Saba (NASDAQ:SABA), the premier provider of people-centric enterprise solutions, today announced that customers The Educe Group, Management Innovation eXchange, and Yum! Brands will be speaking in a keynote panel at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston, Massachusetts on June 20, 2012. Participants will learn how the Social Web holds clues for how to improve today’s organizations, making them more resilient, inventive, and engaging. The panel will discuss the opportunities to overcome the limits of “Management 1.0” to create organizations that are large but not bureaucratic, focused but not myopic, specialized but not balkanized, efficient but not inflexible and, best of all, disciplined but not disempowering.

In addition, the findings from the Management 2.0 Hackathon will be shared during the panel discussion. The Management 2.0 Hackathon was launched at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara last November by the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) in partnership with Saba and the Enterprise 2.0 Conference. Since then, the hackathon has grown into a large-scale collaboration project involving over 850 progressive management practitioners, technologists, and thinkers from around the globe to explore ways in which the principles of Web 2.0 can serve as inspiration for transforming how all organizations will be run and managed over the next decade. The best of their thinking is now ready to share, consolidated into a few management “hacks” – blueprints for organizations of the future.

Attendees of this informative session will learn:

  • The top ideas that emerged from leading management innovators during the Management 2.0 Hackathon
  • Unique management hacks that will help transform organizations of all sizes around the world
  • Practical approaches to help drive change in today’s organizations
