Generations, Social and Enterprise: adopt vs adapt

Martijn Linssen

and Social are about humans, people, change management, radical organisation change, and, in the end, about tools And, on the field of Integration, the theme of adopt versus adapt has always played the most significant role in my working life.

Social Learning at TELUS by Dan Pontefract

Luis Suarez

In it, Dan shares how they keep making use of social tools like blogs, wikis, microblogging, etc. This is, in my opinion, a critical point regarding the adoption of social tools within the enterprise, mainly from the perspective of setting up the right expectations and encouraging those who would want to make use of the tools to use them, while allowing the remaining ones adjust accordingly and figure out by themselves whether they would need to jump in as well or not.

Business or Pleasure? - why not both: On the Return On R&D

Martijn Linssen

why not both Home About Contact Saturday, 23 October 2010 On the Return On R&D After my last post , where I showed Apple to be the least innovative company around, some words were exchanged on that conclusion (.). Rephrasing that: Apple is just a little more innovative than HP, but SAP and Oracle are 5 times as innovative. Lets just define R&D as the attempt to innovate, Spend as the actual "attempt enhancer", and Innovation as the outcome.

What's important is the absolute $ spend, the breadth of product range on which its spent, and how much results in free-on-upgrade enhancements vs new products. A $10m software company can spend 20%, 50% on R&D but its not going to move its product forward as fast as a company 10, 100 times as big. However, as you point out, it is important to consider how a software company's R&D spend is "spread across more products and more verticals."

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

In the early days Twitter was called a “microblogging” platform. Dave created RSS — Really Simple Syndication — as we know it today , and got The New York Times and other publications (including many papers and nearly all Web publishers) to adopt it as well.
