As an enterprise community manager, I am often faced withvaried user questions and needs. Before I move on let me briefly explain how Jive --whichpowers our social platform--works. Moreover, from an enterprise context, finding relevantcontent at the point of need is of paramount importance. Nonetheless, enhancing userexperience by giving them more control to filter in what they need or filterout as the case maybe will lead to greater adoption of social businessplatforms.

Enterprise 2.0 Has Arrived

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

With the recent launch of InGenius by SkillSoft, I believe it’s time again to raise a pretty important question: Where do Social Learning Tools belong? My contention (as expressed in LMS and Social Learning ) is that most of the vendors are getting this wrong. Instead of looking at providing tightly coupled Social Learning Tools, they should instead be looking at how their offering can integrate or leverage Enterprise 2.0 Adoption - What's the PU?

How to Stay on Top of Training Demand? Know the Alternatives

Mindflash

Organizations of all sizes are moving so fast, that as soon as we finish learning something new about products, customers, a change in the competitive landscape, or how to use a new software system, something new comes along to replace it. However, there must be a better way, so we reach for alternatives to training, such as knowledge management, performance support, enterprise 2.0, collaboration, and/or social learning. Enterprise 2.0 : Enterprise 2.0

Individual Value Required

Tony Karrer

Aaron's main point is that enterprise 2.0 software or enterprise social software should not focus on: social networks or social software, which is focused entirely on enabling conversations Instead, Aaron points to what he calls Collaborative networks: Rather than focusing on socialization, one to one interactions and individual enrichment, businesses must be concerned with creating an information fabric within their organizations.

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

I have recently taken on enterprise community facilitation and was curious to see how people are interacting on our enterprise collaboration platform. This is especially true of communities in enterprises. At this point, I also "serendipitous-ly" stumbled upon a couple of conversations recently that touched upon lurking (this is why I love social media). Lurking and its role in communities has been on the forefront of my mind for the past few days.

Jakob Nielsen on social networks on the intranet

Clive on Learning

It has been fascinating to read the thoughts of arch rationalist Jakob Nielsen on the relatively romanticised world of enterprise 2.0. I would not have a predicted such a positive review of the progress being made by early adopters, but if Jakob is convinced then we can be comfortable that there's good evidence to back this up. technologies — unless ‘thinking about social software’ is considered progress.

Mentoring or Coaching: What’s Best for Your Company?

CLO Magazine

Most talent development programs in enterprise corporations will use mentoring to supplement their coaching initiatives. There is no perfect model or one-size-fits-all solution for every organization to adopt. Talent management software vendors can provide some tracking capability, but do not provide in-depth coaching and mentoring program workflows optimized to help guide these programs. Mentoring and coaching strategies translate to better employee engagement and retention.

Come Together

Jay Cross

Twenty years ago, colleagues at far-flung enterprises communicated by phone, mail and fax. Expertise locators connect workers to people with answers; social software connects them with friends and colleagues. Software such as Second Life allows executives — in avatar form — to give presentations to one another in virtual boardrooms. The social learning revolution has only just begun. This is not atypical when companies adopt new technologies.

CLO Magazine
