Intrinsic motivation is obvious to anyone who knows the saying “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink” In other words, you can unleash your business champions and push all the promotion you like, but if the individuals who comprise your target audience lack a collaborative attitude, they won’t use Yammer. Nonetheless, some sort of management of the forum is considered important in driving its use. In the meantime, bear in mind that social forums grow organically.

That forum is still up and running. Since that time, I have attempted to introduce the discussion forum tool to two other work groups within the bank but I have not been very successful.
