CIOs: Support HEROes — Create Social Innovation Networks Using The PACT Framework

An Empowered Report: Using Social Technologies To Empower Innovation

    Why Read This Report

    Customers already use social technologies to wrest power away from large corporations. Now employees are also adapting social technologies in pursuit of innovations to support these empowered customers; Forrester calls these employees HEROes (highly empowered and resourceful operatives). By designing social technologies as part of their Innovation Networks, CIOs and their IT teams help establish new Social Innovation Networks — innovation ecosystems employing social technologies to enhance HEROes' innovation. These Social Innovation Networks help drive faster, more effective innovation across the enterprise. And CIOs must rise to the challenge of nurturing and developing these networks across the enterprise while structuring their IT teams to fully support them. Forrester recommends using the PACT framework (process, advocates, culture, and technology) to empower employees and support HEROes across the enterprise.
