Web 2.0 is more than a set of tools; it is a "platform" for organization, characterized by decentralized and emergent versus command-and-control leadership models. Can our institutions leverage the new realities of social media for better decision making and outcomes? This session will highlight the theory and practice of an "agile university."

It's been said that the most successful corporations are willing to entertain ideas that would kill current models. #E10_SESS005

#E10_SESS005 Is this volcano the anti-PPM?

I wish people would use the session tags. I keep seeing stuff about #E10_SESS005 fly by on #EDUCAUSE intermixed with vendor announcements.

#E10_SESS005 Very interesting session on complex adaptive knowledge systems; agility just one part of it. Thought-provoking.

Are there universities already doing this agile mode? Career/tech colleges? For-Profits? #E10_SESS005
