Benefits of Internal Transparency Organizational benefits: I understand what you’re working on. I see the type/quality of work you do I get some insight into how you think and how you work. I can follow your best practices and knowledge of company processes and resources. I can add/comment/question/direct your work I’m aware when we are working on similar issues or when problems arise. You get the same from me. Personal benefits: We are engaged, develop our sense of teamwork and mission. Our effort is seen, appreciated and coached. Cynicism, isolation and flailing decline. Integrity is encouraged. We coach and support each other – implicitly and explicitly

Its not the wisdom of crowds – it’s the aggregated wisdom of individuals.

Social Media Tools Capture Tacit Knowledge Most knowledge in the organization is tacit It is nearly impossible to turn this tacit into explicit knowledge Social media tools collect, and make tacit knowledge retainable and findable . “ What if we simplified it by doing a transform?” “ We need to wait till the acme contract expires in Jan 09. Then we can.” “ Does anyone know who does the cost analysis?” “ Kyle in Waterloo does those. Ask him, he knows everything.”

Facebook-ish Goodness: Transparency

Blog Goodness: Value in Rough Ideas

Profiles and Workplace networking

Wiki-ish goodness: The team notebook Finding the RIGHT level of organization for your goal and team. File sharing – no more emailing around and trying to figure out what the latest version is.

THE BARRIERS Technical Cultural Historical

Adoption: People use a tool when its easier to use than not to. Adoption = Benefit + Corporate Compulsion/Ease of Use + difficulty of task And Corporate Compulsion is a relatively weak multiplier. In recent years, consumer software has leapfrogged enterprise software in usability People are loosing patience with it. Web 2.0 Social media tools set high standards of usability in the consumer world The new consumer usability and integrate-ability bar will revolutionize the enterprise software industry.

Information is status

No incentive to surface Mistakes/problems

Blame outweighs accountability

No team benefit
