Work Together. Get Stuff Done.

"People often misconstrue social networking as the latest technological fad. And while yes technology might be responsible for the features that exist, at its core it is much more a sociological phenomenon." - Kyle Arteaga and Rene Bonvanie, Serena Software


Social Networking within the work place.

  • The CIA, an organization with a global reputation for secrecy, uses a community wiki to collaborate both within their organization and with other intelligence agencies.
  • Serena Software, a company that did around $270 million in licensed revenue last year, is using Facebook as their Intranet.
  • An entire work force is graduating from high school and university. They understand social networking as a way of life rather than a new technological fad. They will not arrive at work next week and ignore the advantages these technologies provide.

A motivated and intelligent work force has arrived. They know something. You should listen.

Take a quick look around. Soak in the work force that surrounds you. The baby boomers are retiring and a new generation is taking their place. It has happened before and it will happen again. Instead of being frustrated with the 'inexperienced new hires' that need training, perhaps you should consider that they are in the process of trying to teach us a better way of working together online.

Smart, successful companies are listening to their work force and are investing in social networking technologies. They understand the value of providing every single intelligent and motivated individual within their organization with the opportunity to contribute the full breadth of their talents. If you didn't need their help then you wouldn't have hired them in the first place. With the right tools in place, your work force can share information that is critical to your success. They can work together, form relationships, and acquire a sense of ownership towards your company's mission.

Social Networking is changing the way we communicate. It creates cohesive groups that enjoy working together. Its impact is as dramatic as email and the telephone.

When you put all these facts about social networking together you will likely conclude, much the same as Forrester Research did in April of this year, that the Enterprise 2.0 industry is an emerging market that is on its way to $4.3 Billion by 2013.
