Interview with a Millennial
  7. 7. Interview page 150 in The Digital Workplace in the Connected Organization. “ Millennials are “change-ready”. They are intolerant to inertia. Although they have no monopoly on “change”, by nature they are very strong supporters of it. …. When it comes to collaboration, they expect to be able to know, find and comment on information. They want to be heard. Their values are trust, transparency, openness and balance. They challenge traditional processes and organizations. “ Grégoire Charpe-Civatte, Digital Workplace Communications Manager in a global industrial enterprise. Management-wise, I believe they are looking for inspiring leaders rather than control-oriented managers. They want to be judged based on their contribution rather than their seniority level in the company. ….The ideal Gen Y organization dynamic is based on sharing expertise and working in cultures of smart ad-hoc partnerships.

  30. 30. Lexmark operates in an industry that is constantly and rapidly changing, so business agility is key to survival and prosperity. True agility requires ongoing information sharing and collaboration across the entire enterprise, which means that we must provide our employees with the ability, opportunity and motivation to collaborate. We have found that three interlocking components are essential for this. ““ … In Practice Case page 34 in The Digital Workplace in the Connected Organization.
  31. 31. “ “A flexible BYOD device policy and cloud-based applications make it easy for users to access our systems whenever and wherever they need to. Flexible HR policies give employees the freedom to work on their own terms. For years we have had a liberal work policy that lets many employees decide when and how often they work from home versus coming in to the office. We deployed our social platform in 2012, and want our employees to “work out loud” – to work in a transparent, sharing environment. It can be a difficult transition shifting from emails with file attachments to wikis and discussion threads, so we try to find as many different ways as possible to bring people into the system…. When a social platform is full of engaged employees, the results can be powerful. Dennis Pearce Enterprise Knowledge Architect, Lexmark In Practice Case page 34 in The Digital Workplace in the Connected Organization.

Despite being home bound, the Director who received the call posted a message across the forums asking how other cities had coped in similar situations. Overnight, responses came in from Manila, London, Brisbane, Tokyo, San Francisco, Hamburg, Dublin and Singapore. Rich, detailed explanations with photos of solutions. A presentation was given to the client’s chair the following lunchtime and their trust in our services soared.

  41. 41. 41 •  Concrétiser ROI par success stories, témoignages, benchmarks •  « Identifier des projets fédérateurs ou exemplaires existants pour rendre concret l’avantage, capitaliser sur des initiatives. » •  “Do not fall into the ROI game. •  Focus on examples, external or internal, that illustrate business value.” •  « Relais de haut niveau pour cascader dans tout le groupe » •  “You often have to do a sales pitch to individual senior managers. Find one person who ‘gets it’ who can then sell it across the Board level through peer pressure. For this to work, you need to have a toolkit to give to the senior manager to use in their discussions with their peers.” Top management does not understand or wants to see ROI
  42. 42. 42 •  Global versus local conflicts –  “Accept the situation: this ‘conflict’ is normal and common in most organizations. Understand that there are many different ways of doing things, and be flexible. Build on your current situation, do not try to “destroy” it . Find out what can bring your different locations/offices together. Meet people in person, and get involved with them. Focus on this common ground, even if it is not ideal.” •  Créer une « infrastructure humaine », une communauté ‘digital workplace’ qui participent aux décisions –  « Définir 1 sponsor + 1 ambassadeur par pays + animateurs communautés » Balance between common and specific
  43. 43. 43 •  Réussir à prioriser (contenus, processus) –  Build "persona" based on "how do you work" and not "what do you need from the digital workplace”. See what the persona need in common. •  Be alert to process dysfunctions. •  Use them as opportunities to rethink how people work. •  Start simple. Be concrete. –  “It is hard to get the organization to understand and focus on the “digital workplace” so start instead with something very concrete: create incentives for people to complete their profiles. See if you can use technology to retrieve profile information from other sources (LinkedIn?).” Adoption
