Thinking Out Of The Inbox - More Collaboration Through Less E Mail - Next08 Thinking Out Of The Inbox - More Collaboration Through Less E Mail - Next08 Presentation Transcript

  • ® Thinking out of the Inbox - More Collaboration through less e-mail Luis Suarez Knowledge Manager, Community Builder & Social Computing Evangelist http://elsua.net http://twitter.com/elsua BlueIQ Friday, May 16, 2008 1
  • IBM Software Group Who Am I? 2 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 2 Friday, May 16, 2008 2 Luis Suarez has been working in IBM for over 11 years as a Knowledge Manager and Community Builder and the last five of those years he has been working as well as a Social Computing Evangelist helping various different business units with their rampant adoption of social software within the corporate firewall and beyond. He is currently working for the IBM Software group where he is leading a community of Social Software Ambassadors helping spread the message on the potential impact that social computing has within the areas of finding experts, finding information and changing the knowledge sharing culture. He currently maintains three different blogs, one internal and two external (http://elsua.net), where he gets to talk about Knowledge Sharing, Collaboration, Communities and Social Computing as well as the place where he has lived in for the last four years: Gran Canaria.
  • IBM Software Group Agenda  Session Description: - This deck explores the social impact Web 2.0 technologies are creating for individuals and organizations as well as its role as an enabler for collaboration and innovation  Key Learning Points: - The changing nature of collaboration - The role of communities in helping accelerate the adoption of social computing - Enterprise social software - Examples of social software in the enterprise, its Web 2.0 characteristics and benefits vs. traditional collaboration tools 3 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 3 Friday, May 16, 2008 3 • As we’ve been discussing, the era of Web 2.0 is about connecting people and amplifying the power of people working together – • There is of course a technology foundation consisting of a number of maturing technologies and techniques (such as open standards, Web services, and service oriented architecture) but fundamentally given the shifts in culture and behavior occurring --- the real impact comes through when apply that technology to achieve the social aspects of Web 2.0 – the people, the connections that they make and wish to make
  • IBM Software Group Think about how you work.....the reality of the modern world is that you just can't do it alone Think about how often you connect with someone to: - Find information - Get an answer to a question - Ask for advice - Bounce off an idea - Get another opinion If it is often, it is not a surprise The reality is that: - There is too much information for us to manage it by ourselves - Information from people is richer - We all need to connect and feel connected 4 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 4 Friday, May 16, 2008 4 • Are you smiling? Laughing out loud? • The reason it may make us laugh is because the awful truth is that it’s terrible to be alone… • And we just saw, our increasingly project-based work environments preclude this. You just can’t work that way. • And yet too many of us feel that we have no good way to connect with others. CLICK
  • IBM Software Group Collaboration allows us to tap into the power of people: BTE2 “behind the eyes and between the ears” We go to others because we want to:  Hear the story behind the document  Learn from an expert’s ideas and opinions  Confirm what we think we know  Decide what we should pay attention to  Keep up with fast-changing information  Feel connected to someone who has similar interests and knowledge BTE2 5 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 5 Friday, May 16, 2008 5 BTE is a catchy, graphic way to describe the complex concept of tacit knowledge… Information is a by-product – what we are looking for is to collaborate – to build the relationships and tap into the knowledge and capabilities available via the relationship CLICK
  • IBM Software Group And why people connect centers on the same basic things… People Places Things quot;I need someone to quot;We need a quot;I need to find explain this to mequot; place to informationquot; collaboratequot; Tacit Context Explicit 6 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 6 Friday, May 16, 2008 6 • We begin with the Explicit – “I need to find information”  • Followed by Tacit – for the information I am seeking, “I need someone to explain this to me – who?”  • Concluding with contextual – When I find who, “We need a place where we can meet and share’ For a number of years, IBM has been heavy with explicit knowledge (e.g., GBS KnowledgeView, GTS ICM AssetWeb), nowadays, focus is shifting to tacit within a specific context --- how to make use of a tacit exchange to bring forward the explicit in the correct context is key CLICK
  • IBM Software Group It’s all about people … and the communities in which they are involved… 7 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 7 Friday, May 16, 2008 7 • So – shall we concur? • We’re in broad agreement that collaboration is about people! And not only people but also the communities [CLICK] in which individual people are involved. • People participate in many different types “communitiesquot; – defined here as formal and informal – from structured and stable (your co-workers for example) • – to the other end of the spectrum with highly mobile, diverse networks and communities of interest… each grouping is a type of community (yes, a team is a type of community) • This concept of community is fundamental to Web 2.0 and social networking which we’ll get to in a few minutes. CLICK

CLICK
  • IBM Software Group … And the key capabilities and tools needed for communities of people to collaborate 8 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 8 Friday, May 16, 2008 8 • And as important as our recognition that collaboration is about people and the communities in which individual people are involved… • It’s also about the key capabilities or actions people take to ENABLE their collaboration with others [CLICK] or • Looking through a different lens, its about the kinds of tools manifesting in the web today that are ENABLING greater opportunities for collaboration and social networking to occur. • See the connections building?

CLICK
  • IBM Software Group So if people are the nodes, and the connections are their relationships, what improves “bandwidth”?  Trust is key to information sharing and collaboration  Research* has identified two types of trust that are critical to collaboration - Benevolence based trust: what others have experienced of your behavior and conduct -> can I work with you? - Competence based trust: what others believe you know -> do you know your stuff?  Knowledge sharing doesn’t require a strong tie, but it requires trust* - “people reported getting their most useful knowledge from trusted weak ties” * Source: Trust and knowledge sharing: A critical combination, IKO White Paper, 2002 9 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 9 Friday, May 16, 2008 9 • Trust is key to information sharing and collaboration (one of the key reasons why information from people is preferable to other sources) • Research* has identified two types of trust that are critical to collaboration: benevolence-based trust and competence-based trust.  Benevolence based trust is based on what others have experienced of your behaviour and conduct  Competence based trust is based on what others believe you know • This research also identified that knowledge sharing did not require a strong tie, but rather that the trust was there **  “people reported getting their most useful knowledge from trusted weak ties” CLICK
  • IBM Software Group 13 http://flickr.com/photos/rooreynolds/509145604/ 10 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 Friday, May 16, 2008 10 • Maybe this is your idea of social networking. You’d be right. • It’s all those lulls and coffee breaks between presentations where you really get to connect with others. • Too bad we can only attend conferences like these once year, twice if we’re really lucky… CLICK
  • IBM Software Group 15 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 11 Friday, May 16, 2008 11 • Finally, Maybe this is your idea of social networking (and an application of social software – more on that later). This is Second Life, one of many virtual worlds… • Again, it’s a place to meet people… • But in reality, who has time to figure out how to use this software and make it part of their daily work behavior, other than folks dedicated to this medium? • something to think about… again CLICK
  • IBM Software Group http://flickr.com/photos/keithmuth/202810291/ 14 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 12 Friday, May 16, 2008 12 • Or, maybe this is your idea of social networking. Again, you’d be right! • Who says you have to connect to your colleagues purely over business topics? • Or conversely, how many ‘social’ situations have led to business discussions and opportunities? CLICK
  • IBM Software Group  Platform across  Social software: Organizations are considering how they the enterprise  Blogs will shift from private and controlled and beyond  Wikis environments to public and dynamic  Online  Social bookmarks reputation  Tagging collaboration  RSS feeds  Voting Public  Virtual worlds  Podcasts and videocasts  Communities  Team rooms  Websites and  Forums portals  Web  Online presence conferencing and instant  Expertise messaging profiles  Individuals  Books and journals  Taxonomies  Data, information, and  Directories documents in shared  Classrooms As new sources and databases  Conferences methods to share  Telephone  Email Private knowledge appear, none of Time Traditional Web1.0 Web2.0 13 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 13 Friday, May 16, 2008 13 • Graphical message of Web 2.0 evolution from a collaboration pov • So, it’s no surprise that organizations are trying to figure out what they need to do to make the shift themselves from the ‘old’ to the ‘new’ way of working – of competing – of innovating – of thriving… CLICK Bottom – Point in time, private, content complete / Top – All the time, public, less perfect
  • IBM Software Group Enterprise social software is about:  Driving innovation into products faster  Making the new generation more productive, more knowledgeable, faster  Harnessing the knowledge of the wise, before they retire  Being more responsive to customers, with knowledge from subject experts you may or may not know 14 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 14 Friday, May 16, 2008 14 • Enterprise social software is conceptually about being more responsive to customers, with subject expert’s knowledge. • It’s also about making it really simple for people and communities to collaborate! • So what is considered social software? Let’s take a look! CLICK
  • IBM Software Group The Way Collaboration Should Be Source: Wikinomic’s “Wiki collaboration leads to happiness” 15 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 15 Friday, May 16, 2008 15

  • IBM Software Group Summary – What does it mean to Use Web 2.0? 1. Web 2.0 will replace Web 1.0 methods (not all, but many investments need to be shifted) vs. simply added on top of them 2. Web 2.0 is about allowing for the conversation to happen, not publishing – have more people do the publishing and communities will create themselves 3. Web 2.0 moves from hierarchy and navigation to finding what you want through tagging and other capabilities to guide you to what is interesting to you 4. Web 2.0 is no longer about storing in folders and bookmarks, but about changing the way we organize data by tagging and use technology to cut through the clutter 5. It is not about mass marketing – the form of communication is ‘one to few’ – it’s about communicating to specific audiences Building a community ≠ Running a social networking tool 18 18 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 Friday, May 16, 2008 18 • What It Means to Use Web 2.0 – • Web 2.0 is part of the evolution of the web. Need to get from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 and Web 2.0 before 3.0 - can’t skip any steps. Simply implementing the technologies isn’t Web 2.0. • Client Example: Dresdner Kleinwort and investment bank based in Germany, has replaced its email system with a wiki – its allows people to set up pages for specific projects, and invites anyone to collaborate: edit text, add comments, hold discussions, and link to other pages. In short, it removed the need to send e-mails. The company went so far as to issue an edict: don't send e-mails, use the wiki. CLICK
  • IBM Software Group Summary – Biggest challenge for corporations moving through Enterprise 2.0 is the needed paradigm shift 1. Cultural/behavioral shift is needed 2. May need to eliminate barriers between partners and end customers 3. Is there a generation gap or not? 4. Get everyone on board with similar agenda 5. Being more consistent across specific experimental platforms ….platforms should reinforce each other rather than going off in different directions (see #4) 6. Have to keep at it to make it work – this is not a tweak to existing things it’s a step forward and have to continually work on it 7. Legal/Security/Ethics Challenges - Defining what is and is not allowed to be released to the public and setting codes of conduct for employees on the Web (already done in IBM with the Social Computing Guidelines) quot;Advice to the CEO: It's now a two-way conversation. Listen, respond, and talk intelligently. Stop dictating to your customers [or partners]. It's your customers, not you, that have the power.” – Forrester: Web 2.0 and the CEO, Aug. 6, 2007 19 19 © Copyright IBM Corporation 2007 Friday, May 16, 2008 19 1. For example, many of the emails we send out to partners (that they seldom read) might be replaced by writing in blogs or contributing to wikis, using email simply to alert partners where to go to for the information  Can’t take a wait and see approach – we – need to demonstrate leadership here  Allow others to drive the conversation – can’t control everything  Can’t be too protective of ourselves  Speak in a simpler language 2. … 3. … 4. Large companies with many people // Everyone has their own agenda and ideas  difficult for people to agree 5. ... 6. … 7. … CLICK
