The 4 main Elements of Enterprise 2.0

The 4 main Elements of Enterprise 2.0 | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Enterprise 2.0 enables many opportunities for companies and organizations. Relevant information can be quickly and globally distributed to all employees. Information, knowledge and networking take place on a single platform which all employees have access to. Employees, partners and customers can work together; start networking and exchange ideas within and outside the company. Modern structures are highly motivating for employees; it can boost creativity and innovation and transform the whole enterprise into a more agile one.

 

In order to unleash the potential of Enterprise 2.0 for companies and organizations, a brief look at the four main elements of Enterprise 2.0 is worth: Communication, information, networking and collaboration.

 

COMMUNICATION

 

Communication is essential for success. If employees generate ideas, thoughts and opinions, companies can gain moods and opinions very fast. Enterprise 2.0 services with comment functions require an open communication culture. The so called “social pressure” sets the necessary framework for an internal corporate network. Applications for file sharing, and personal profiles with contact details enriches the corporate communication options

enormously.

 

INFORMATION

 

More information thanks to networks. The intuitive design of Enterprise 2.0 services enables different networks in any company and organization. These networks are made for different departments, groups or teams. Networks are also evolving for coworking spaces or seminar groups in schools, colleges and universities. Thus, it´s automatically controlled who gets which information. By #topics such information can be automatically clustered to an ever growing knowledge base.

 

NETWORKING

 

Based on the principles of social networks, Enterprise 2.0 provides the ability to maintain personal profiles, individual networks and operate smaller networks for special or temporary topics or team work. The social web is made for employees who share expertise, information and opinions with colleagues – as well as with customers and partners in external networks. Employees and their know-how can be searched and found in an innovative way like traditional hierarchical structures would not do so.

 

COLLABORATION

 

Through proactive collaboration in the Enterprise 2.0, collaboration with maximum freedom across departments, locations and companies is possible. Internal corporate networks and an expert search engage people to work together, share knowledge and experiences. Basis for planning and implementing appropriate tools and processes is the question, whether a company or organization wants to remain competitive in the future.

Does the secret to social impact measurement lie in algorithmic data?

Does the secret to social impact measurement lie in algorithmic data? | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it

The principles used to predict someone's credit score or music taste can be used to predict social outcomes, according to a data expert speaking at the Skoll World Forum in Oxford.

 

In a sector increasingly being driven towards measuring its outcomes, Jason Saul's product, created with the assistance of a musicologist at Pandora, uses former learning on social projects to assess how likely it is that social programmes will have desired results.

 

The Impact Genome Project, expected to be available at the end of the year, has a database of 78,000 "outcome data points" and will analyse the result of what would happen when these points are put together in different combinations.

Limits of Social Learning | Social Physics

Most of our learning takes place implicitly, by observing other people. This is especially true for social and cultural norms – things that are based on collective approval, rather than empirical facts. If you want to find out which restaurant to eat at, or what kind of joke is socially acceptable, your friends and family are a good source of information.  When you poll your circle about a question, bad quality answers filter out and approved answers rise to the top.

 

But when it comes to solving complex problems, it seems social networking has its limits, as our new experiment shows. In our experiments, we equally divided 100 volunteers into five social networks. Then we asked them questions that did not have obvious intuitive answers (in fact, the intuitive answer was wrong). For example, if I tell you that a bat and a ball cost $1.10 together, and the bat costs $1 more than the ball, how much does the ball cost? The answer that will jump at you is 10 cents, but the correct answer is 5 cents (think about it).

The report,  Just In Time: Beyond-the-Hype Potential of E-Learning, covers how identifies the "seismic and structural shifts" in our society and work place that are demanding that organizations and reinvent themselves and re-imagine their futures. It can be summed in a tagline: "It's not what you know, but how you learn." The report discusses the implications of “just-in-time learning”—being able to access information easily and inexpensively at the precise moment of relevance. What's most interesting to me is how these trends and technological developments in e-learning will impact sectors beyond education, particularly how it will change nonprofits, both individuals, inside the workplace, and networks of organizations working together to solve social change issues...

"Native Americans not only have a memory of the last Cascadia earthquake 311 years ago, they have a memory of the explosion of Mount Mazama about 7,600 years ago. We, on the other hand, can't remember much that happened before Twitter and Facebook."
