An Ideation Initiative to Learn More About Social Technology in Organizations

Hosted by the Center for the Future of Organization at the Drucker School of Management

The "Six Skills Global Dialogue" aims to deepen our understanding of how social technologies are transforming the texture of organizations and the practice of leadership.

We cordially invite thought leaders, academics. executives, consultants, and anyone who wants to provide insights to contribute their perspective and share their experiences. We are particularly interested in hearing stories about innovative practices, successes, and stumbling blocks.

To frame the dialogue, we will use a six-dimensional capability framework which we originally published with McKinsey Quarterly. To kick-start the conversation, we have drafted for each dimension an opening statement with questions that are designed to inspire contributions and comments. You can easily access the dimensions via the drop-down menu "Join the Dialogue".

This website is custom-designed as a "social blog". By "liking" content you can create a personal archive of contributions that interest you. You can also follow contributors and find out about the background of the people who participate.  

We hope the dialogue will become an ongoing platform of collaborative exchange between academia, business and consulting. 

Please join and register to make your perspective heard - or just to stay informed about what is happening on this site!
