Key #mslocjam questions concerning implementation of social technology platforms include:
How do you deal with issues related to scope? Pros/cons of going enterprise-wide vs. starting with smaller segments where there may be high energy around adoption. And if you opt for a strategy to begin with a smaller segment — what’s the right size? And what is the right pace for rolling out to the larger enterprise?
How do you think about integrating platforms within an enterprise? In some cases it seems clear that a new, enterprise wide platform could replace disparate systems that may have outlived their value. On the other end of the continuum, however, is the downside of trying to force-fit all work activity into one platform. How do you think about striking the right balance here?
For these topics we are interested in hearing about effective practices or innovative new approaches. We are particularly interested in your more reflective thinking — based on your own experiences in working to help organizations become more connected and open in their knowledge sharing, what insights do you draw?
