Improved collective performance: Investing in Web 2.0 - Knowledge Board

We are all very familiar with social networking platforms such as MySpace, Flikr, YouTube, Twitter, Bebo and Facebook. They are almost household names. This is not so of a new generation of social networking technology, which is being used to provide software services under trading names such as Ning, CollectiveX, Sossoon, Hiitch, Huddle, Mzinga, British Telecom's Workspace (project management), Clearspace, and even Microsoft's Sharepoint.

How does management respond to this? Traditional senior and middle managers, who have been taught to assure operational predictability by securing tight control over workforce behaviour and events, must be prepared to manage in a different and more subtle way. The reward for a controlled implementation, approached with a high degree of professionalism, is a system which will likely reap benefits for all involved.
