Real World Tips & Tricks For Enterprise Social Collaboration

  1. 1. RICHARD HARBRIDGE My twitter handle is @RHarbridge, blog is http://RHarbridge.com, and I work at SPEAKER | AUTHOR | SUPER FRIENDLY
  2. 2. TRANSFORMING WORK WITH CULTURE & TECHNOLOGY… “Social Enterprise is implemented 80% through organization culture and 20% through technology.” - Gartner 20% Tech 80% Culture
  3. 3. Define Your Vision Identify Business Outcomes Plan to Work Social Evaluate, Adapt, & Iterate THE SOCIAL JOURNEY… Knowing the business outcomes, vision and goals is critical. Launch and Drive Success
  4. 4. 1Startsmall 2Buildrealvalue 3Getexecsonboard 4Useadoptioncampaigns YOU SHOULD… It’s important to plan and work through these things before you start (if possible). Office365Campaigns.com - 70+ pages of adoption guidance/advice!
  5. 5. @RHARBRIDGE OPEN / OPTIMISTIC LEADERS ARE MORE SOCIAL… This makes sense. Being open and sharing means you believe in others delivering more value back to you than it took to share in the first place.
  6. 6. THE VALUE OF SOCIAL… Social is about unlocking conversations & providing more context
  7. 7. @RHARBRIDGE Sometimes the most value social can provide is visibility and connection… TRY NARRATING YOUR WORK…
  8. 8. @RHARBRIDGE THE POWER OF A VERIFIED COMMUNITY… Verified communities have scorecards that they are mapped and graded on. Not just to differentiate. To improve clarity of purpose, leader engagement, community management, diversity of participation and business value realization.
  9. 9. @RHARBRIDGE LEGITIMATE REASONS FOR CONCERNS… There are some legitimate concerns around social, but they can be mitigated. Concern Mitigating Solution Corporate Embarrassment The most common reason for corporate embarrassment is lack of training on management and executive teams (or their supporting staff). It’s important for the leader who creates a blog for example to also impose ‘approval’ on blog comments. These simple measures must not only be put into effect but they also must be understood and the users must understand how to use these features effectively. Loss Of Intellectual Property & Trade Secrets This is often dealt with by appending or amending existing intellectual property policies within employee manuals or employee agreements. The Intranet or any social technology should not be exempt from acceptable technology use practices and ethical/respectful employee behavior. Another Potential Distraction It is important for management to support the platform but also to clearly explain why/when it should be used. Setting the expectation that this is a work technology (like email, or their web browser) is often the only effort necessary. To help make employee use more effective it can be extremely useful to provide training, guidance, and examples for how to use the technology in a work setting. Often using stories to illustrate this can go a long way (especially if they are based on the corporate culture, a real use of the tool, and particular to the business). Another Entry Point for Viruses/Other Attacks This is immediately mitigated by deploying or implementing an enterprise ready social technology. Many have constraints imposed to stop people from adding script as an example to status updates, discussion boards, tags, or embedded within other social content. Employee Harassment This is often dealt with by appending or amending existing sexual harassment policies within employee manuals or employee agreements. The Intranet or any social technology should not be exempt from acceptable technology use practices and ethical/respectful employee behavior.
  10. 10. @RHARBRIDGE NO ANONYMITY IN THE ENTERPRISE… There is no such thing as anonymous in enterprise social.
