Back in the early 80's, companies had issues adopting computers. In the early 90's, it was email. In the early 2000's it was Instant Messaging. And now we have Social Software.
Now that Social Software is the new medium for collaboration we need to help key stakeholders create their own custom strategy for social software adoption within their enterprise.  In order to be successful, they need to understand how to create their own adoption strategy that fits their culture and work environment.
This session is focused at project managers, business sponsors, and technical experts to help understand the unique business value Lotus Connections can bring to your organization. This workshop also outlines best practices to adopting social software to increase the ROI with Lotus Connections.  The session will share success stories from other customers as well as lessons learned from customers where adoption was not too successful.  Finally, in this session we'll cover what IBM has done to promote the use and adoption of social software inside and outside of the firewall.

Great idea, Luis. Very much needed too.

Just a personal opinion - don't overdo the IBM case study. Most folks have heard all about IBM's use of social tools, I'd be more interested to hear extra references of customers using and extending Connections.

I suppose its just me, the only one left, but I don't see need for distinction of "Web 2.0" and I am not a big fan of the approach.

In this case, a session that is about promoting a product belongs in one of the IBM product tracks, IMCO.
