What “2.0” is all about

I really like this simple chart by Jessica Hagy from Indexed.

Enterprise 2.0 Team Dynamics

August 12, 2010

Companies often try to deploy collaborative solutions that are disconnected from their business, and face serious adoption challenges as employees struggle to see their relevance and value. These solutions eventually fade away while the stakeholders wait for the cargo to arrive (see “cargo cult“) and users find other ways to communicate.

The transformational power of an Enterprise 2.0 initiative lies in fostering and/or amplifying a real collaborative culture using tools that over time will integrate with the organization’s core systems, data stores and business processes. This requires strong sponsorship, a cross-functional team and focus on culture and process change. The diagram below illustrates three key layers to deploy and sustain a collaborative platform.

Enablers provide the infrastructure and change management support that underpins the Enterprise 2.0 (or Intranet 2.0) initiative. They continuously adapt the infrastructure and remove obstacles to maintain the right conditions for success.

Stewards are the content catalysts that make sure the solution is always in motion. They break the initial inertia and work with enablers to keep momentum. They play a key role in sustaining and curating the platform. Stewards know how to navigate the waters to maximize the wind in their sail… and when there is no wind, they are the motor that keeps the sailboat moving.

Users represent the broadest layer and are ultimately what sustains everything else (no more sailing analogies?). Individuals play different roles at different times as their level of engagement and collaboration needs change over time.

I’d love to hear your feedback.

Vacation appreciation

With adhoc vacations days, appreciation for freedom stays high. This is why I love taking vacation days sporadically… or work sporadically during my vacation.

Nice talk on media, culture, web 2.0, youtube and a brief history of “whatever”… and “meh“.


Technology needs to be implemented right

He was probably better of without the goggles - Technology needs to be implemented right!Excerpt from an Accenture presentation on Cloud Computing.

Interesting use of a picture to get the point across. The picture is actually from Sierra Leone’s swimmer Gibrilla Bamba, who had his goggles fall off during the men’s 50 meter breaststroke. See BBC news (picture 7) or more here.


Beach Mall Mural?

August 9, 2009

It would be very nice if the Beach Mall facade could a have a mural similar to the other two we have in the beach. We’ll send a note to the Beaches BIA with the suggestion.
