Organizations have suffered a large (r)evolution at the social, economic
and technological levels. A change of paradigm in the information
systems and technologies (IST) used in the day-to-day life of every
citizen cannot sustain such a transformation by itself; a change of
culture and behaviour is therefore necessary. The use of IST in an
appropriate and integrated way with the organization's processes will
depend on an individual and collective effort. The younger generation,
accustomed to sharing personal information on Facebook, Twitter, and
other platforms,often through mobile devices, enters the job market
looking for similar tools. These new "social tools" allow the
production, sharing and management of information and knowledge within
the organization between peers and other stakeholders, eliminating the
barriers of communication and sharing. Taking advantage of these
technologies for organizations within the context of Social Business, in
particular nomadic workers, requires a comprehension exercise in how to
demonstrate its usefulness with regard to the creation, access and
sharing of contents in a safe way. To this end, this chapter provides a
comprehensive view of a new context of labour faced by traditional
organizations (i.e. social business supported by mobile IST - m_CSDT) in
order to improve the well-being of these organizations through the
collective intelligence and agility dimensions.
