Social media & social business in small enterprises
One of the major changes under way in very large and global businesses is the adoption of collaboration tools. Often these are social media based software tools which allow people from different business units or divisions to collaborate with others.
In an organisation which is not in competition with other divisions this makes sense, but what about small businesses?
Many of us in “micro businesses” collaborate on projects and mini- joint ventures, but what is the future for a more open approach? where people not just network but collaborate?
Will this happen, even if there is no obvious commercial gain for some parties?
