Microsoft has gone social in a big way with Yammer - but are you ready for it? A successful social solution must give end users the foundational tools needed to effectively collaborate with coworkers, clients and partners while maintaining control of access, security and content. Each business has a different sweet spot when it comes to creating an engaging social environment that drives collaboration and meaningful dialogue. An enterprise social network's success is dependent on unearthing your employees' key motivational drivers, aligning the solution to your company's culture, your vision for leveraging cloud-based solutions, and tailoring a strategy to fit.

In this slideshare, we take a look at what planning for Yammer success really entails, and the importance of a social maturity assessment, community use case planning and a communication plan. We also discuss the value of a Yammer pilot.

Funny you should ask
    • Plan: Social Strategy Workshop • Identify your stakeholders • Identify your key communities • Then ask two key questions: –What’s in it for the team? –What’s in it for me? • Identify quick wins and advanced use cases
    • Excitement • Involve corporate communications • Utilize email templates from Yammer Success (or bring your own – we do) • Create a communication plan • Identify audiences, channels and schedules
