  • Jive is the communication and collaboration platform for modern, mobile business. And it does three key things:First of all it helps you engage, train and align your workforce with our portal capabilities. Second, it drives employee productivity with our social collaboration capabilities. And third, it helps engage and support your customers and partners with our external communities. And across all of this, we make it possible to integrate and extend the platform so you deliver a great experience to your users as well as fit into your current and future technology stack.
  • Knowledge Management context of:Hearts & Minds, not just Fingers – the most valuable knowledge is in people’s heads not what they write and they share that through personal interactionTime - just in time not just in caseLive - knowledge should not be an aged artefact but rather a living, breathing, vibrant, deliverable capabilityValue - knowledge provides business value if it is reused. Having a large quantity of artefacts that are not reused is of no value to anyone
  • Sharing is a basic human trait:People by their nature like to share - but they do this through personal contact with other peopleKM does not need 'culture change', approaches need to reflect the culture of the organisationConnecting people and forming conversations and communities around activities is part of the human social fabricStand in the shoes of the individual and think 'what is in it for me' and base explanations on this perspective
  • The story with this graphic is as follows:When a client/ customer comes to your organisation they expect the knowledge of your organisation to be delivered by each and every person.The reality is that each person has a limited personal network and the resources (be they communities, specialists, people) they know of are a subset of the whole. Their slice of the pizza is relatively smallIf the person is a ‘new joiner’ their slice of the pizza is even smaller, possibly with only access to the corporate intranetThe objective of Knowledge Management, enabled by Social Technologies is to make available/ visible the People, Specialists, Communities, and System/ Resources available across the organisationIs this about adding business value - AbsolutelyBasic tennants of business value:Effective team members - based on the strength, growth and sustainability of their personal networkFinding the people with requisite skills and experienceLearning and developing people in the context of a topicFinding exemplar experiences whether in conversations, documents, communities that I know have authority/ credibilityProviding a forum for teams to coalesce and work togetherAccelerate innovationProvide value to each individual - manage the pennies as they become pounds
  • Making it relevant to you and asking questions:Find the person, ask them specifically – solves the “You don’t know what you know until you’re asked: problem – all about point in time and contextContribute to an already existing thread
  • Authority:Network effectLikes, ratings, commentsSharing & developing knowledgeCoPs (example)Social learningSpecific projects - bids, projects, developing material
  • Locating someone who knows: Expertise search and profiles – in Jive you don’t only get self-declared expertise, you also get expertise endorsements and more importantly emerging experts where it’s clear from their body of work (working out loud?) that they know about this

  • 3. 3 © Jive confidential Engaging, connecting and mobilising Business value is not optimised by sharing static knowledge, it’s delivered by engaging the ideas, thoughts, emotion and interpretation of your people. True value is found in the instant – when the light bulb comes on and knowledge is shared and reused Enterprise Knowledge is a combination of: • Explicit knowledge – documented „just in case‟ • Tacit knowledge – uncovered „just in time‟ through conversation and collaboration
  • 4. 4 © Jive confidential Cultural Change or Cultural Fit Does your organisation consider itself ‘good’ at sharing knowledge? Possibly not at ‘just in case’ posting documented artifacts, but get people talking and they will probably share openly • Few business cultures are proactive about storing knowledge artifacts in databases • Most businesses cultures demonstrate that if you connect people they will share openly • Social technologies fit your existing culture rather than requiring cultural change (which is expensive and prone to failure) • Peer recognition – the greatest motivator • Self promotion • Noise reduction – how many times do you want to answer the same question
  • 5. 5 © Jive confidential The Organisational Grey • Delivering the knowledge of your organisation will involve connecting: – People to people – People to communities – People to information / systems • Expose your entire network, not just individuals personal subset
