Becoming Social Enterprise: a step-by-step process Setting-up the stage. Choosing the right business goal. Launching for success.
Step One: Setting-up the stage Decrease resistance (address fear, objections and negativity from employees and social teams) Find investmentresources (people, tools, time) Get leadershipsupport and selectgardeners and evangelists - usually early adopters who will help build awareness using case studies to help with adoption.
Step Two: Define a Business goal Define a business goal with specific expectations Increase productivity? Cost saving? Share knowledge? Increase sales? Competitive research? Innovation?... Select metrics to track successes and failures Metrics are based on business goal Asking employees to self-report their ROI is a great way to let they know that social media has a direct impact on the business and is not a nice-to-have or a cool thing to do
Step Three: Launch for success Focus on one business unit or group at a time Introduce gardeners and evangelists officially from top down Meet regularly to review objectives and progress Let word of mouth spread internally to other units or groups Learn from first experience and expand to other business units or groups
Step Four: Refine and Improve On-going training is needed as new tools appear and needs evolve Keep listening to people’s needs and challenges Foster the new social culture Innovation will come naturally
How does Enterprise 2.0 operate? How are communities used? How does Enterprise 2.0 create, market and communicate products?
Creating a product in Enterprise 2.0 Social media used in market research will gather enough data, insights and perspectives to answer questions such as:
Where are online conversations that are relevant to my product and innovation happening today?
What are those conversations about, and how do they impact my product and market?
Who are my detractors and promoters and what is tone of conversations on my brand and product (sentiment analysis)?
Creating a product in Enterprise 2.0 In enterprise 2.0, internal teams (research, engineering and marketing):
