Enterprise Social Networking and Organizational Culture (Part 3 of 3)

Welcome back to Prettyeveel’s adventure and my exploration of Enterprise Social Networking and Organizational Culture. This is my last series of posts on this topic, and i’ve split my vlog into 2 separate posts.

The first post explores the experience of a company, that shall not be named, with an ESN platform that they designed and purpose built for their organization. They have experienced mixed results. Find out exactly what they learnt from their experience.

The second post focuses on 4 tips on implementing ESN in your organization.

I hope you find these posts helpful. I look forward to hearing from you and continuing our journey of learning together. =)

Building Corporate Culture with Social Learning in 5 Moments of Need

The ice-cream story

I’ll be posting my second vlog on Enterprise Social Networking and Organizational culture next week. Meanwhile, I thought you’d enjoy a “cartoon-strip” about ESN. I was inspired by a fabulous post  on the blog – This Much We Know. It’s the ice-cream story.  Enjoy!

***

It was a Friday afternoon. Danny, Senior manager HR, went to the office pantry.
He realized that there was a lot of left-over ice-cream from a previous
office event.

Slide02

Danny went back to his cubicle and quickly opened up ToyBook-
the company’s Enterprise Social Networking Platform.

 


Slide04

 

And all the way in accounting….
In another building…
in a distant part of the toy kingdom…


Slide06

Soon, it was 2pm

Slide07 Slide08

Other toys saw that Leonardo was having a great time.

Slide09

 

They didn’t think he deserved all that ice-cream to himself so they decided to stop by at the pantry too.
Slide11

Many toys from different parts of the company turned up and they had a great time enjoying the ice-cream.

Slide13

Danny was very excited when he saw his colleagues post about the fabulous time that they had together !Slide14

So THIS…is the promise of ESN. Connection and the promise of collaboration regardless of distance and time. But does it actually pan out this way for organizations that have adopted ESN? Look forward to my next post! I’ll be sharing exploring examples from Tesla, Red Robin and an organization that shall not be named!

Stay tuned and have a fab weekend!

I sometimes still pinch myself just to make sure that I’m not dreaming. I’m not! I am a wildcat. It’s amazing when things you dream, hope and pine for come true.

First quarter of dreaded winter term has begun. Dreaded because I am seriously a tropics gal, all this cold, ice, snowy isn’t really my thing. I love lying in the sun, toasty warm. So I was worried about Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Worried that i’d wake up everyday weepy, unable to get my mind focused on anything, learn nothing from my courses and fail my classes. And you know what? Somehow winter has been mild this year. Thank you El Nino… =) Thank you for helping me ease into this cold…

Anyhow, i’m really excited about this new quarter. And can you believe, one of our assignments this entire term is to BLOG! To find our voice and experiment on digital presence.

I am so excited!

Of course, I’m suppose to blog on more serious stuff related to some of the theories and concepts we are learning about, but i really want to have fun with this. And I really want to VLOG! I’ve never done it before, except for a recent game that we had developed at work, when I made some videos as a makcik with a youtube channel. And it was such such fun! So i’m hoping I get to push myself a little more and get out of my comfort zone… which is obviously this random rubbish i spew on this blog…that some of you are so kind to read. *muacks*

So stay tuned yar….

Oh by the way, I also moved my blog onto a Northwestern Uni wordpress related site. Think it was time to say bye-bye to blogger… AND it’s one of those things i do that’s akin to pinching myself. It makes this experience more real to me….I’m trying to savour ever precious moment.

Till later folks…and oh yar, to my #msloc430 classmates who are reading my blog for the first time….WELCOME TO THE PAR-TAAAYYYY!!!!
