strategic framework you need to use emergent collaborative software behind your company s firewall to solve business problems, unearth new opportunies and to drive innovation.This book is about enterprise 2.0 As defined as the use of emergent social software platforms by business in pursuit of their goals regardless of whether it is inside or outside the firewall.Jacob Morgan is the principal and co founder of Chess Media Group, a management consulting and strategic advisory firm on collaboration He is the author of his new book The Collaborative Organization, the first strategic guide for executives and decision makers seeking to deploy emerging technologies and strategies in the workplace published by McGraw Hill, due out June 2012.My rating4,5 stars on a scale 0 5.In an earlier post I wrote about the inertia of some managers for investing in knowledge management In that post I made a reference to Kaplan and Norton s Strategy Maps Converting Intangible assets into tangible outcomes.Jacob includes one at least for me essential part of it None of these intangible assets has value that can be measured seperately or independently.The value of these intangible assets derives from their ability to help the organization implement its strategy..Intangible assets such as knowledge and technology seldom have a direct impact on financial outcome such as increased revenues, lowered costs and higher profits, Improvements in tangible assets affect financial outcomes through chains of cause and effect relationships.Jacob and I agree completely with that statement.The author claims that one can use the book as a guide for a one s collaborative journey One should utilize everything you can in this chapter and in the book, adapt it, change it and make it your own Regular readers may see a similar approach as of my blog serve4impact context, connect, construct and compact changes But be cautious the book has a technology focus To really start your collaborative journey I would like to recommend Morton Hansen book on Collaboration and Andrew McAfee s Enterprise 2.0 I refer buying this book to anyone who is working in a knowledge intensive industry As a manager or profesional It is not limited to leaders for creating , implementing and adapting a strategy Buy the book and do not read all of it Check out your action points and start reading As stated before, there is evenfood of thougth such as this fine reading list.One flaw of the approach is that the approach of collaboration is limited at the enterprise level Be aware of that.But to mitigate that flaw, I will include some fine decks Not for reading, but for creating action See Organizations need to collaborate to be successful This has always been true What has changed is the complexity of organizations, the size of organizations, the increasing desire for speed, and the dispersion of team member Seeat Organizations need to collaborate to be successful This

stakeholders nobodies getting back to my tweets or Facebook posts You need to figure out what social and collaborative technologies work for your organization and implement them but according to a plan THE GENERAL OVERVIEW This is a fun book One of its real strengths is the multitude of real life examples that the author uses in explaining how his ideas can be operationalized The other real strength is the really concrete way in which the ideas are set out so that anyone no matter what the size of their organization can begin to implement social and collaborative technologies in their workplace On a personal note, spread over a range of studios in a number of different countries as we are as an organization, we ve found this book really useful in our own practice We have been using these technologies for a long time ourselves but found lots of interesting insights in the book which have helped modify some of the ways in which we were using these technologies in our own work We
