As a gathering of experts and practitioners the Enterprise 2.0 SUMMIT in Paris on Feb 07 & 08 2012 discusses the key challenges and success factors on how to design and implement these social initiatives and the future organization to enhance the business excellence.
As the implementation of social software within the corporations is today’s wide-spread practice in France and in Europe new and advanced models regarding a more social and collaborative organization have to be defined. The objective is to enhance the business excellence not only on the level of administrative and knowledge-based processes but the whole value chain.

What are concepts for the successful social business transformation? What are the building blocks for the future organization and ecosystem?
