people need to think about blogs, wikis, microblogging, bookmarking, voting, polls, and on and on. While open sharing via “2.0” tools is a great way to go, it is naive of us to assume it is second nature to employees, especially those that have been in the workforce for a while already.

    1. I couldn’t have agreed more on those comments, Alan! We are on the same boat! Which is why I’m hinting on this blog post that we should not just be talking about educating people on the tools themselves and their features, but more how they can use them effectively as their core business tools to help address current business needs or pain points they may be suffering from.

      It’s not about replacing traditional collaborative tools with new social tools; it’s more about empowering knowledge workers to be back on track with their own productivity taking it into new heights by leveraging the powerful capabilities from these tools, but all of that through a continuous learning process that doesn’t end with a single course: it’s a day to day learning experience of how they can apply social software tools for their own benefit. No one else’s.

      That’s where the challenge is and why I have been really excited about 2.0 Enablement Programs with this kind of flavour; to me, it’s just right on the money!

      Thanks again for dropping by and for the feedback comments! Appreciated, my friend!
