[Report] The Evolution of Social Business: Six Stages of Social Media Transformation, by Charlene Li and Brian Solis
Post on 08-Sep-2014
DESCRIPTIONCompanies are not created equal when it comes to social media maturity. In its latest research, Altimeter Groups Charlene Li and Brian Solis uncovered a distinct gap between organizations that execute social media strategies and those that are truly a social business. On one side, there are businesses (specifically departments) that are actively investing in social media without being tied to business goals. On the other side are organizations that are deeply integrating social media and social methodologies throughout the company to drive real business impact. As companies mature in social, Altimeter Group found a natural progression through six distinct stages: Planning, Presence, Engagement, Formalized, Strategic, and Converged. In The Evolution of Social Business, readers will find common guiding success factors for organizations achieving success in each social business maturity stage, as well as prescriptive recommendations and checklists to grow to the next level of maturity.
