Notes: You’ll recall also this slide where we briefly went across the phases of a group’s collaboration program. Today’s session will pick up where we left off and take a deeper dive of the Plan phase which includes the Prepare phase. I’ve also introduced a ‘Prepare’ phase which is really a pre-requisite to starting the Planning phase. We’ll go through why we need to prepare and what tasks define this phase. In the work plan template you’ll see a breakdown of tasks by each of these phases that will help you build, launch and support your group.
Accenture Groups is a collaboration program that allows people to connect cross-workforce, cross-entity cross-capability/industry and cross-location. Individuals need not be limited to the knowledge / insights present within their team.
Tags – Easy discovery of groups & content Tabs – One place to go to to participate in or initiate activity using a mix of tools Activity tweets & People connections - - Stubborn about surfacing people’s existing interactions.
Relationships is at the core of communities. Who do I build relationship with? Distinguish between colleagues and team members. The strength of communities is that it is open and that the boundaries are porous – thus facilitating connections that otherwise would not be discovered. Users are no longer consumers of content but want to be recognized / be more visible for their expertise as seen through their contributions. Move away from documents to more dynamic interaction outputs – Discussions, blogs, ideas, wiki, feeds, bookmarks, tags.
