Management 2.0 : storytelling and community

storytellingLast week my blog post was already about storytelling, but more about the vision. Today it’s more about the benefits of this « technique/skill » in the context of a community. In fact, words are the link and the sociable binder of these communities, even more when they are virtual, the distance distending the physical link.

  • surinformation
  • fragmentation du savoir
  • incertitude
  • changement rapide
  • dilemmes complexes
  • compétitivité

Véritable boîte à outils, ce livre répond à ces différents défis, car une entreprise 2.0, c’est avant tout un changement culturel et pas d’entreprise 2.0 sans collaborateur 2.0
