  • “Here at Optimice we believe that the work that really matters is inherently social, and that connectedness is the true differentiator. We aren’t the only ones believing this, and both Google and Yahoo have in public statements made it clear that the workplace plays a critical role in enabling connectivity. The link between workplace, space and connectedness is therefore a matter for serious consideration.”

  • “La recente indagine Istat Noi-Italia ha confermato che l’arretratezza sull’utilizzo del digitale in Italia è da considerarsi un fenomeno niente affatto temporaneo, ma ormai patologico, che richiede, per ottenere una inversione di tendenza efficace, un intervento su più piani e aree, un vero e proprio sistema di interventi che sia in grado di affrontare le molteplici cause che sono alla base.”

  • “For the purpose of having one single, all-embracing definition, I prefer to use the following:

    Collaboration is when individuals or groups work together, combining their strengths and negating weaknesses to accomplish a set of goals.

    I think the important point about this definition is that the outcomes are more likely to be amplified when working together as opposed to individually.”

  • “How we collaborate has profound implications for how we live and work. The author and New York University professor explains how social media has upended traditional norms.”

  • “Disruption can be seen as a force for good or evil. On the one hand the business world celebrates the disruptive effects new social business technologies are having on the status quo — in everything from marketing and customer service to recruitment and sales. On the other, when it comes to internal collaboration and communication, social business software (SBS) is seen as disruptive in that other sense of the word — a distraction from the job at hand.”

  • “Turning an organization into a social business — one that knows how to use new forms of collaboration and communication via social media — is a challenge for any operation, but it’s especially challenging for multinational, highly regulated companies.

    Boston-based financial services company State Street deals with this double whammy every day. A company founded in 1792 — yes, you read that right — and traded on the New York Stock Exchange, State Street has approximately 29,000 employees and offices in 29 countries — so it is subject to 29 different sets of regulations, not to mention international law. Which makes managing its online activities… interesting.”

  • “Coming out of the recession, there’s been soaring demand to “do business differently” by empowering workers with technologies that allow them to collaborate while building their knowledge through real-time access to expert information.”

  • “I like to frame personal knowledge management as a combination of seeking knowledge, making sense of it, and sharing it with others. This simple model has worked well in explaining the main concepts of PKM and helping others to individually construct a set of processes to make sense of the world and work more effectively. Two key factors are sense-making and sharing, which I have shown on the image below.”

    • The key takeaway is that a substantial portion of people decides whether or not to cooperate based on environmental conditions.
  • “The growth and evolution of Enterprise 2.0 or Social Business has at its foundation the creation of a collaborative culture that will drive the way we work, what we create, and how we run our businesses. Is there a magic formula or silver bullet for creating a collaborative culture? The obvious answer is “NO”, but there are many best practices and lessons learned over the past few years from a wide spectrum of companies leading the charge in how to do collaboration right.”

  • “If you are buying, implementing, using, or even contemplating enterprise social software, somewhere along the way the topic of organizational culture is going to come up. One reason is that when you implement social technologies, like it or not it brings to light your organization’s culture (good, bad, and ugly).”
