Marcia Conner, Partner with Altimeter Group, works with senior leaders to put collaborative technologies into action.
She aligns social strategies with corporate culture to inform decision-making, speed innovation, and invigorate an organization’s value chain. She is the co-author The New Social Learning: Transforming Organizations Through Social Media (with Tony Bingham) and, Creating a Learning Culture (with Jim Clawson), and author of Learn More Now. Former Vice President and Information Futurist at PeopleSoft and Worldwide Manager at Microsoft, she now advises corporations, writes the popular Fast Company column “Learn at All Levels,” and is a Fellow at the Darden School of Business.
The New Social Learning shows how social media can harness brainpower and experiences of colleagues working across the globe as easily as if they were side by side – with case studies from organizations as diverse a Deloitte, IBM, Mayo Clinic, TELUS, Chevron, and even the CIA.
Conner is widely quoted for her outcome-based work – in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, CIO Magazine, PCWeek, Information Week, and on the BBC. She is also a sought-after facilitator and keynote speaker.
