How Numbers Lie | Digital Tonto - 0 views

  •  
    When managers say they are data driven and ROI focused they are usually more intent on professing a belief than delivering results. They are, essentially, accidental theorists, putting their faith in an abstract idea rather than engaging in any true analysis of cause and effect. Despite what many will tell you, numbers can lie and only fools follow them blindly.

SharePoint is Back, Yammer... Not So Much - 0 views

  •  
    As Yammer integrates more with Office 365 there seems little point, and little desire from Microsoft, to keep it as a separate product. This isn't to put Yammer down - it's a good tool, has many thankful customers and fulfills a real need for many. But it's clear that Microsoft sees Yammer features (or features inspired and powered by Yammer technology) as parts of Office 365.

  •  
    "Here we present four specific approaches to the creation of what we call digital "hives"-electronic hubs bristling with collective activity and designed to solve a particular problem or set of problems, to drive new habits, and to encourage organizational change (exhibit). Digital tools to facilitate networking and collaboration propel these "horizontal" cascades, which at their best can weave new patterns of engagement across geographic and other organizational boundaries. In this way, they make it possible to have new conversations around problem solving, unlock previously tacit knowledge, and speed up execution. "

Reporting events and games - including saving Slapham community spaces | socialreporters - 3 views

  •  
    Although we'll be writing a lot here about the potential of social media to help people tell their stories, share ideas, start and continue conversations, it is seldom enough on its own. In fact, it is still very much a minority medium in the field of local community action - however powerful it can be, as shown by the work of hyperlocal bloggers (examples here, and we'll be mapping more).
