Qualities of leaders in successful 2.0 roll-outs
There's lots of talk about overcoming obstacles and blockers. What are the qualities common in successful applications of open, collaborative structures?

The applications need to not just meet the "Social" need, but also measured productivity needs. More, the collaborative input need, I think. How is this possible? Integration with existing processes and methodologies, is one. Enterprise 2.0 is not a "rip and replace" technology, or should not be, but it does hit alot of areas/applications of the functional organization. Therefore, evolve the migration with functional integrations into common platforms. Platform applications with open APIs, customizable interfaces and already built-in integration touchpoints or plugins, are best suited imho.
Interesting to find out what elements (such as people, technology, culture, org structure) or combinations of elements seem most supportive of social enterprise
