Yesterday I spend a little time getting involved in the ACT Government Twitter Cabinet. The focus was on Canberra beyond 2013. Lots of ideas and views exchanged. Through sheer serendipity one of my views on life struck a note with our Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher. So the next Twitter Cabinet will involve school kids.
The idea has also been picked up and supported by a few other MLA's.
Make sense strategically = building capability by the way. Which, in my view, is precisely what organisations should being doing internally.
So why am I sharing this with you?
What this practical and timely real world example illustrates that we really can just 'get on with engagement' - as opposed to talking about it. Effectively that is what the technology does. Let people get on with engaging.
And there is no reason why that same approach can't apply just as much within organisations. Regardless of size.
