  • It can’t be the catering...




  • Regardless of the platform, many business requirements we see are still rooted in ‘traditional’ intranet thinking...
  • Are you still framing requirements in a basic way?

    Largely this will depend on the stage of development of your internal processes and culture
  • It’s amazing that even this first step is often not in place

    This is the main building block for any social networking initiative...
  • Do you mean top-down corporate messaging?

    Or do you mean value exchange through ongoing dialogue with staff and teams?
  • Collaboration is a vague aim - doomed to fail as an explicit goal

    Actually, it’s a second-order effect arising from doing work in a situated, contextual setting

  • Things have moved on and to take full advantage of the social affordances of the new generation of tools you need to take a much wider view of business requirements, and user needs
  • the social web show us how tobuild new structures that have
    both intimacy & scale,

    using trust networks to reduce friction& co-ordination costs
  • This is leading to a level of exposure, visibility and potentially risk, which you need to be ready to embrace and leverage
    Are you ready for this level of transparency?

  • Technology, society, and work are all changing at breakneck speeds, but businesses are not keeping pace.

    When these emerging trends work together, they call for a new kind of business – one that is distributed, collaborative, agile and better positioned to succeed.
