Social Media for PM

In our eleventh show, the CHAOS team and our special guest, David Saul, Senior Vice President and Chief Scientist at State Street Services discusses using social media techniques to manage IT projects. In this program we focus on how organizations, like State Street, can use social media to manage, collaborate, and communicate project information and activities.

In this program we explore:

  • How State Street uses social media with their IT projects
  • How social media has improved the project environment
  • Examples of using social media in the project process
  • How social media is changing the PM & PMO roles
  • New things coming for social media in PM

Part of CHAOS Tuesday looks at resources that an organization can use to manage their projects through social media. One of the resources that we cover is a book by Elizabeth Harrin titled, Social Media for Project Managers.
