Social business adoption in the workplace

Social business adoption in the workplace | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Motivating people to adopt social technology in the workplace isn't always easy. Even highly resourced efforts can take years before true adoption takes place and the promised value has been unlocked. We need to dispense with dreams of effortless collaboration and fabulous emergent effects, and instead focus on understanding the needs of our ecosystem, so that we can design strategic use cases that catalyze value through better, social ways of working.

 

The path to social business maturity often involves many experiments, false starts, reluctant users and sometimes even outright rejection. If you can accept these likelihoods, embrace the apparent failures and continually renew your approach then your efforts will, in time, be rewarded. There are three aspects of social business strategy that, in my experience, are essential for success.

Stephen Dale's insight:

I've scooped this because I generally like most of what Dion Hinchcliffe has to say, and there is quite a useful diagram in the piece. But I wonder if maybe we (or if not 'we', them me) are getting saturated with pieces about "good practice"  for "Social Business" adoption, with the same messages being stated but in slightly different ways. It all starts to look a bit like motherhood and apple pie.

 

For exampe: "If you do not attract the buy-in and support of leaders early on they are unlikely to adopt social working practices and lead the rest of the organisation by example." Really?!

Social Media versus Knowledge Management

Social Media versus Knowledge Management | The Social Web | Scoop.it

On the surface, social media and knowledge management (KM) seem very similar. Both involve people using technology to access information. Both require individuals to create information intended for sharing. Both profess to support collaboration.

But there’s a big difference.

 

Knowledge management is what company management tells me I need to know, based on what they think is important.


Social media is how my peers show me what they think is important, based on their experience and in a way that I can judge for myself.

Stephen Dale's insight:

An interesting yet somewhat misconstrued argument about the difference between SM and KM. Juts to add fule to the fire, here's my take on the difference:

 

SM is a boundless, organic, protean, creative and energetic force; KM is a bounded, process -driven, structured discipline. 

 

They are different, but complementary, joined only at the point of "Personal Knowledge Management" (PKM)
