Enterprise social technologies

I am presenting on enterprise social technologies, learning and performance at the Learning Technologies conference in London today. Most large organizations have something like  Microsoft Sharepoint, an intranet, or perhaps a social tool such as Socialcast. But how can you tell if these tools are right for the job? How can these tools support a coherent social strategy across the enterprise?

7 facets ESNIt is time for L&D, IT and the business to speak the same language. How do you know if your organization has the right mix of information technology to support social learning, collaboration and knowledge-sharing, if you cannot discuss this with colleagues outside your department? Today, I will present a common framework that describes how enterprise software can align with seven key work performance facets. My presentation will go into the details of how I developed this framework, the research and models behind it, and how it enabled a client’s learning & development department to have a meaningful conversation with the CIO.

Enterprise social networks can help connect collaborative and cooperative behaviours to support learning by doing and knowledge-sharing. Individual knowledge workers can contribute through practices like PKM, but organizations should ensure their software platforms support seven key facets to help personal knowledge become organizational knowledge.
