...title caught your attention? Introducing social collaboration to a business isn't always an easy undertaking. We are asking people within all levels of an organization, including executives and senior leaders, to change the way they work. As with any change management process we are bound to hear negative feedback from tentative users. As community managers engage employees in the change process it is important to address any hesitation and uncertainty.
With many organizations using their intranets as a lifeline for sharing knowledge, there is a push to ensure that it meets current and future needs. Many Jive customers are either upgrading their current community, or implementing Jive for the first time to further support their internal communication efforts. Recently I worked with a client on a project to pull off a full intranet replacement with Jive.
Advocacy for people has been the center of both my personal and professional life for over 15 years. I have worked for many companies in collaboration where I partnered with organizations in the midst of change to encourage leadership teams to communicate with the "boots on the ground,"and vice versa. I saw firsthand that we are facilitators in helping companies evolve their business, communications, relationships and access to information.
