  • How is Social Technology impacting on your workplace?
  • Ask for show of hands for each point - McKinsey Global InstitutionIn such a short time, social technologies has become a sweeping cultural, social and economic phenomenon.Hundreds of millions of people have adopted new behaviours using social media, conducting social activities on the internet, creating and joining virtual communities, organizing political activities. All the rituals and ties in which individuals and groups in society participate - from personal events such as weddings or daily gossip, to global happenings – play out on social platforms.Social Technologies have changed how millions of people live.People rely on online social connections – often people they have never met – for everythinkg from advice on what movie to watch to what to eat and how to lose weight. Writers, musicians are now publishing and performing via You Tube and blogs. Indeed, many behaviours that sociologists study – forming, maintaining and breaking social bonds – are now taking place online.
  • Ask for suggestions about this amount of time.
  • Untapped Potential – ask fro suggested %In groups talk about how your business could get more benefit from social Media.
  • Raise productivity of knowledge workers by 20% – 25%Organisations have to become fully networked enterprises – in both technical AND a behavioural senseRequires big changes in Management practices and Organisational behaviour.
  • Social Technologies are the products and services that enable social interactions in the digital realmPeople connect virtuallyIndividuals create, add, modify consume content and this participation is shared. These tools have been evolving for 40 years. They may not be called Facebook and Yammer and Twitter in the next decade but the Tools that exist will be still here
  • Social Media – Is it a drag, a curse – meaningless? Only for the celebrities.Can the tools be useful in the workplace or a complete waste of precious time?
  • This is NOT an Intranet site This is a Public site and provides information to anyone in the world.The trend is for more transparency and the corporate boundaries are blurring. Responsibility on the employee is to engage
  • Groups of people to jointly create and maintain content through contribution and collaboration. Unleash the wisdom of crowds and apply it to generating valuable information for people interested in a particular subject.
  • Why Blog?Accenture blogs feature thought leadership on a wide range of business issues, with a particular focus on helping companies achieve high performance. Here you'll also find blogs about emerging technologies and career experiences from select employees. The opinions of the writers do not necessarily reflect the position of Accenture on these subjects.Accenture develop software ie Facebook for HR.
  • Yammer - informal community across all departments Subgroups Quickly find experts across a large organisationBlogs – Managers newsletters to staff. Wikis - Personal telephone directory The other famous Social network is LinedIn.
  • 1. Introduce strategies and tools to make more money OR to make life easier for the workers.2. Understand Why before the How3. Higher levels of engagement are strongly related to higher levels of innovation. 59% of engaged employees say that their job brings out their most creative ideas against only 3% of disengaged employees (Gallup)Employees worldwide who know their managers as “people” are more likely to be engagedNot about policing and enforcing – it’s about empowering.Leaders have tremendous impact on culture and direction.Needs to be how employees work. Eg Single sign on to create a front door to the enterprise
  • Induct new employees and evaluate existing employees. Initiatives – Education and training, mentoring, Accept the Challenges and obstacles. Commit to the Course. Technologies and processes will change, new behaviours will surface Ability to respond to customer faster and more accurately. Knowledge repository of repeating issues and integrate customer feedback into products and services.Reduce stress and associated costs Employees feel more engaged, and fulfilled. It is easier for them to get their work done and greater sense of purpose. Greater flexibility in work environment and imporive work life balance.
  • Abuse includes excessive employee time spent:“chatting” about nonwork-related topicsOn external networksAttaching fellow employees or management.Strategies have to be introduced to handle this riskforbid nonworkrelatated conversationsCensoring critical opinionWelcoming critiquesEngaging in public conversation with the critics.Consumer privacy Work place security restrict access to social technologies.
