Four Questions about Social Media Impact and INFORMS
I enjoyed the social media session the other day. I came away thinking about which market social media (blogs, Twitter, Youtube, etc.) is best for. Here are a few questions I’ve been thinking about based on various stakeholders:
How can we best present and sell our research to expand the value of the work we’ve done to our colleagues, our schools/companies, and even media and government?
2. Students and the Next Generation:
How can we pitch Operations and create “Bill Nye the Operations Guy” to better reach younger students?
3. Internal Operations Community
How can we create stronger ties within the Operations community and build better sharing and communication into the system?
4. New Markets for Operations
Can we get to a point where Operations content truly evangelizes outsiders who previously did not appreciate operations and makes them Operations consumers?
I’m looking forward to reading some of your input here and elsewhere on the ability of social media to address any of these four questions.
