At last the document accompanying the visual on evolution of collaborative spaces is live. You can find it here just click here You might notice while navigating around that this and further research will be posted under the “Research” header on this site. Keep an eye out for good things to come! Hint, next up, a follow up on Co-Authoring Strategies.
This visualisation is part of an article on collaborative spaces. For several days in Malmö, Sweden, faculty and doctoral students from Fielding Graduate University, members and leaders from Media Evolution and various guests that represented different parts of the greater community gathered to discuss collaborative spaces. We looked at Malmö as a city, Media Evolution as a community and Fielding as an institution. I am posting the visual with intent to open for discussion and make room for further evolution in this case and others. After the launch of the B Team yesterday, I was inspired to share this add to the conversation. The full article on collaborative spaces will be coming shortly. In the meantime, please feel free to comment, share and reflect. I might even suggest, take time for a fika and reflect with others who imagine the change.
I just started two waves on Google Wave about “Social Business Strategy” and “Collaborative Culture”. As the invites to the Google Wave beta only went out today, we will see if this wave grows. So far, no response and only four of my contacts are on there, but they are 10 time zones away. So, I invite you to join the wave if you are there and let me know who else is out there. I like the concept, but sure is hard to test when limited the invited test group.
Here’s the waves…
SOCIAL BUSINESS STRATEGY: Let’s define it together.
Applying social technologies to add value to your organisation requires cultural shifts for implementation to succeed. Leadership needs to be 100% committed and engaged in the process for it to succeed. Trust is critical. Monitoring and Measuring is important to get commited engagement and verify results for ROI both in time and money. The technologies are the tools, the people are what make social business strategy effective.
COLLABORATIVE CULTURE Currently working with the challenges in adapting hierarchical corporate cultures to one that is more collaborative to prepare for implementing social business strategy. Would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on this topic.
