  • 4. The human as central element…. stay ‘ in sync’? stay ‘ in touch’? stay ‘ in flow’? stay ‘ in control’?
  • 5. Improve social networking @ Océ
    • To create a more open, transparent and connected Océ, where knowledge workers can connect freely and quickly around the globe. Socializing our intranet.
    • The use of media is rapidly changing around the world. Twitter is taking off, also in the business environment. Yammer is the more secure internal version of Twitter.
    • We are currently experimenting with new media. Yammer is one of these experiments.
  • 6. What is Yammer?
    • Yammer is a hosted enterprise microblogging site for all Océ
    • Yammer supports you to:
      • tell your colleagues what you are doing
      • ask your colleagues a question
      • … even the ones you don’t know (yet)!
  • 7. How did we start Yammering?
    • started on Sept 22, 2008
    • started with some Twitter users, 4
    • emergently grows by filling in profile (org chart) = implicit invite
    • without advertising: 97 members, members from 5 countries, 10 departments,15 update daily
    • one group, HR
    • after a month, made short presentation to explain experiment and answer questions (security e.g.)
  • 8. Future of Yammer @ Océ?
    • explicit advertising
    • make more official
    • in Communication toolset
  • 9. Business case for Yammer?
    • several stories
    • ‘ ambient awareness’
  • 10. Evaluation Yammer @ Océ
    • connect to email. Site is too far away to regularly update your status
    • connecting this to key business processes
    • integrate in intranet
  • 11. Rabobank case
    • Challenge: Increase knowledge exchange and connectedness in a group of project managers.
    • Issue 1: Sharing knowledge about organisational context
    • - Who has experience with this stakeholder?
    • - I have an assignment at Insurance, who can tell me about the culture and the issues
    • Issue 2: Access to procedural knowledge
      • - Information on tricky steps in the process (e.g. how to make a good Prince2 PID)
  • 12. What obstacles to knowledge sharing exist?
    • top-3 of experienced obstacles:
    • we don’t know what we’re good at
    • information is badly accessible
    • We don’t see each other enough / we don’t know what the other is doing
    helemaal oneens oneens neutraal eens helemaal eens CULTUUR ORGANISATIE MIDDELEN WERKWIJZE HOUDING
  • 13. Collaboration and knowledge sharing
    • striking
    • Not much insights in other peoples results (no utilizing of cross-fertilization)
    • Not much utilizing of less obvious connections
    • Intranet is a wall to ex-colleagues

  • 14. Social media experiment
    • Bonus points : I go for it, I see benefits
    • Penalty points : This doesn’t fit me, this takes to much time and trouble in relation to potential benefit
  • 15. Highlights of Top-3 of experiments
    • MySite
      • ‘ portal’ for daily activities, directly valuable
      • Own work easily made visible for colleagues
      • Risk: different guidelines and policies needed for information storage and access
    • OurSite
      • Handy tool to get overview
      • risk: is there enough motivation to keep it up-to-date?
      • risk: Do Sharepoint templates match our real needs?
    • Twitter
      • Low threshold to feel connected
      • Risk: fun aspect versus professional conversation
  • 16. Highlights of Top-3 of experiments
    • Costs and benefits for knowledge sharing
    • Emphasis on personal perspective: ‘what’s in it for me’, less attention to colleague/department perspective
    • Much pressure on efficiency, ‘it must not take much time, no shattering of attention’
    • Preference for conservative means, unknown is unpopular?
  • 17. theses
    • Truly understanding the way a knowledge worker works is the key to successful knowledge management projects
    • In general Intranets wrongly don’t support social networking functionality.
    • Email is the habitat of knowledge workers. All new tools should be able to plugin to the email client.
