ibmsocialbiz:IBM Case Study: A lesson in Social Business Transformation | Social Media Blog by Michael BritoLate last year, I started watching and monitoring the #socialbiz hashtag on Twitter.  I was in the middle of writing my book and conducting in  depth research of companies that were at least talking about or  referring to a social business. One company seemed to dominate the  conversation, IBM. I watched more closely and realized that there were  literally hundreds of IBM employees collaborating with the community and  adding value to the “social business” conversation. I was really  impressed and wanted to learn more.Even with over 400 thousand employees, sadly I didn’t know anyone who works for IBM. And then one day, I met Dana Carr on Twitter and we started emailing back and forth.  She was able to get me  exclusive access (well, not really) with Jeff Schick, Vice President of  Social Software who has been working for IBM for the last 23 years for  an email interview.
