The Role of Social Collaboration in Knowledge & Document Management

The Role of Social Collaboration in Knowledge & Document Management | Crowdsourcing101 | Scoop.it

"Social business is a real buzzword, but what does it mean, and will it impact your business or organization? In organizations there is often confusion between terms such as Knowledge Management, Document Management, Social networking or communications (Lync, Yammer etc) and more recently Social Business or Social Collaboration."


Via Brad Abbott
Kelli Gizzi's insight:

Welcome to my world:  "Using social collaboration environments effectively requires new habits and behaviours. In the early days many managers and individuals will believe it is a waste of time." Read on

Your Company's Largest Innovation Roadblock - Business 2 Community

Your Company's Largest Innovation Roadblock - Business 2 Community | Crowdsourcing101 | Scoop.it
Your Company's Largest Innovation Roadblock
Business 2 Community
You may think that my criticism of meetings means I'm opposed to them. Nothing could be further from the truth; ideation and innovation often come when different minds collaborate.
Kelli Gizzi's insight:

I agree - fear and middle managers not willing to back employees taking risks and trying new things.

 

The largest roadblock to innovation for companies isn’t time, money or (especially) unimaginative people. By their nature, humans are creative and productive. They simply need to be provided the opportunity to unleash that creativity and productivity in a focused, but not impeded, way. The largest roadblock to innovation for companies is fear.

Take a Step Back. Set a Realistic Goal for Your Crowdfunding Campaign. | Crowdsourcing101 | Scoop.it
You're not likely to raise a $1 million on Kickstarter. Here's how you should go about raising funds for your project.
Kelli Gizzi's insight:

Thanks @kendallamerico  for sharing your insights on the psychology of Crowdfunding from donor's perspective. Having data that shows your idea can be a success - makes so much sense.

 

"Smart crowdfunders line up 25 percent or more of their financial support beforethey launch their campaign, then have that money donated on the first day before promoting to the general public. Doing so makes the goal seem more attainable to potential donors and helps build momentum from the very beginning for a successful campaign."

The Status Quo Is Risky, Too

The Status Quo Is Risky, Too | Crowdsourcing101 | Scoop.it
Are you ever frustrated by teammates who cling to the past while you try to introduce novel ideas or new strategies? If your ideas are met with choruses of “that will never work,” “we can’t take that risk,” “let’s just stick with the plan,” your teammates are likely falling prey to a common decision making bias that former Rotman dean Roger Martin refers to as Underestimating the Risk of the Status Quo. If your team’s strategy can be summed up by the English wartime slogan “Keep Calm and Carry On,” you need some new approaches to tackle their resistance.

This hits home! It is really it really helps when people tie the "why to change" with the real market transitions that your company might miss if you don't start transforming --- and get them out of turf protection mode. Great article and timely!!
