  8. 8. Develop a Strategy • Tie it to the company’s business strategy: e.g., increase collaboration, innovation; reduce costs through less duplication; increase quality and speed of decision making; increase employee engagement etc • Start small: do not roll-out a fully-featured solution to everybody. Start with a small subset of employees. Use them as the pilot test case and your success case. • Set targets and track metrics: these help show usage and adoption. Use the metrics to justify continued funding and ROI. • Create a business case that includes a well thought out budget that makes sense for your company. • Strong evangelists who know what they are talking about. Embrace early adopters. • Refer to case studies of successes at other companies • Position it as “a business platform,” avoid the “S” word (Andrew McAfee) • Decommission outdated tools; develop business case for integration: e.g., traditional KM solutions © Copyright 2010 2.0 Adoption Council.
