February 27, 2007 Meeting: Wikinomics--How The Smartest Companies Create Value in the Age of Mass Collaboration

What do MySpace, InnoCentive, Flickr, Second Life, YouTube, Linux, the Human Genome Project and the Chinese Motorcycle Industry have in common? These are examples of mass collaboration -- where peers come together to create value. Today, thanks to the New Web, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and much else are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the heaving growth of these massive communities, evidence is strong that firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success.

For the first time in the Bay Area, Don Tapscott -- one of the world's leading business strategists -- shares insights from his new best selling book (co-author Anthony Williams) Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything. The eLearning Forum, in co-sponsorship with Cisco Systems, is pleased to invite you to a conversation with Don Tapscott over lunch at Cisco Systems campus on Tuesday, February 27th. This event promises to be a stimulating discovery of the power of social networking in a business context, with boundless learning and knowledge sharing implications for all organizations and those who help them to compete. For more information about Don’s background and latest book, visit: www.newparadigm.com or www.wikinomics.com.

An autographed copy of Don’s book is included in the registration fee. Altus Learning Systems will be video recording the session and making it available on the eLF website.
