706 Podcasting for Organizational Learning: A Case Study
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, March 28
Video & Media
As organizations grow, there is too much change occurring too frequently to rely on traditional forms of communication. Meetings, email, and training are just not sufficient to create organizational alignment at scale. Additionally, leaders in growing organizations consistently strive to become better communicators for their organization, and they crave a more authentic way to connect with large teams.
In this session, you will learn how one organization leveraged podcasting to create a sustainable platform for authentic communication. Leveraging SharePoint, TiER1 developed a secure podcasting platform, called Pulsecast, that enables organizational leaders to record from their phones and publish to the whole company in minutes. They also integrated Pulsecast with Yammer, a social intranet, to foster a broader conversation. This session will examine how this platform increased employee engagement; how it became an informal learning channel; best practices for leadership podcasting; and how clients have used Pulsecast.
In this session, you will learn:
- About the benefits of podcasting in a growing or changing organization
- How to program episodes and programs to drive engagement
- Best practices for authentic leadership podcasting
- How podcasting can improve leadership communication habits
- How to integrate podcasting into SharePoint and Yammer
Novice to intermediate designers, developers, and managers.
Technology discussed in this session:
