Charlene and I recently published a report that documented the 6 Stages of Social Business Transformation. In the process, we discovered the most common mistakes and successes businesses experienced along their journey. What was most surprising however, not really, was the cavernous disconnect between social media strategy and overall business objectives.
- Only 34% of businesses feel that their social strategy is connected to business outcomes.
- Just 28% of companies we studied feel that they have a holistic approach to social media, where lines of business and business functions work together under a common vision.
- Only half said that top executives were “informed, engaged and aligned with their companies’ social strategy.”
The report was written to help strategists bridge the gap by understanding where they are, where they want to be, and how to get there efficiently. Charlene and I also noticed that the most elite companies among those we studied shared seven success factors in their social business strategy. Rather than publish a follow up report, we experimented with an ebook format. The result is a 100 page resource guide that will help you expedite and enhance your path to transformation....

- What - Fiber to the Home (FTTH) represents a big step from current copper-based access technologies, not only in terms of available bandwidth, but also because it represents a golden opportunity to move from service-dedicated networks to open, multilayer networks where all services will be delivered over one access network. In the open network business model, competing service providers (SP) get end-user access through a single network, in an free market environment. The end users can choose their ICT services (TV, Internet, Video-on-Demand, telephony, home surveillance, cloud services, e-health, etc...) from their favourite SP. - Why - This allows to break the natural monopoly of wired networks, by providing competition at service level. An open FTTH network is an infrastructure for the market AND for society. Competition means increased freedom of choice for the end users, service innovation, increased market efficiencyShared infrastructure means reduced environmental impactan improved business case for FTTH deployment and operation
Let's examine some of the pros and cons of the Steve Jobs' school of project management. You can decide which side of the line you would have been on if you had come across Steve Jobs in the early years of Apple.
If you want to know the future of technology and its impact on society study how younger generations interact with one another today. With the sting of a face palm, you’ll experience a sheer rush of humility as you realize that everything you thought you knew about tech is simply nascent compared to the sophistication of digital natives. No matter how connected you are or how many followers or friends you have online, there’s a sense of artistry mashed together with counter intuitive behavior that just works.
My advice to you is to study it.right.now. Don’t try to make sense oft it? Don’t question it. Don’t try to make it fit into your world. Simply try to understand it. Doing so opens the door to meaningful insights. And, this allows you to make decisions about the future without letting your predispositions or assumptions lead you in fallacious directions.
