  • Collaboration drivers
    23,000 employees
    5,000 new hires this year
    55%+ On client sites, many on day 1
    Geographically dispersed offices
    Outlook defacto collaboration tool
    Need easy access to relevant information - Sir Mervs

    Consolidated Systems
    Metadata & Taxonomies
    Access Controlled
    Accessible vs. Discoverable
  • Challenges & Lessons Learned
    Search didn’t work
    Outlook was still easier
    Didn’t provide for open collaboration
    Redundant information silos
    Focus on systems not people
    There are a number of existing one-stop-shops
    Learning the hard way - laverrue
  • Hello
    • No single solution
    • Open Source COTS & Custom PHP
    • Aggregated content
    • Targeted the individual users
    • Focused on tacit knowledge
    • Integrated with existing systems
    • Open with full attribution
    • Tagging and linking allow users to
    aggregate data
    • Online in under six months
    • Adoption strategy is key 50%
  • Tying it all together … FAST
    Integrated search across multiple knowledge stores
    Provided Enterprise Search Portal to help find documents people, communities and other resources
    Staff Availability Tool, ADOCs, and other search driven applications
    Bridge Hello and iShare 03 with an eye on the future
    … FAST provides a single platform for employees to find people and information to meet their business needs
    Evolution the Ride - Kevin Dooley
  • Changing our ways
    • Change management strategy was vital to “learn to work together differently”
    • Viral plays a part and needs an organized push
    • Plan for education – the tools are easy, but the concepts are new to many
    • Define internal social strategies
    • Demonstrate value fast
    • Involve core support allies: M&C, L&D, IS, HR, and Legal - kiwinz
  • What works
    Active and visible executive support. More than messaging, business use.
    Market as an ongoing campaign well beyond launch
    Help your champions support your goals
    Be a visible participant
    Elevate tactical business uses
    Change management plan must be agile
    Incorporate metrics early - @rhettmaxwell
  • What we need
    Refocus on the explicit content
    Integrated document management solution
    Incorporate the benefits of Enterprise 2.0 methodology into structured projects and team sites
    Build on the success of Hello, and continue to drive adoption
    Provide spaces for secured collaboration
    Simplify knowledge management across the firm
    Users want one reliable source for information, no matter the structure
    To-do list book – koalazymonkey - http://
  • What we’ll do - 2007

    Clear Vision – C.P. Storm-
  • Lessons Learned in Enterprise 2.0
    Obtain leadership buy-in
    Bring the right people together
    Develop a shared understanding of the problem
    Understand the operating environment
    Develop a customized solution
    Actively and continuously promote adoption
    Build communities
    Evaluate and improve
  • So lets take a look…
  • Closing
    Has to be about people and adoption not the tools
    Tools have to be flexible and support evolution
    Data has to be dynamic
    Data location is not important to your user
    Obtain leadership buy-in
    Bring the right people together
    Develop a shared understanding of the problem
    Understand the operating environment
    One size does not fit all
    Actively and continuously promote adoption
    Build authentic communities
    Evaluate and improve
