Change Management Meets Web 2.0
Gale, Doug
Campus Technology, v22 n1 p47-48, 50-51 Sep 2008
Web 2.0 is the term used to describe a group of web-based creativity, information-sharing, and collaboration tools including wikis, blogs, social networks, and folksonomies. The common thread in all of these tools is twofold: They enable collaboration and information sharing, and their impact on higher education has been dramatic. A recent study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that more than a quarter of today's teens have created their own online journal or blog, and more than half create online content and engage in social networking. The workforce of the future will be more than familiar with collaborative tools and will consider their use a normal part of whatever they do. This article discusses how these technologies have changed the way higher education goes about managing projects and managing the change process itself. Tips on managing change are also presented.
