  15. 15. Today’s Speaker Kathryn Everest Sr. Director, Business Consulting Services Jive Software
  16. 16. More and more organizations are merging their social collaboration platform with their intranet platform Intranet • Corporate News / Stories • Corporate Directory • Internal & Executive Communications • Organizational “Micro- sites” • “Link Farms” – Links to applications and resources • Policies, procedures (SOP’s), forms, templates and other resources Collaboration • Project / Team-Based Collaboration • Committee, Working Groups • Self-organizing groups (such as Communities of Practice, Interest, Employee Resource Groups, Affinity Groups) Intent: •Find/discover information and resources to do your work •Be informed about company news and events •Learn about and engage with other parts of the organization (e.g. Procurement, Legal, HR, IT, etc) Intent: •Perform work •Connect/interact with groups of people
  17. 17. This is streamlining communication for employees without creating “another place to go” Social Intranet – where work gets done … plus social capabilities such as: •Individual communications (personal blogs, status updates/micro-blogs, private discussions and direct messages) •Feedback on content (comments, ratings, liking), discussions/questions/clarifications, sharing with others from inside your organization as well as external •“Social” profile, including a person’s activity, content and expertise •Follow people and topics of interest to the employee •Additional micro-site types (e.g. event-based, service-based, initiative-based) •Innovation / ideation initiatives •Missions and achievements •Notifications from Apps and other enterprise systems (e.g. Sharepoint) How I want it … (real time, digest, in my activity streams) Many ways to find and discover … including social search, through your network, Jive recommendations, What Matters and trending Where you need it … Outlook, Office, browser (Jive or Jive Anywhere), mobile Extended through … Apps, Jive Anywhere
  18. 18. However, social is also introducing new considerations • Choice – employees have more choice about what they pay attention to • Engagement – they expect to be able to interact and engage with the content, so you need to stay engaged • Network Effect & Influencers – there are others who can help you get your message out because employees are interested in what their peers think • Popularity & Trending – there are multiple opportunities to get your message heard • Citizen Journalism - there are more voices that you can draw upon And by mastering them – you’ll be in a better position
  19. 19. And mobile is changing the game Just as advertisers had to find a new way …
  20. 20. The role and nature of the Intranet are changing as a result We can no longer COUNT on 1.Everyone HAVING to go to the homepage to get what they need – and therefore getting people’s attention with compelling graphics and carousels 2.Moving onto the next item after something has been published 3.Having to attend endless meetings with business partners / have a strong network to find out what’s going on in their business areas 4.Relying on annual surveys to find out the effectiveness of the Communication group Are those days over? No – but they are quickly coming to an end …. And why?

  24. 24. … and therefore you can’t count on getting people’s attention with compelling graphics and carousels … You now have more options … You still have the home page, but for those who don’t have one, you also have:
  25. 25. … and therefore you can’t count on getting people’s attention with compelling graphics and carousels … You now have more options … • Custom Streams • Network Effect • Trending Content
  26. 26. 2. Moving onto the next item after something has been published
  27. 27. 3. Attending endless meetings with business partners to find out what’s going on in their business areas
  28. 28. Now you have better access to your customer © Jive confidential28 Find stories Conduct dialogues Learn what’s popular Identify misconceptions Use the Network Effect • Likes • Rating • Shares • Comments
  29. 29. 4. Relying on annual surveys to find out the effectiveness of the Communication group Know if your message is getting through in the moment Measurable impact Identify top people who refer your message to others Gauge organizational alignment and sentiment
  30. 30. Summary While the older models aren’t necessarily going to work in the new world of social and mobile – there’s MORE opportunity than before to: •Get your messages out •Know their impact and take action when necessary •Know what employees want to hear about And enable better communications © Jive confidential30
