Second Annual Social Business Research Study
Be among the first to gain new insight on the potential paths to social business maturity
The evolution of social business has moved well beyond early marketing forays and the quest for “Likes.” Today, companies achieving business results are deploying innovative approaches to address real business challenges. From increasing sales force effectiveness to adopting new strategies to attract talent, organizations are paving new roads by focusing social efforts in impactful ways – and measuring the results.
There is little doubt that the social movement has surpassed its faddish hype and that many organizations are tapping into the power of social technologies to advance their business objectives. Despite the general sense of urgency and opportunity around social, how quickly is the socially connected enterprise emerging? What are the likely barriers to progress and, conversely, what factors can boost social business maturity?
To answer these questions, Deloitte and MIT Sloan Management Review (SMR) began collaborating in 2011 on an annual global research effort to take the pulse of the rapidly evolving world of social business over time. These research results, gathered through surveys and interviews, provide insight into the evolution of social business adoption. The survey report reveals how some organizations are shifting out of first gear on the road to maturity, and offers case study examples of leading-edge social businesses.
