  11. 11. The 50 Foot Collaboration Rule • Workers are not likely to collaborate very often if they are more than 50 feet apart: Take Away: Surmounting this obstacle is now • Even with traditional electronic possible with newer aids such as telephone, e-mail, and collaboration remote video techniques
  12. 12. Motivation and Trends• Knowledge workers currently spend 20% of their time looking for the information they need to do their jobs (1 day a week) Source: Forrester• Intranets have frequently failed to address the informational and collaborative needs of workers. Most are relatively static and infrequently updated.• Approximately 42% of the economies of developed nations are “tacit interactions”, meaning complex collaborative problem solving carried out by knowledge workers. Source: McKinsey• Organizations that adopt new collaborative tools like social for several years see the amount of reusable knowledge grow much more rapidly that before. Source: Jive• Between 80%-90% of the information that organizations have spend hundreds of billions collecting in IT systems over the last 30 years is inaccessible by most workers. Source: Various including Gartner, IDC, others Goal: Address these issues and make information easier to find/share as well as faster to access while also improving knowledge flow between associates.

  29. 29. Intranet Congress 2011Case Study: Investment Banking • Dresder Kleinwert Wasserstein (DrKW) • Used for Prof. Andrew McAfee’s article introducing Enterprise 2.0 • Included both blogs and wikis – Uptake was not automatic – “depended greatly on decisions made and actions taken by managers”
  30. 30. Intranet Congress 2011The DrKW Story• Pioneers in the IT department at its London office sent a program called Socialtext to several groups to see how it might be used to facilitate different IT tasks.• The wiki program spread so quickly that DrKW then decided to launch its own corporate wiki.• By October, 2006, the banks 5,000 employees had created more than 6,000 individual pages and logged about 100,000 hits on the companys official wiki.
  31. 31. Intranet Congress 2011Adoption Challenges at DrKW• Initial efforts at Dresdner confused employees and had to be refined to make the technology easier to use.• More important than tweaking the technology was a simple edict from one of the proponents: – “Dont send e-mails, use the wiki.”• Gradually, employees embraced the use of the wiki, seeing how it increased collaboration and reduced time-consuming e-mail traffic.
  32. 32. Intranet Congress 2011DrKW Continued 1) Ease of Use 2) Little or no upfront structure
  33. 33. Intranet Congress 2011 DrKW: The Role Managers Played• Providing a receptive culture – “I’m not sure wikis would work in a company that didn’t already have 360-degree performance reviews”• Offering a common platform – Reduced fragmentation and encouraged connections between different groups• An informal rollout – Reduced constraints and policy• Managerial support – Leading by example
  34. 34. Intranet Congress 2011Key Lessons Learned at DrKW • Lesson #1: Viral adoption works. Once one group became committed wiki users, both companies say, the trend inevitably spread. – In March, 2006, the Dresdner Kleinwort wiki had 20,000 monthly hits. By October, that number had quintupled, often because one unit convinced another to start using wikis. • Lesson #2: Simple, clear messages about the tools and participation by leaders leads to the necessary behavior changes in employees • Lesson #3: Not just better collaboration. A new type of collaboration: – It was “a watershed moment to find a tool that orchestrates a virtual free-flowing jam session of ideas across different groups and units within the company—something thats crucial for an organization that thrives on out-of-the-box thinking.”
