Event Description

Fear and loathing in social media

Presenter: Mark Oehlert

Password: Lsg2012


Some people fear social media. Others loathe it. Both are natural human reactions, and to introduce social learning into organisations, argues Mark Oehlert, requires a human solution to this resistance, rather than the technological solutions so often celebrated.


In this session, Mark draws both on his work at the Defense Acquisition University and on case studies from elsewhere to illustrate how human solutions are often easy to describe, difficult to implement and fundamental in their impact. For Mark, introducing social tools does not mean tinkering with the delivery of training. It often requires an overhaul of, and radical shift in, working behaviours.
