Thomler, Online Communications Director at the Department of Health and Ageing told CeBIT Australia
yesterday that Australia's governance structures… Continue

A colleague and I are having a discussion about the position or title of Director. Is it over saturated or is the title appropriate for the position. The position we are discussiong specifically is for that of a Social Media and Enterprise 2.0 person. They wish it to be called coordinator. This position does not exist yet, but when it does, the person will have a direct report to one other person (position title unknown) and be responsible for standing up an Enterprise 2.0 and Social Media… Continue
