Social collaboration is way more than a classic IT project! If proof were needed, then this study provides it. The cultural and organizational environment is key to the success of corresponding initiatives that in many cases are initiated, coordinated, and financed by the divisions or top-level management and only rarely by internal IT. Divisions in the UK have a pioneering position in this context – but not only because they are more open to networking applications, but also because the environment is right. Here rules for the use of networking services are established, employees have a high level of autonomy, and management plays an active role.
