FAQ 122

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources AND Management’s Hands

Luis Suarez

A few weeks ago I put together the attached article for CMSWire where I tried to reflect on what I feel is the number #1 challenge for today’s corporations in terms of embracing a much more open, transparent, knowledge sharing culture through the emergence of social technologies behind the firewall. And that changes the entire game, because when both technology and business processes are no longer a barrier, there is still a bigger hurdle: incentives.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

Then I saw Bill Ives Is Blogging Inside the Firewall an Oxymoron? where he talks about some of the issues with blogs within the enterprise and ends with: Wikis seem to have less baggage attached to them and that might partially (and only partially) explain their recent rise in use within the enterprise. The first uses of Wikis is as an easier content management system that houses reference material. Not really - see Use of Wikis as Compared to Other Tools.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change.

Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall ).

Models for Learning Questions

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

Clearly this is a different use of PLE's than those outside the firewall, for free rangers, and for learning from everything of personal interest. Second - while I would expect Stephen to argue about the issue of control (see below for why corporations likely will want access, ownership, control), I'm surprised to see him argue that the same tools provide by the corporation or access completely independent of the corporation changes it from a PLE to not being a PLE.

Words of Wisdom*

Clark Quinn

Our IT group changed the infrastructure a year ago, to *open source* (I don’t know what they were thinking), but fortunately my vendor says that they’d be happy to help change the installation to work with the new services architecture.
