  7. 7. #MeasureCollabSuccess The goal of this community initiative is to understand how organizations define, measure, and implement successful collaboration strategies. We have divided our efforts into three areas:  How do organizations define success?  How do organizations measure success?  How do organizations effectively implement these strategies?
  8. 8. If you haven’t defined the end result, how do you know when you’ve reached it?
  9. 9. “A nice to have, with little visible understanding of how collaboration is information flow, which helps the bottom line.” “They know it is important, but are resistant to new technology due to regulatory restrictions.” “They think it is the key to success and increased productivity, but haven’t wanted to invest in the tools to achieve it.” “Their idea of collaboration is sharing files.” “They understand the value and support it, but see it as a technology solution, not a people + technology solution.”
  10. 10. Some initial sampling:
  11. 11. How well do people within your organization collaborate?
  12. 12. Latest Survey: Implementing Successful Collaboration
  13. 13. “Never underestimate the amount of change management, training, and effort required to get people to collaborate effectively.” “Don’t be afraid to stumble. Do some experiments.” “Understand the goals, and work with leadership to ensure their visible support.” “Get everyone on the same page. Agree on goals, promote transparency and sharing (instead of working individually and in silos).” “Start by talking about your expectations. And decide on some initial metrics up front, refine over time as people start using the technology.” “Engage people in the planning process. Build solutions in small increments.”
