Which Departments are Most Actively Engaged in Enterprise 2.0 (or Emergent Collaboration) - Jocab Morgan

A few weeks ago Chess Media Group released a no-cost research report we put together on the “State of Enterprise 2.0 Collaboration.”

The report was put together from survey responses of 234 executives, decision makers, and practitioners at companies around the world who are implementing emergent collaboration solutions at their organizations. One of the questions we sought to answer was which departments are most actively engaged in or involved with Enterprise 2.0 efforts?

Connecting Employees to Social Media: New Possibilities - Dion Hinchcliffe

Social media policy is usually not perceived as an exciting topic, yet at this stage of the industry nothing could be further from the truth.

It should now be considered a primary enabler as enterprises develop — or update — their social business strategies. Because of this perception, one of the more powerful and transformative tools in the social business arsenal will be left to languish unmodernized by many, making the organization do too much work, assume too much downside, and ignore important upsides.

Putting Enterprise 2.0 into Context - Andrew McAfee

Three recent posts have done a great job of showing where we are in the spread of Enterprise 2.0 – the use of emergent social software platforms by companies to get work done.

The first is Laurie Buczek’s “The Big Failure of Enterprise 2.0 Social Business.” I know Laurie, and know that she’s been working tirelessly in the trenches for several years to bring 2.0 tools, approaches, and philosophies to the very large company where she works (disclosures at end of post). She makes a brilliant point:

Culture will change as a result of the pervasive use of social tools. Lack of cultural change is not social business’s biggest failure. The biggest failure is the lack of workflow integration to drive culture change.

How to Turn Employees Into an Epic Blogging Team

How to Turn Employees Into an Epic Blogging TeamShare 

Last week I had the pleasure of leading a workshop for a group of relatively new bloggers.  This workshop wasn't at a conference - in fact, it was at the quarterly meeting of a company that believes so strongly in the business results of blogging that they've enlisted their entire company to participate - thereby increasing content, search results, traffic and leads in a dramatic way. Interestingly, this company isn't a gen-X led tech company. No...

Ein neues Paradigma – Wie Kommunikation die Welt verändert

Die Art und Weise wie Menschen miteinander kommunizieren verändert sich. Privat sind Menschen schon heute in sozialen Netzwerken und Microblog-Communities vernetzt, doch im Berufsumfeld wird der offene Dialog nicht als Chance begriffen, sondern mit Kontrollverlust gleichgesetzt. Dabei ist es in einer immer komplexer werdenden Welt unerlässlich, Wissen und Informationen ohne Hürden miteinander zu teilen. In einigen Bereichen des Geschäftslebens wurde dies bereits sehr früh bemerkt, andere tun sich noch schwer damit, dies zu akzeptieren. Während einige Unternehmen ihre Kommunikationskultur zukunftsfähig gestalten, versuchen andere mit dem Einsatz von Social Media Tools auf den fahrenden Zug aufzuspringen, nur um kurze Zeit später zu bemerken, dass dies ohne fehlende Kommunikationsstrategie schief geht. Wie aber muss sich Kommunikation im Unternehmen ändern, um den Anforderungen von morgen vorbereitet begegnen zu können?

15 indicators of social business transformation

As organizations begin to show signs of “social business” behaviors, they will begin to experience different levels of cultural change relating to the people in the organization, as well as its processes and technology.

The following are 15 indicators of social business transformation. It’s important to realize that while some of these behaviors are dependent on each other, they are distinct and not necessarily in chronological order.

Enterprise 2.0 Monatsrückblick Mai 2011

Schon wieder so viele gute Beiträge im Mai – traumhaft. Für mich begann der Monat mit einem kleinen Interview, das ich nach einem Enterprise 2.0 Treffen, anlässlich der re:publica, gab. Weiter habe ich Links aus allen Teilen des Enterprise 2.0 Segments: So berichtet centrestage über einen weiteren Unternehmenswandel durch Social Media und lässt in die künftige Studie einen Einblick gewähren. Außerdem entdeckten wir eine interessante Präsentation von Headshift Consultant James Dellow, der strategische Fragen zum Social Intranet stellt und beantwortet. Eine schöne Use-Case entdeckte ich auf dem Blog von IBM, wo die BASF ein Interview mit ihrem Community Manager CheeCin Liew führt. Außerdem im Monatsrückblick: Dion Hinchcliffe und seine drei Modelle für ein Social Intranet. Und dass Enterprise 2.0 auch was für B2C Branchen ist, zeigt anschaulich die Use-Case von Mointain Equipment Co-op, einem Vertrieb von Kayaks und Kletterausrüstungen. Und noch ein Use-Case, diesmal von der Telekom: Hier berichtet das DMR Magazin für Management und Technologie von Prozessmanagement 2.0 und hebt das Unternehmen positiv, in einem ausführlichen Artikel, hervor. Das kann Stephan Grabmeier, auch Mitarbeiter der Telekom, vermutlich nur bestätigen: Denn in seinem Interview auf Karrierebibel.tv weiß er spannendes über Enterprise 2.0 in seinem Unternehmen zu erzählen. Last but not least ein Thema, das aktuell auch in der Enterprise 2.0 XING-Gruppe diskutiert wird: Warum tun sich manche so schwer, die Wichtigkeit von Enterprise 2.0 zu sehen? Hierzu hat Jane McConnell einen interessanten Beitrag mit Lösungsansätzen geschrieben.

Leadership 2.0 – Netzwerkmanager mit Herz und Vertrauen

In unseren Beratungs- und auch Umsetzungsprojekten haben mein Team und ich häufig mit Menschen aus Führungspositionen von mittelständischen und großen Unternehmen zu tun. Durch Gespräche, Workshops und Interviews lernen wir viel darüber, welche Herausforderungen diese Personen in Bezug auf die Unternehmensziele sehen, und welche Führungsrollen sie dabei übernehmen möchten. Auf der anderen Seite hören wir täglich, wie Mitarbeiter aus verschiedenen Ebenen dieser Unternehmen über das Management oder den Vorstand denken, fühlen und sprechen.

Das Bild, das die Mitarbeiter dabei zeichnen, widerspricht dem Selbstverständnis der Führungspersönlichkeiten oft in recht deutlichem Ausmaß. Dabei ist es nicht das “übliche” Klagen über das fehlende Verständnis für die Probleme, die die Mitarbeiter tagtäglich bei der Erledigung ihrer Arbeit haben. In den vergangenen Monaten konnte man vielmehr den Eindruck bekommen, dass zunehmend fehlende visionäre Eigenschaften sowie das Kommunikationsverhalten bemängelt werden, und daher die Identifikation der Mitarbeiter mit ihrer Unternehmensführung und damit auch mit dem Unternehmen insgesamt verstärkt abnehmen.

How connect.BASF Helped BASF Become a Social Business - Elsua

In the recent past I have been blogging over here a couple of times already on some of the amazing piece of work that BASF (disclaimer: An IBM customer) has been doing over the course of the last year or so on becoming a Social Business and behave and act as such.

Living Socialis no easy task, for sure, but with a bit of perseverance, commitment, resilience, and a couple of other key important traits BASF has been demonstrating it’s now possible to a...

Making An Intranet More Social - Dion Hinchcliffe

In enterprises large and small around the world there's now a growing imperative to replace the outdated, inflexible, and limited legacy intranets of yesterday with something newer, richer, and more effective.

These days this almost invariably means incorporating a significant social media element into an intranet redesign.

Teach Social Media Savvy - Kim Dwyer

With social media tools present on over 87% of organizations’ intranets (regardless of organization size) no one can dispute the impact these tools will have on business and internal communications. But in order for employees to adopt them as critical business tools an effective training program needs to be part of your social intranet strategy.

Gartner predicts by 2014, 20% of organizations will rely on social media rather than email as the primary vehicle for interpersonal communications, mirroring our experience in which the intuitiveness and social appeal of this new technology is displacing e-mail in our internet activity.

STS - The Social Workplace - Is reducing costs the key driver for social media?

Having a social platform to allow employees to connect and collaborate better will improve the knowledge flows of an organisation. It will allow companies to utilise the collective intelligence of its own employees to crowdsource and solve key business issues.

But in the current economic climate, companies are starting to think more about how to reduce costs. Is social media the answer?

Enterprise 2.0: Why All Business Software Must Go Social - Pehong Chen

Enterprise 2.0 is a term that has moved from “think outside the box concept” into a mainstream staple. Many business leaders are trying to adopt the concept into day-to-day work – or at the very least are aware that it exists and want to learn more.

Either way, it is increasingly evident that the prevailing wisdom on the subject has changed; having an enterprise social network is no longer a fascination of early adopters. It is now an essential component of the enterprise.

Working With Five Generations In The Workplace - Rawn Shah

From a recent conversation with Jeanne Meister, we are facing a new future in terms of demographics at work: we will soon have five generations in the workplace at once. In prior years, we have had three or four generations at a time with some but not vast differences in work behavior.

Today people are living and working longer leading to this new reality. What’s more, this phenomenon goes beyond the US into China, Brazil, Russia and elsewhere. The significance is in terms of types of workforce behavior...

Research Findings Highlight the Evolution of Social Business

Communities of practice, professional networks, social media, email, and SMS are among the tools that enable multi-channel access for individuals (employees, customers, partners, and suppliers).

In this second study, we further examined the role of social media on decision-making among enterprise users and explored the dynamics of trust as well as the value of engagement and collaboration to support decision making and innovation across company operations for internal and external purposes.

Specifically, we sought to explore the following questions:

  • Is social media regarded as a trustworthy source of information for professionals?
  • What do enterprise decision makers value most when interacting with peers through social media and social networks?
  • How do enterprise decision makers use social media to gather information, advice and support peer collaboration; and how do they compare to traditional off-line networking and knowledge share?
  • What tools and sources of social media are relied upon by professionals to make decisions?
  • Will social media change the business and practice of enterprise-level operations (internal and external)?
  • How do business leaders use social media for customer engagement/support; innovation of products and service; employee engagement; strategy development; sales and marketing?
  • What has changed since 2009 in terms of social media usage and trust among professional decision-makers?

infoarch: Social First by Dion Hinchcliffe @dhinchcliffe #intra11 - Samuel Driessen

After Peter Hinssen opened the Intranet Conference, Dion Hinchcliffe of the Dachis Group took the stage. His talk was about Social Intranet in the context of social business (- you can get his slides here, shortly).

Dion's work rotates around what the implications of the new web are for the workplace, for business. How is the internet and social media impacting the way we do business and organize businesses? For some time this field was called 'enterprise 2.0', but Dion says, it's called 'social business' now.

Creating a Social Intranet where Employees can Learn, Plan and Do

Introducing the Social Intranet

Social media has generated a flurry of organizational buzzwords and catch phrases — collaboration, enterprise 2.0, knowledge share, cloud computing, community, online reputation, social CRM, crowd sourcing… and the list goes on and on.

One of the phrases that you hear more and more frequently is actually one that has been around for quite some time: employee engagement. (And one that is very near and dear to my heart.) With this renewed focus on engagement, organizations are now assessing how they can leverage social technologies to engage their most important audience, employees.
