We’re excited to unpack and explore The DNA of Collaboration as a Virtual Book Tour, which you may see referenced from time to time via hashtag #cdnaVBT. We’ll be doing this as a Twitter chat. We hope it will be a great way to explore the book’s content, as well as getting to know Chris Jones, the author, better known online as @sourcepov.
ORGDNA : MON 9p:30-11pm ET. Click here for the latest in the chat stream.
2015 OPEN CHAT. For 2015, we’ve turned to the community for input on topics of most interest in the organizational learning space.

Chat Mechanics. The venue for our discussion is an exciting one. As reported by Forbes, twitter chats have taken social media by storm, modeling a unique and powerful collaborative dynamic. Our specific hashtag for the conversation will be #cdna. Most who participate use free tools HootSuite.com or Tweetchat.com to monitor the flow of dialog, and to automatically append the hashtag to tweets of your own. This creates a virtual chat room, a place for us to connect .. which is itself a key collaborative driver covered in Chapter 13 on “Space”.
More on the Book. Want to get a feel for the book? Use the “Look Inside” feature on Amazon to read excerpts from the first few chapters online. You may also find our table of contents and reader page useful, because we’re posting updates and feedback.
As we like to say, this is more than a book .. it’s a conversation. We hope you’ll join in!
