Corporate social networks

With business social networking software - managers and employees now have a system for connecting informal interactions and discovering new information flows.

So, stop reading about social applications and collaboration tools. Unleash your imagination and start experimenting. The real power of social software can only be appreciated with hands-on experience. Consider a pilot project.

Customer Defection - Disengaged Workforce, Employees - Clueless Management

I've strung together three posts that sum the dysfunctions of many organizations. They cover unhappy customers, employees and managers. What I don't get is the fact that many of these problems can be fixed. Dave Pollard offers several great ideas, so be sure to read his post.

Complexity Theory Meets Spiderman

"Complexity theory is new and largely untested in this area but there are some fascinating and powerful techniques (open space, tipping points, narrative and storytelling, probe/sense/respond, conversations, appreciative inquiry, empowered autopoiesis, collaboration, mindmapping and concept mapping, passion bounded by responsibility, the gift/generosity/support economy, pattern recognition, improv, the wisdom of crowds and the four practices, that seem well-suited to support a complex adaptive system '

Taking action with their dollars.

I get really excited about all the new ideas I come across in the blogosphere but most of the people I know don't even know what a blog is. I usually give my 30 sec pitch and that's that. But if you take a look at what's happening with mainstream media (Donata Communications) and here (buzz machine) you get a clear picture of why self-publishing, blogging is taking off. What's more, social software will have a greater impact on society than TV.

Disruptive Podcasting!

One of the things I love about blogging/reading blogs is that I can read one person’s thoughts on a subject and it leads me to another idea.  I love linking one idea to the next and creating new paths of thought.  For example, today I was reading Seth’s Blog about podcasting:  Seth,  “First, you can't browse a podcast. Problem two is that listening is a real time commitment. "... you can put up a blog post in two minutes, but it takes an hour to make a podcast."

The Bigger Picture for Enterprise Blogs

All this noise about blogging in PR/marketing is missing the bigger picture - blogging internally. Our grandparents had Laurel and Hardy, Gapingvoid, Hugh - "Blog bashing doesn't phase me too much- I actually find it rather entertaining. What can I say? It's rather fun watching people being wrong, again and again, for the same "I have a dumb ass suit & tie job in a big company ergo I must be terribly important" reasons."
