Every year, at this period, I usually write a debrief of the Enterprise 2.0 Summit in Frankfurt. No such thing this year since the Summit did not take place in Frankfurt in november but will in Paris on the 8th and 9th of february.There are many reasons why I highly suggest you to attend this conference.
1Â°) Because it’s an european event
Cases and experiences are often shared nationwide. French ones in France, German ones in Germany etc… This event is a unique occasion to compare and benchmark things from all over Europe with, for example AXA, BASF, Lufthansa, Deutsche Bank, SociÃ©tÃ© GÃ©nÃ©rale, Danone, IBM, Alcatel-Lucent, Lyonnaise des Eaux, Allianz, Saint-Gobain, Bayer, JC Decaux…and many others.
2Â°) Because of top level speakers
A look at the speakers list will be enough. Many VPS, directors…that will speak about the strategic dimension of projects that are deeper than giving their information system a facelift. As for experts that will also be speaking, I think their names are very familiar to you. The focus will be on strategic projects, value creation…what leads to the next point.
3Â°) Because the nature of the discussion is dramatically shifting
As we can see, the point is not about knowing how to bring social media in the workplace anymore. At least, not for most speakers. The real question is about designing a new model for the enterprise to face today’s challenges, how to create value in a complex and unpredictable context, what do organizational experience means in 2012.Â The agenda perferfectly reflects this…
4Â°) Because of the Keynotes
In addition to talks and discussions on cases and best practices, a conference should also bring something more in term of vision and sense. Something that will shape the business for the next years. So you may like to see :
– Rawn Shah,Â social business transformation expert at IBM (also author ofÂ social networking for business) and Yves Caseau (Vice President Bouygues Telecom, author ofÂ Processus et enteprise 2.0) discussing about social and community approaches and how it will impact processes and new excellence models.
– Richard Collin (Grenoble Business School- Nextmodernity) ans Jean-Christophe Kugler (Renault) discussing the new organizational models as well as the future of processes and workflows
– Dion Hinchcliffe will be talking about the evolution of business models and key success factors for organizational excellence.
5Â°) Because of the format
No one way speech here. Each session includes a discussion with other practionners, experts and the audience. So the audience has time to ask questions and challenge the speakers. The conference is organized so that speakers and audience have time to exchange and debate and the time allowed for discussions is quite the same as for speeches.
