Information Overload is Killing Productivity - The Future of Social Tools & Processes

CMSWire, a web magazine focused on customer experience management, social business and document management, is holding a Tweet Jam to discuss the impact of information overload on knowledge workers.

Join in on September 26th at 10 am PDT / 1 pm EDT / 1700 GMT as CMSWire, the broader CMSWire community and sponsor, Bloomfire, spend an hour looking at the impact of information overload on knowledge workers, if email is living up to the job of content collaboration or not, and the overall theme of “Information Overload is Killing Productivity - The Future of Social Tools & Processes.”

These questions will shape the discussion:

1. How do you primarily receive/consume the information that you need to do your job (e.g., web, intranet, email, social channels, etc.)?
2. Is information overload/scatter/silo'ing causing you to miss out on key task related information? 3. How bad is this problem in your workplace?
4. How much time do you spend in email each day? And considering this, how do you feel about email-based information findability?
5. What tools or practices do you use to help you prioritize important content you need to read?
6. What are your top 3 dislikes of email as a content/information sharing tool?
7. Tell us why or why not you think social business software will kill email or at least make it a much less prevalent tool.

To help answer these questions, CMSWire has assembled a panel of industry experts to share insights and field experiences.

Panelists include:
> Alan Lepofsky, VP & Principal Analyst at Constellation Research, @alanlepo
> Tom Petrocelli, Research Director, Enterprise Social at Neuralytix, Inc., @tompetrocelli
> Bill Cushard, Training Lead at ServiceRocket, @billcush
> Jodi Bart Holzband, Director of Communications at Bloomfire, @tastytouring

All experience levels are welcome to join in, just tweet all questions and/or responses throughout the Tweet Jam. By using the #SocBizChat hashtag, messages will automatically become part of the discussion.
