6 Social Media & IT© 2013 Pink Elephant. All Rights Reserved. 6Ex A little GEN Y humor … Why do we call the last group Generation Y ? I always thought it was because they say.... Y should I get a job ? Y should I leave home and find my own place ? Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours ? Y should I clean my room ? Y should I wash and iron my own clothes ? Y should I buy any food ?

10 Social Media & IT© 2013 Pink Elephant. All Rights Reserved. 10Ex Soooo…that’s nice…but… It’s all about communication styles and fastballs. Boomers: Telephone Face-to-Face Fax Confirmations (and a lot of it!) Group/Team meetings (and a lot of them!) Cell phones for talking (not necessarily for texting) Gen X: Let “me” choose my communication and how often I do it Cell phone Text Blogging Instant message Online forums Gen Y (Millenials): Text/Instant Message Online social networks (but only for work or school)

11 Social Media & IT© 2013 Pink Elephant. All Rights Reserved. 11Ex Multiple Channels Boomers want a live conversation with an actual human being Gen X will talk to people or go through official online channels or FAQs Gen Y will ask for help from anyone in the easiest way. Online, text, etc.

12 Social Media & IT© 2013 Pink Elephant. All Rights Reserved. 12Ex So who is going to use self-service? Not the Boomers, that’s for sure! They will call someone. (Probably a Gen Y) Gen X may use an official self-service portal with FAQs and knowledge articles, etc. Gen Y will ask Google and anyone else in the cyberworld. And they may accept nearly any solution offered…without testing, etc.

13 Social Media & IT© 2013 Pink Elephant. All Rights Reserved. 13Ex Conclusions As we are in IT design our ITSM solutions, communication strategies and self-service capabilities we must understand that there are 3 distinct constituencies that we serve. Each with their own unique requirements and biases. This simple fact will prove pervasive in management systems and IT as we move through the next few years.
