ENTERPRISE 2.0: A PROGRESS REPORT AND PROPOSED RESEARCH AGENDA
Andrew McAfee, Harvard Business School
This talk will discuss Enterprise 2.0, or the use of emergent social software platforms within organizations. In addition to providing examples and case studies, the talk will propose a theoretical base for framing the impact of Enterprise 2.0. The presentation will conclude by giving open questions that are of interest to practitioners in this area, and describing how these questions could be addressed by academic research.
