Our Implementation • We did control the information architecture • We did use specific business use cases Our Adoption • 20% active contributors, 50% comment and like, 30% read only • Now an essential part of our organization • Rubber hits the road when habits are formed to visit tibbr like email or voicemail and staff turn off email notifications The email problem • Impossible to sort the important from not important • Impossible to sort the urgent from the not urgent • Unable to unsubscribe from the “reply all” hell • Email is growing exponentially • Productivity falling as a result of more email • Email is a poor medium to host a conversation • Email is a push mechanism Email post tibbr • Evidenced by less email • Conversations are better in social • Staff can control how information comes to them • Can change digest for less important subjects to less frequent • Can follow important subjects • Conversations are structured by subject and conversations grow over time stay in that structure Executive Decision Making Problem • The more executives we have the harder it is to get them in the same room to discuss issues and make decisions • No formal way to record the outcome in a way that can be passed to staff for implementation. Executive Decision Making Post • Quicker with a better outcome • Poll feature allows us to pose the question • Conversations about the matter are welcomed • Executive can elaborate on their simple poll response if they feel the need • Organising events becomes much easier Building Engagement • This sort of thing would do the rounds via email, usually to a group email list that you could not unsubscribe from. • Supportive of our culture • Transparent and engaging Presentation Outline
Knowledge Sharing Problem • Had no way for communities of practice to have conversations about IP development • Had no way for communities to come together other than through email • No way for communities to form • Email relies on sender knowing who should be in the address block, which means you either miss the opportunity to have the right people contribute. • Or the sender sends the request for knowledge to a mailing list or worse email@example.com • Replies to knowledge requests do not persist • Not accessible by others • 80% of knowledge is Tacit. It is in the heads of our people and is never codified or captured as formal artefacts. Knowledge Sharing Post tibbr • Supports access to Tacit knowledge • Helps organise information into subjects • Consultants follow the subjects they are interested in • Does not rely on someone knowing to talk to • More productive workforce What’s Next • Following business events in our line of business systems • Contract about to exceed its $$ • Birthday of a staff member • Invoice issued to a client • Receivables now 90 days for an invoice Too many mailing lists • Too many lists • No idea who is on them • Staff did not know how to subscribe/unsubscribe to them • “Reply All” still applied • Too much email noise with no control over how to receive messages from mailing lists • Overhead for the support team in keeping the lists up-to- dateCT team in keeping the lists up to date Mailing Lists post tibbr • Single list for important announcements firstname.lastname@example.org • External facing email aliases which go into structured systems The CRM Problem • No CRM • I did not think people would use it even if we had one • Wanted to see if we could use tibbr to capture intelligence about our clients The CRM Solution • We still don’t have a formal CRM • We use our practice system for structured data • Tibbr has become the place where client care, client intelligence and client needs are posted and discussed. • Simple to do • Highly accessible • Low barriers to adoption Presentation Outline
