nGenera (Moxie Software) Executive and Top 50 Business Thinker Tammy Erickson to Deliver Opening Keynote at Enterprise 2.0 Conference in San Francisco
Erickson to present “What Business Executives Really Think About E2.0”
Austin, Texas – October 27, 2009 — nGenera Corporation™, a provider of collaboration software solutions and services, today announced that Tammy Erickson, Managing Director of nGenera Collaboration Services and one of the world’s Top 50 business thinkers, will deliver the opening keynote address at Enterprise 2.0 on November 3 in San Francisco.
Ms. Erickson’s session titled, What Business Executives Really Think About E2.0, looks at the technology-enabled transformation underway within major corporations. Leveraging 2.0 effectively represents a significant challenge for organizations with strongly ingrained traditional practices. In many ways, operating as a Collaborative Enterprise requires re-thinking centuries of assumptions on how organizations should be structured and managed. Tammy will discuss the top five reasons business leaders hesitate to embrace the benefits of 2.0 – and outline the path ahead.
Tammy Erickson is a McKinsey Award-winning author and widely respected expert on collaboration and innovation; on building talent and enhancing productivity; and on the nature of work in the intelligent economy. Her work is based on extensive research on the changing workforce and employee values and, most recently, on how successful organizations innovate through collaboration.
