Welcome to Sociamind, an initiative of Gooding Davies Consultancy Pty Ltd!
The dynamics of managing, planning and service delivery for NGOs, small organisations, councils and government agencies are being profoundly affected by the development of social media (such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube) and the advent of Web 2.0 applications. Not only do these new forms of application and content delivery challenge the paradigm for the provision of “traditional” software – they also create new and exciting ways in which to engage with the community.
This blog will explore these trends and identify some of the best tools available for your organisation, both web-based and “conventional” applications – and how you can use them to manage your organisations and projects. It will also discuss some of the issues and challenges that social media and Web 2.0 provide to the government, non government and small business sectors as well as a range of other practical ideas to help your organisation.
Gooding Davies Consultancy Pty Ltd is an independent consultancy based in Western Sydney, Australia, providing a range of services to Councils, Government and the corporate and community sectors including:
- Advocacy, Consultation and Research
- Strategic Planning and Policy Development
- Organisation Development and Management
- Expert Advice and Project Management
Sociamind complements our website-based blog, StrategyMatters, which examines strategic thinking for organisations as well as “big picture” strategic planning affecting the wider community in relation to these issues. Highlights from both blogs will also be combined in the GDC Newsletter which we will be circulating to our clients and other interested parties, with links back to the website and blogs – and we would welcome your feedback as well.
