Qualities of leaders in successful 2.0 roll-outs 13 votesEllen Feaheny said
The applications need to not just meet the "Social" need, but also measured productivity needs. More, the collaborative input need, I think. How is this possible? Integration with existing processes and methodologies, is one. Enterprise 2.0 is not a "rip and replace" technology, or should not be, but it does hit alot of areas/applications of the functional organization. Therefore, evolve the migration with functional integrations into common platforms. Platform applications with open APIs, customizable interfaces and already built-in integration touchpoints or plugins, are best suited imho.
Fostering adoption via bottom-up and top-down strategies 20 votesEllen Feaheny said
I think it's a question of quicker adoption as well as success. When top-down not only sponsors, but also actively contributes, this communicated transparency at the top level sends loud and clear msgs to the org. Also, once some level of adoption, publicly acknowledged approval of those efforts helps. All in all, people need to feel comfortable "exposing themselves" in public platforms, knowing that their efforts are intended for collaboration w/ others' input to evolve add'l polish of content, designs, opinions, plans, innovation.
