Professor Mark Lee Hunter and his colleagues Luk N. Van Wassenhove and Maria Besiou have identified a powerful sector of media that is controlled by stakeholders with the purpose of influencing other stakeholders and organizations (like governments or firms). He will share the reasons why stakeholder media matter to firms and why they are not identical to “social media” – though ironically, they are more influential in many cases.
Professor Hunter and his colleagues are currently on predictive models relating to stakeholder media processes and effects to develop frameworks and templates to further understand their underlying mechanisms and to therefore drive actionable strategies and tactics.
The Conference Board has published research relevant to the webcast, which can be accessed by clicking the following titles: ‘Managing the Conversation’, CEO Challenge Reflections: Social Media Goes to Work and Get Social: A Guide to Creating Your Company's Social Media Strategy.
