Creating a Return on Investment (ROI) calculation for Enterprise 2.0 and internal social media

If so, also have a look at the free chapters from Implementing Enterprise 2.0 Return on Investment for Enterprise 2.0 Enterprise 2.0

eLearning is not the answer

Jay Cross

Business learning ROI Informal Learning Web 2.0eLearning is not a big cost-cutter. Corporations are flocking to eLearning for all the wrong reasons. It’s cheaper: no travel, no facilities cost, no instructor salaries. This sort of fanciful thinking tripped up eLearning ten years ago. In that first wave of eLearning, venture capitalists and the learning industry saw fortunes to be made by replacing instructors with computers. It didn’t work.

Yammer and why activity streams are a key foundation for integrated applications and organizations

Trends in the Living Networks

Interestingly, Yammer’s mantra in its external communication is ‘voluntary adoption’, saying among other things ‘voluntary adoption is the new ROI’ They point to how Yammer often takes off in organizations through inital (unpaid) user adoption that frequently flows through into (paid) corporate implementations.

Web 2.0 = read + write. Web 1.0 = connecting ideas. Web 2.0 = connecting ideas + connecting people. Web 1.0 = search. Web 2.0 = recommendations of friends/others. Web 1.0 = find. Web 2.0 = share.

8 Dirty Words

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Social learning is the hottest thing since electricity among web enthusiasts. It’s better to talk about cost/benefit analysis or meeting specific goals than to speak of ROI. Traditional ROI fails to measure the most valuable returns. People who banter about Web 3.0 The “2.0” of Web 2.0 Rather, it signaled that the web did not die in the dot-com bust. Now we are entering an era where the benefits of the web will grow exponentially.

To Really Drive Enterprise 2.0 Forward We Need A Behaviour Change

Dan Pontefract

Dropping Enterprise 2.0 / Social Anything tools into the company theater is not going to guarantee your employees/leaders are collaborating and it’s certainly not going to drive reciprocity. Enterprise 2.0 Whilst I don’t disagree that integration into the workflow isn’t a huge opportunity, to me, we need to stop the press and acknowledge that it’s the behavior of people that has to change in parallel with the deployment of any Enterprise 2.0 / Social Anything technology.

Origins of “eLearning”

Jay Cross

Before the web, we had EDI (electronic data interchange) and EFT (electronic funds transfer). A big part of the sales pitch for early versions of web-supported learning was the elimination of costly trainers. I have been credited with the first use of eLearning on the web. Six months after CBT Systems announced its transformation into SmartForce, the eLearning company , in late 1999, every training company with a dial-up connection and a web page claimed to have eLearning.
