WHO AM I TO BE TALKING ABOUT THE ROLE OF LYNC, STRATEGY, & INTRANETS? ABOUT ME & NLC
WHY NLC’S DEFINITION OF “INTRANET” IS MORE THAN SHAREPOINT?

3 THINGS I KNOW ABOUT NLC’S WORLD TODAY AND TOMORROW COMPLEXITY
3 THINGS I KNOW ABOUT NLC’S WORLD TODAY AND TOMORROW CULTURE
BACKGROUND ON NLC AND ENVIRONMENTAL AND SYSTEMIC CHALLENGES WE TRYING TO SOLVE
LETS LOOK AT TWO VERY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES OF OUR DIGITAL WORLD ONE.

WHAT WE HAVE IS A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE
THE POTENTIAL OF TECHNOLOGY VS. THE ACTUAL USER NEEDS & ABILITIES CHALLENGE
WE WERE KEENLY AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL BENFITS OF INTEGRATED COMMUNICATIONS & ENHANCED CONNECTIONS
BUT I WAS ALSO KEENLY AWARE THAT WE NEEDED TO SOLVE ONE MAJOR AND GROWING PROBLEM TEAM COMMUNICATION
I BEGAN ASKING THE QUESTION WE ASK OUR CLIENTS WHEN WORKING FOR THEM QUESTIONS
1. WHAT’S THE BUSINESS PROBLEM ARE WE TRYING TO SOLVE? 2. IT IS REALLY “SOLVABLE”? 3. HAVE WE TRIED BEFORE TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WITH TECHNOLOGY? 4. WHAT ARE WE MEASURING TO KNOW FOR SURE? 5. DO WE HAVE A PLAN ON HOW TO GO FROM HERE TO THERE? 6. PERFECT, TIMELINE, COST – PICK ONE

KEY LEARNINGS 1. BE PREPARED TO BE UNPOPULAR AND RUTHLESS IN YOUR RESOLVE TO “SOLVE A PROBLEM”, NOT “ALL PROBLEMS” 2. DON’T INVENT PROBLEMS – FOCUS ON THE BIG ONES 3. ALMOST EQUAL EFFORT NEEDS TO BE APPLIED TO ENSURING EFFECTIVENESS AND ROI AS TO DEVELOPMENT.
