I followed the tweets from the Social Business Strategy Summit in London last week. I didn’t get to go as 1. I was busy, 2. they didn’t invite to speak and 3. I’ve been getting increasingly irritated by how much focus there is on IT in these events to the exclusion of all else. It’s absolutely not that I’m against technology, but it doesn’t need to be the starting point! (see it’s not not not about the technology).
This event followed pretty much the same pattern, but there were some interesting points on HR’s role in social business, eg:
I do think some of the remarks were unfair – HR (or more precisely often OD) is doing some great work in this area. But I do wish HR practitioners would show more interest in the non-HR areas of social business too.
