What Is An “Unconference”? Please Weigh In On Topic Choices.
Blog: Forrester Blog for Business Process and Applications Professionals
At Forrester’s Business Process And Application Delivery Forum, October 7 and 8 in National Harbor, MD , we are holding a session called an “unconference” in the Business Process content track (there is also an unconference for the Application Development and Delivery track).
What is an “unconference”? you may ask. It’s a session where the attendees are the presenters. Here is how the session is described on our event site:
“Unconferences are the coolest thing going in conferences, having taken a page out of the Web 2.0 and social networking world. Here’s how it works: Upon arriving at the Forum, attendees can vote for one of these three topics: 1) the future of packaged apps; 2) the future of BPM, or 3) the role of Social Computing in business processes. Once the winning topic is announced, then it’s your turn to sign up to speak at the session. Yes, that’s right — you are the speakers! Those passionate about the topic will each have 3 minutes to discuss the topic and offer a conclusion. It should be a lot of fun, quite democratic, and full of interesting points of view. “
We need your help, whether you have already signed up to attend, considering it, or just learning about the event. What we would like you to do is select the topic that you are most interested in discussing with your peers. It only takes a minute. Vote here:
