  25. 25. Let’s move on to pain points...
  26. 26. Top pain points Lack of executive support (33%) Lack of a business case (31%) Lack of IT support (31%) Internal policy concerns (29%) Source: Intranet 2.0 Global Study, 2009
  27. 27. Time to kill a few myths
  28. 28. Myth #1 “Social media is a waste of time” Employees with extensive digital networks are 7% more productive than their colleagues Source: MIT, 2009
  29. 29. Are smokers the most productive employees in your organization? commons.wikimedia.org Source: nyportraits.blogspot.com
  30. 30. Game plan to combat Myth #1 Find a champion – a “linchpin” Build a real business case. Show the value. Show the “why”. Use business metrics, not popularity ratings. Keep it small. Don’t start 15 projects at once. Keep it simple. Don’t scare the boss. Microblogging is easier to understand than a wiki
  31. 31. Myth #2 “Social media gives everyone a chance to complain.” Yes. But wouldn’t you rather have them do this behind the firewall instead of in a public forum?
  32. 32. Happy people tell three others. Unhappy people tell 17.
  33. 33. Have authentic conversations Think of technology like blogs, forums, and discussion boards as amplifying customer opinion rather than improving it.
  34. 34. 10 steps to authenticity 1. Don’t wait for conversation: Initiate it 2. Publish the real story of your company or organization 3. Publish your views on privacy and support (define your relationship) 4. Listen, internalize, and respond thoughtfully. 5. Help people learn about your product at their own pace 6. Make feedback a top priority (make it easy to provide) 7. Form a partnership with your customers (work with them) 8. Make authentic conversations a part of the culture 9. Anticipate and act on change 10. Hire a community manager Source: Joshua Porter
  35. 35. 10 greatest SMM mistakes 1. Lying (Karen video, Arla blog) 2. Ignoring (Dell Hell) 3. Denying (openly refusing to acknowledge a problem) 4. Arguing (corporate discussion boards) 5. Hyping (blatant promotion) 6. Gaming (padding ratings) 7. Hiding (no clear points of contact) 8. Hating (unwillingness to engage) 9. Censoring (removing negative comments) 10. Failure to embrace SM Source: Eric Reiss
  36. 36. Game plan to combat Fact #2 Don’t be defensive Start a conversation Apologize if you were wrong Turn your enemies into friends
  37. 37. Myth #3 “Social media causes information overload” No. Information overload is caused by information that is pushed. Socialized information is pulled.
  38. 38. Inform Help Promote Involve Pull Push
  39. 39. Myth #4 “Social media poses a huge security problem.” Not behind the firewall. The true danger of social media is addiction. (E-mail is a bigger security problem than Yammer.) Source: me
  40. 40. Source: yammer.com
  41. 41. Game plan to combat Myth #4 Understand that SM threatens your IT folks. Talk to them. Understand their concerns. The intranet may be their last bastion Make sure SM will not destabilize existing apps. Help IT identify suitable strategic technologies. Could a third-party hosted solution be the answer? Help them understand the “why”
  42. 42. Myth #5 “Social media can’t be documented.” Yes it can. More importantly, do you really need documentation for everything? How are you currently documenting e-mail? How many mails do you lose? Source: me
  43. 43. What’s the communication goal? Need to know? “I’ll be 10 minutes late to our meeting” Need documentation? “Jack has signed off on the production budget. We can now move forward.” Need both? “UK sales figures are down 7%. This could be relevant for the report you’re working on.”
  44. 44. Game plan to combat Myth #5 Differentiate between “need to know” and “need to save” Only archive the important stuff Embrace “one message per message” Choose the right tools for the job
  45. 45. Myth #6 “Social media isn’t real work.” Well, it often is real work – sharing information with colleagues, keeping them informed, helping them make better decisions. And it is usually a better use of their time than attending endless meetings. Source: me
  46. 46. Typical meeting 5-10 people All are 5-10 minutes late About half of these folks have no need to attend No agenda No record of decisions At least one irrelevant PPT presentation
  47. 47. Let’s do the math Number of attendees = 8 Average hourly wage = EUR 20 Average wasted time per meeting = 15 minutes 8 x 0.25 = 2 hours = EUR 40 40 x 45 weeks = EUR 1,800 per year And how many meetings does your company hold?
  48. 48. Game plan to combat Myth #6 Identify existing communications problems Show how SM can help effectivize meetings Show how SM can actually eliminate meetings Redefine “real” work
  49. 49. Just a spoonful of sugar… See the original clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrnoR9cBP3o Pay particular attention to the opening dialog.
  50. 50. Game plan to combat Myth #6 Identify existing communications problems Show how SM can help effectivize meetings Show how SM can actually eliminate meetings Redefine “real” work Maybe social media is our spoonful of sugar…
  51. 51. Grow the company Increase transparency Coordinate processes Loyalty Improve document management Why do we have intranets? Facilitate collaborative projects Build corporate culture Break down info silos Streamline workflow Ownership Share knowledge Find out what’s for lunch Ensure conformity
  52. 52. “The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.” Max de Pree CEO, Herman Miller, 1989
