The following session proposal identifies the "dark side" issues that can undermine the productivity gains we're trying to achieve with Enterprise 2.0 efforts. The abstract reminds us that the relationship between people and technology is tricky business and requires careful consideration.The community have spoken and would like to hear more. Congratulations to Kathleen Culver-Lozo and Greg Lowe (greg2dot0) from Alcatel-Lucent on their session proposal:

The Dark side of Enterprise 2.0 - The potential of seamless contact with anyone anywhere at any time seems to promise improvements in productivity, most ROI calculations overlook the hidden costs to this ubiquitous access. A growing body of research is showing the already overly interrupt-driven, multi-tasking work environment can be detrimental to productivity and even the quality. Further, on-line access and collaboration is still less effective than in-person meetings. Finally, these technologies align better with some individuals'' personalities. This session will explain how to look into the psychology of the individual and the organization to anticipate where these misalignments lie and provide strategies for mitigating them.
