About The Book

In this newly revised and updated edition of The New Social Learning, Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner dispel organizational myths and fears about social media.

By sharing the success stories of socially engaged companies and people, the much-anticipated second edition persuasively makes the case for giving social media a place at the conference table by encouraging knowledge transfer and real-time learning in a connected and engaging way.

Brand-new case studies about innovative organizations illustrate cutting-edge social learning approaches that cultivate environments where great people can do their best work. As Steve LeBlanc noted, “Social learning thrives in a culture of service and wonder. It is inspired by leaders, enabled by technology, and ignited by opportunities that have only recently unfolded."
