Mon May 23: How New IT and New Styles of Work Will Reshape Journalism And Communications

Geoffrey Moore, Venture Partner, Mohr Dawidov Ventures. Moderated by Jan Hedquist.

IJ-8 Communication Track Keynote Speaker Geoffrey Moore will talk about what happens with organizations, now that consumer communication applications like Skype, Facebook and Twitter are outcompeting corporate solutions.

People working in organizations, ranging from engineers in corporate environments to journalists in newsrooms, are using consumer applications like Facebook whenever they can, often instead of corporate software, which they find restrictive. What does this change in communication mode mean for the future of corporations, for the future of communicators and journalists? According to Geoff, there will be consequences. Organizations will change in character. Things will turn on their head.
