What is more important, the destination or the journey? “Do you understand decisions without context ?” “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end” ― Ernest Hemingway * “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” - Henry Ford ** * www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/journey ** www.notable-quotes.com
    • PROVOKE SOLUTIONS LIMITED A U C K L A N D M A N I L A W E L L I N G T O N S E A T T L E S I N G A P O R E #Is a social enterprise important? Is Yammer important to my business? • • • • • Staff retention Improved productivity More collaboration Innovation by discussion IP development & retention Can Yammer help & how? • • • • • Staff retention is higher if staff feel involved & informed Openness is a key to staff satisfaction Productivity & collaboration often improves if you provide modern tools Innovation is often a team sport IP needs to be documented
    • PROVOKE SOLUTIONS LIMITED A U C K L A N D M A N I L A W E L L I N G T O N S E A T T L E S I N G A P O R E #Provoke & Yammer | Back plot • We have about 140 employees • People in 3 different times zones • A project could have people from 4 locations working together • Content created everyday • We use Visual Studio, MS Office, SharePoint, Email + other things • Content should be stored in SharePoint
    • PROVOKE SOLUTIONS LIMITED A U C K L A N D M A N I L A W E L L I N G T O N S E A T T L E S I N G A P O R E #Provoke & Yammer | Today • • • • • We are “live” but not “alive”. We started with the free version. We now have the enterprise version. So far I would give our deployment 2/10. On a positive note we know we are a 2 out of 10 & we think we have a plan.
    • PROVOKE SOLUTIONS LIMITED A U C K L A N D M A N I L A W E L L I N G T O N S E A T T L E S I N G A P O R E #Provoke & Yammer | Learnings • • • • • • We need to have a Yammer "go live" and "keep alive" plan. Enterprise social is not Facebook so it's not going to miraculously just work. We need to provide a compelling reason why people should get into Yammer (WIFM?). Yammer needs to provide business value and personal value. Single sign-on is important to Provoke & so are the admin features of Yammer. We were missing a key message as to why Yammer.
    • PROVOKE SOLUTIONS LIMITED A U C K L A N D M A N I L A W E L L I N G T O N S E A T T L E S I N G A P O R E #Provoke & Yammer | Next steps • Agree with key stake holders in the business that Yammer is a tool for the business & they want to adopt it. • Define what we believe Yammer can do for Provoke's culture – “the conversation”. • Define a communications plan for Yammer for the business. • Fix a couple of technical issues. • Find some Yammer Champs (must include key business leaders and influencers).
    • PROVOKE SOLUTIONS LIMITED A U C K L A N D M A N I L A W E L L I N G T O N S E A T T L E S I N G A P O R E #Things to think about • • • • • • • Yammer is cloud only Today there is limited e discovery and auditing options (compared with Office 365) Global Admin is a truly global admin Yammer is really different to how “traditional” business works today Yammer has cross over with Lync, SharePoint, word, email etc people will ask where to do work Yammer “today” is not integrated into the Microsoft family If you don’t deploy Yammer (or an alternative) someone in the business might be deploying it (read will)
