IBM India/SA (ISA) came up with a brilliant idea to organize a JAM to celebrate the centennial year of IBM. ISA Centennial JAM gave all IBMers in the region a unique opportunity to collaborate directly with each other, share ideas, have direct access to key executives and initiate meaningful conversations. And what we have in return is:-
|Since the start of the Jam on 23rd Feb 2011|
|# of total posts: 10755|
|# of total logins: 18284|
And still there are over 7 hours to go.
JAM was a place to watch. So many people having lot to say and relate to. It was amazing to have such a wonderful discussion inside IBM. Even if you do not have any idea to share or anything to respond, just going through the responses on different threads would be a wonderful experience – an experience that will educate you and by the time you will complete reading few threads there will be plenty of ideas that will come into your mind and that others would cheerfully like to know. Otherwise too it will be an education session for the next JAM or to implement in real life.
The only question is “What Next?” Will this be the end in itself. Probably not. Because Shanker Annaswamy has promised that some top ideas across discussion forums will be sponsored by the India Leadership team for further evaluation/implementation. Other select ideas that tie in directly with IBM Centennial plan will be shared with the Corporation.
Hope that we have more such JAMs in the future and also that chosen Ideas hit the market. Till then keep thinking.
