Adaptation: The Key to Become a Socially Integrated Enterprise

David Gurteen

The strategy adopted to meet them would also be of interest By David Gurteen I have never been a big fan of key performance indicators (KPIs) for a variety of reasons including they are too easily gamed, they often have unforeseen negative consequences and they can too easily become explicit targets in their own right removing the need for people to think and do the right thing in an increasingly complex world.

Euen Semple

Years ago I wrote that "Social media adoption happens one person at a time and for their reasons not yours". For all the change initiatives that keep people busy at work, the strategising, the PowerPoints, the endless meetings, nothing happens until one person has a conversation with another and the other person thinks "Right, I'm having some of that!".
