Pathways to Success: Enterprise Social Networks – 6th August, 2014
Do you want to implement or relaunch an enterprise social network (ESN) or social intranet in your workplace?
Attend this workshop with the Ripple Effect Group and learn about our leading practices for enterprise social networks (like Yammer) and social intranets.
We will provide the foundations to help you successfully launch an enterprise social network in your business or organisation, including:
What is the point of your Enterprise Social Network? An enterprise social network (ESN) is an internal software platform, such as Yammer, that has the potential to streamline communication among co-workers. But how is “empowerment” different from just “better communication”? Or how can you use an ESN to support purposeful collaboration and not just social chatter? We will explore the value proposition of different use cases for ESNs, so you can argue the business case with confidence.
Is your business or organisation ready for an Enterprise Social Network? Introducing an ESN or Yammer into your business or organisation does not just introduce a new communication channel. An ESN represents a whole new way of managing and working. We will explore the different business, management and employee challenges and opportunities you should consider to determine if your organisation is ready to implement an ESN with strategic purpose.
How should you plan your Enterprise Social Network project? One of the myths about successful ESN projects is the idea of the viral approach to implementation. While a viral strategy has worked in some businesses, it can be a recipe for disaster in others. Simply inviting people to use your enterprise social network and expecting them to start using it is unlikely to be enough. We will explore different deployment models and critical success factors you should consider in your planning.
While this is a vendor-neutral workshop, every organisation attending the workshop is welcome to book a complimentary ESN technology briefing with our consulting team (conditions apply).
