Start with why

At my company e-office I was asked to write a little piece of content about our internal community enterprise2.0 for our website. So we came up with a theoretical epos about Enterprise2.0, McAfee, SLATES, Yellow and Blue and organisational change.

Pauline from marketing responded:”I’ve read this article for 3 times now, but after 2 sentences my mind just wondered off…”  My colleague Matthijs at the other end of the desk (we’ve got large desks with space for about 10 people) overheard this conversation and said: “I had to write the same piece for my community, the TED video about golden circle helped me a lot”.

I just wanted to share this video because selling an enterprise2.0 initiative is not selling what you’re going to do and how, but WHY you’re going to do it.

Review book IBM Lotus Connections 2.5 planning and implementation

larger coverMy review for the book IBM Lotus Connections 2.5. My conclusion: it covers all the aspects of the implementation, but the book has been written for multiple target audiences.

2.0 adoption in the enterprise webinars, good stuff

Council around adoption of enterprise2.0 initiativesYesterday I attended the 2.0 adoption in the Enterprise ‘after’ webinar and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of information. After the webinar I was wondering why I liked the webinar so much and this morning it hit me: the presenters we’re speaking from their own experiences. It was no b****t story by some consultant who feels enterprise2.0 is hot and needs to say something about it. So for you’ll enterprise2.0 consultants out there, no more theoretical stories before you’ve proven you actually have gotten your hands dirty!

If you want to listen to the rerun of the first two webinars, register here (it’s sponsored by Newsgator). I’m sure you don’t get to regret it. I included the slides in this post.

The split of enterprise social software user adoption

I totally agree with Ross Mayfield and Michael Idinopulos; to get people using social software you should embed social software (Human Software as we like to call it at e-office) in their day-to-day work. Every project we do with enterprise social software is about finding ways to replace the existing process this software or use it in such a way that people can do their work more easily. For example replace the external project site with wiki’s and blogs and co-author a tender in a wiki instead of e-mailing the document in progress to the 5 authors.

The suites we typically use consist mostly of the following parts; profiles, blogs, wiki’s, filesharing, social bookmarking, communities, activities (which is Lotus Connections specific). What we found out during projects is that people are a bit overwhelmed by all these possibilities, so we would like to start with a small subset of functionality: profiles, blogs and filesharing for example.

Project evaluations have also taught us that people see the most value in collaboration and embedding enterprise social software in their day-to-day work. This  involves other functionality (wiki’s for example) than organizations like to start with. Hence the enterprise social software adoption split.

The social software matrix

Sometimes there are websites worth mentioning because their just good. The socialsoftwarematrix.org is such a website. I met one of the authors behind this site, Frank Wolf at the NLLUG, the Dutch Lotus User Group. Frank is one of the people behind the brilliant Enterprise 2.0 knowledge management series on Slideshare. He mentioned that he was working on an initiative where all the big enterprise 2.0 vendors and their products would be compared in a way everybody could understand, and that’s what this website is.

Hello world!

Welkom op mijn blog. Dit is de plek waar ik mijn gedachten rondom Het Nieuwe Werken, Enterprise Social Software, Enterprise2.0 en Social media ga delen. Daarnaast ben ik ook een aardige gadget freak, dus alle leuke nieuwe ontwikkelingen op dit gebied zal ik ook zeker onder de aandacht brengen.

Ik zit nog te twijfelen in welke taal ik ga bloggen, het zal waarschijnlijk een mix van Engelse en Nederlandse blogs worden.

Veel leesplezier!
