A majority of companies who have invested in an Enterprise Social Network are struggling to get their people to use it as intended and to adopt new ways of working, says Linus Larsson, partner at Blue Consulting Group.
Adopting an Enterprise Social Network is not just a matter of finding the best technical solution; it is primarily a matter of creating and implementing a crisp collaboration strategy and concurrently driving and releasing change, says Per Jomer, partner at Blue Consulting Group.
The motion of work today has to a large extent become a motion of information. Most of the work-to-be-done either flows through the corporate information systems byte by byte or is kept out of reach for the people in need of just that vital piece of information. Hence, we must improve the ways information and knowledge are created, used, distributed and consumed. This untapped productivity source has a huge impact on most companies' earnings and most public organisations' yield, purpose, and in the end, the citizens' perceived value of the paid taxes.
Solutions for increased enterprise collaborations supported by Enterprise Social Network have been around for some time now and many organisations use them today. Nevertheless, the majority of senior executives who participated in the survey do not think knowledge and information sharing, communication and collaboration is functioning satisfactorily. There is still a long way to go before Enterprise Social Networks become the social "backbone" by forming a cross-organisational relationship layer in order to facilitate information sharing and collaboration.
Approximately 50% of the research participants are in a Managing Director/President/CEO position and the remaining 50% are either in a position as Head of a Business Unit/Area or Head of a Business Support Function, i.e. Sales, Strategy, Production, Human Resources, Finance, IT, etc.
