  21. 21. Implementing Social Networks• Building a process to ensure people fill their profile and add colleagues o Small group training sessions o Part of onboarding• Executive buy in and participation• Updating status – chore or fun?• Use as channel for news, announcements etc. to get people used to getting information this way• Assign local champions
  22. 22. McKinsey Study Recommendations• Integrate the use of Web 2.0 into employees’ day-to-day work activities.• Continue to drive adoption and usage. Benefits appear to be limited without a base level of adoption and usage.• Break down the barriers to organizational change. Fully networked organizations appear to have more fluid information flows, deploy talent more flexibly to deal with problems, and allow employees lower in the corporate hierarchy to make decisions.• Apply Web 2.0 technologies to interactions with customers, business partners, and employees. External interactions are correlated with self-reported market share gains.
  23. 23. Helping the process along• Set up recommendations for colleagues o based on email analysis o Based on SharePoint activity• Enhanced – Centralized activity stream• Outlook Integration
