Published on

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, or SharePoint social on premises where appropriate

  • Keeping in sync with our topic of CIO and CMO convergence… why would marketing care about ESNs? Often these are internal.Answer? Well, ESN tools can (and probably should) be leveraged for external use too.
  • Enterprise: Shared, common, accessible to all users within an (often large, national or global) organizationSocial: By, for and about peoplePeople to peoplePeople to filesPeople to dataConversations and collaboration around all of the aboveNetworks: Opportunities for many different nodes. Value is in breaking down silos and getting faster, more effective collaboration across those silos.Traditionally an internal facing application

  • Most of SharePoint acquisition and deployment projects are led by IT, and a good portion without significant user training.Training is Vital for Increasing Adoption But is Very Rare – Only 21% Are Trained Today. This can generally lead to adoption failure or disappointing results. Many organizations do not have the resources or proficiency to implement best practices for SharePoint training and engagement. As such, adoption may spread ad hoc from tech-savvy/Gen Y users across their peers, department, and the organization. 35% of Total Users are Learning via Coworkers, and 40% are Rating this method as ‘Very Helpful’.The Best Way to Drive Adoption is to Involve Both IT & Business Units.Organic and Viral AdoptionDrivers: SharePoint solves business challenge, Received work requests/tasks in SP, SharePoint helped co-worker at job, “Power users” naturally tech savvyBlockers: Lack of relevant training, Perceived lack of need for job, Generation gap/lack tech savvyEnterprise/IT Led AdoptionDrivers: Leadership starts to use SharePoint, Needed to better serve clients, Part of Microsoft upgrade cycle, Bad experience with other collab toolBlockers: Lack of resources to train, Insufficient deployment plan, Little user participation/feedback

  • Adoption Drivers:Leadership runs business through SharePoint:Sets example that SharePoint is critical tool for all employees.Users Excited & Engaged about SharePoint:Involving users in defining UX, planning deployment and building solution makes them personally invested.Start small: Build on one success at a time:Roll out and train SharePoint incrementally. Share incremental successes to encourage viral adoption.Well thought out plan/infrastructure: IT/Business Unit collaboration integral to successful, well-governed SharePoint deployment.Do not get complacent:Ongoing IT involvement helps plan for the future and ensure SharePoint remains updated relevant and useful.

  • Looks a lot like…
  • Yammer looks a lot like Facebook. There’s a certain paradigm that people are used to. Why change it? It’s just like how Google Docs mirrors Microsoft Office right down to the file menu. People have been using this interface for years and are familiar with it. Take advantage of that.
  • So you’ve got some people in. But once they’re in, how do you get everyone else engaged? Not everyone will fit this category.
