Making Meaning in the Organization

If you know our site, you know our mantra is "ideas are everywhere". With this in mind, making meaning constantly evolves. We use our own tools to connect, engage, and share ideas and information.  So everybody - meaning scales - is tied into the concentric circles (individual, team, group, department, division, organization, and outside)  of emergent thinking to make meaning. Through this connectedness of meaning the organization performs better and leaves little doubt about what needs to be done.

What Makes an Online Community Tick?

What makes an online community work? We know software is only part of the solution. But, with any social software application, you need to understand: Collaboration - Participation - Information Flows, how people get work done, and relationships. The application must balance form and function - user experience - to be effective. Those items are critically important to implementing a successful community. We initially learned about them from working in open source software (OSS) communities as we implement social applications for customers.
