This paper and the research behind it is based on an on-line survey conducted between November 2009 and January 2010, targeting MNCs and international organizations. Given the size of the panel (50 set of answers kept), this report is food for thought rather than proven statistical analysis. Financial and technical information was not our focus. Our intent was to study change execution. Respondents were from the following organizations: Air Liquide, Alcatel Lucent, Alstom, Amadeus, AT&T, Bouygues, Caterpillar, Cisco, Deloitte, DuPont, Ericsson, France Telecom – Orange, GDF Suez, IBM, Kimberly-Clark, KPN, MAN, Mars, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, French Ministère de la Défense, Parker Hannifin, Relais & Chateaux, Royal Bank of Scotland, Sapient, Société Générale, Sogeti, Sony, Sopra, Swift, Thales, Tokyo Electron, Ubisoft, United Technologies, Valeo. Respondents answered in their own names rather than representing the official position of their employers; their answers were made anonymous in the report. The report covers applications scope, corporate ...

Dear all, this is the SECOND CALL for the survey. The survey is dedicated to participants from organizations with over 5000 employees, involved or closely interested in the transformation toward Enterprise 2.0. Their organization can be at any stage of the transformation. The survey FOCUSES on CHANGE management (this is not a technical survey). SO FAR we have 29 RESPONDENTS, all from Fortune 500 companies, from high tech, manufacturing, consulting, governments; 21% work in IT, 14% HR, and the rest is spread across different areas; 20% are execs/board members, 47% managers, 33% professionals. Already some interesting findings on best practices and change restraints to address – for example, a trend that seems to show up is that employees are positive about the organization’s benefits, neutral about their personal benefits, and seeking more information on how to personally participate to the Enterprise 2.0 transformation. The research conclusions will definitely ...

Presence, the next life changer – on Boostzone Institute’s blog

I have been a Boostzone Institute member since 18 months when I was proposed to become part of the Fellows. The Boostzone Institute is a research community, aiming at corporate issues, and recently revamped its organization to focus more on applied research – mostly dedicated to understand the human factor rather than only the technology. Its motto is “Strategic Impact Through Connected People”. I accepted to contribute, as it is consistent with my practice and Early Strategies’ objectives, and participating in such a community is constructive; I think we need to pay a different attention to the change underway - too often, the spot light is on the technology or the business model (or both), to the detriment of the effect on people, groups or organizations. My first post on the Boostzone Institute blog is titled “Presence, the next life changer”. It aims at depicting the impact and ...

Demonstrating the ROI of Enterprise 2.0 is like squaring the circle. Since you’re presenting to decision-makers who live in a 1.0 world, you need to build the numbers in that (old) frame, and concepts such as increasing innovation power, being more adaptable to the market – not to say ‘in synch’ -, developing entrepreneurship spirit, and becoming a Learning Organization don’t easily translate into 1.0 figures. So, although we’re convinced that the biggest benefit are in transforming the organization, we still look for some easy figures to serve as ice breakers, and let us open the discussion. Here are two of the noticeable down-to-earth parameters recently discovered. The first one was unveiled this spring by the University of Melbourne. Dr Brent Cocker, from the Department of Management and Marketing, has worked out a concept of ‘Workplace Internet Leisure Browsing’ that basically says: the more your employees surf on the Internet, ...

Innovation nowadays: a Cost or an Agility challenge?

Monday, April 20, 2009 – 6:16 pm

Loading ... Loading ...

Business Week just released last week it’s 2009 Most innovative companies list, with the unavoidable trendy question “Is Innovation Too Costly in Hard Times ?”. Is it the right thing to ask? When a company innovates, or when it adopts innovation, it develops its agility and ability to adapt the market. Hence, it grows its odds to sustain the business and get out of the recession in better shape than if it just focuses on cutting costs. There’s more clue in Fortune Europe last week’s interview of Carole Browner, Obama’s climate crusader. She says major companies tell her, regarding pushing a comprehensive energy package (carbon law and innovation pressure): “Please, now is exactly the time. Don’t wait until we are halfway or two-third the way through recovery.” Crisis does not prevent the market to change, it accelerates it. Hence companies have to make sure they think ahead of the market, innovate ...

Although this is and extra-professional and volunteer work, I'm happy to present my latest publication on this blog: it's about women's professional networking and women's networks. We started with a survey, "How do women network?" in March, and ended up with a white paper and a book. The objective was to understand women's professional behaviors and to decrypt the conducts (quantitative, best practices, dos and don'ts...) both in person and online. For those of you interested in virtual networks, I gathered genders estimates in this table, in the book p32: a few of the best known online social networks (Compiled in Sept. 08. Sources: Cybernetnews, NYTimes, Nielsen, LinkedIn, Rapleaf, myspacemoneymagnet, mashable, plaxo, findarticles, secondelife, red herring, spoke, viadeo, Xing, Adconion). [TABLE=4] Both the "How do women network?" survey results and the book are available in French : "Comment réseautent les femmes?" and "Réseaux - le nouveau fil d'Ariane". Both books can ...

The trends white paper worked for AT&T on the "Business impacts of social networking" is just out to their customers. In its final version, after speaking with a bunch of strategic customers who are part from the AT&T EMEA advisory council of customers, we added this 10th prediction: Prediction 10: Social networking may allow increased revenues I guess we were so focused on the huge changes social networking is bringing to the businesses that we obviously missed this very simplistic view. That said, it's well placed in the 10th rank ! Find the paper here, on AT&T Networking Exchange.
