Intel has posted a report on developing an enterprise social computing strategy.

    You could even bury links in the body of the emails to provide additional resources and information. People already use their computers for things like checking email, surfing the web, and sharing the latest news on Facebook. Since that’s the case, why not design a course structure that mimics how they already use their computers? I see a lot of elearning courses and I’d say that most of them are linear and almost exclusively focused on sharing information. Because sometimes it’s all you need, or all the customer wants.

    Individually, we can take action too.  We can engage in  ongoing reflective practice , which provides us with a framework for examining our assumptions. These, too, provide a structure for reflection and evaluation and allow us to see where we should and shouldn't rest consider other alternatives.  Shafeen Charania makes an intriguing suggestion --that the best predictor of our future failure is our past successes. His premise is that when we've found a course of action that proves successful, we are more likely to become wedded to it. But there's a twist.

    Two scenarios, however, lead to payroll replacement: companies that are replacing an older on-premise system that had embedded payroll, and those simply contemplating a change of payroll providers; these seem “up for grabs,” as the saying goes.
