Management 2.0 : gérer la participation dans les communautés d’entreprise

I must also say that the ranking of the most influential individuals on Enterprise 2.0: The 2010 enterprise 2.0 All-Star Blogger Roster (thank you Mark for ranking me in, although my posts were written in french), gave me the momentum to translate some posts once or twice a month.

This first one is related to a conference on Entreprise 2.0 (part of the General Management and Strategy Program) for an audience at HEC Executive Education (HEC is ranked first business school in Europe by the Financial Times). The objective of this article is to share the conference material.
