Karl Wabst's curator insight, April 1, 2013 6:09 PM

The idea of a circular economy is about changing how people perceive the lifecycle of the products we create; Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.

 

What if we extended that concept to how we manage data? Instead of collecting data and holding on to it for eternity, just in case we need it later, we could actively cultivate ways to make data output by one process into responsible and profitable inputs for other processes.

 

We could encourage employees to learn about our business and understand how processes fit together, or find similar processes being performed in other departments, divisions or subsidiaries. Would the side effects produce and increase the number of connections? How about the effectiveness of collaboration?

 

What if we used internal social media to collaborate on ways to improve corporate data ecosystems? We could come up with a stylish name like Social Data Transformation.

 

How would you do this? Who would you have to sell on the idea? Would something like this change the culture of your organization?

Just having millions of followers, fans and “interactions” on social networks doesn’t make you social.

Talking to your customers, listening to what their concerns and ideas are and responding to them is what being a social business is about.


Karl Wabst's curator insight, March 29, 2013 4:25 PM

Social media is not necessary to be a social business. There are many other forms of "social."

 

Social media can make you more effective at expanding your reach. You still fail if you only use it to blast out marketing messages, not to listen, change culture and respond to customers.

Jacqui Hogan's curator insight, March 30, 2013 2:06 PM

All good businesses are social to some extent. 'Social' implies an interaction on a personal level with your customer etc. with the emphasis on interaction i.e. 2 way communication and personal i.e. specific to the person.


As Karl rightly says it includes all social business not just social media. Social media just gives you access to a wider social sphere - one not limited by geography, and additional tools to make interactive communications easier. It should not be confused with marketing/advertising.
