Post*Shift: the Prequel

A decade of learning how, when and with whom social technology can be implemented inside organisations to humanise and improve their operations left behind an interesting trail of blog posts, experiences and case studies, so it seemed like a good idea to maintain this web archive. Headshift was founded in 2002, sold in 2009, and the right to its name and content was then re-acquired by its founders in 2014 as they were setting up their new venture, Post*Shift. If you enjoy reading this archive, please head over to the Post*Shift site to find out how we are building on the first phase of social business technology to create new structures, culture and operations in large organisations as part of our vision for Twenty-First Century Business.
