Infographic Social Business value example

Infographic eMail versus Blog

Infographic eMail versus Blog

Infographics are a great way to tell a story and explain how things work togehter (or not). “Gartner” say’s that 80% of companies will fail their Social Business goals by 2015 by the reason “CEO commitment”. But why would they not want their people to work smarter?

In my eyes it is like when Internet came up – everyone had the feeling “we need it” – but only very little had a vision, an idea or even a clear example, what the benefits are.

So it is not on the CEOs – it is on the “early adopters”, consultants and experts to SHOW the VALUE of using social business.

Well here is my contribution in one example – and please don’t judge me on my poor “infographic skills” – it is my first one ;-)

Now I would love to get your opinion of course – is this convincing, or not “good enough”, not relevant….

and yes, there is quite some other things to keep in mind and learn – as I mentioned it is “one” example and it needs a strategy and a network of great people as role models… but I think this is another story ;-)

    This is excellent. As a knowledge manager, the main resistance I get from people when I propose new systems, processes, social media, SharePoint etc., is that they simply don’t have the time! What on earth makes people think we want to given them more work to do? We’re simply trying to help staff be more efficient, effective and transparent, and ensure our valuable knowledge is shared across the organisation. I’ve shared this link on our organisational Yammer account here at Plan International in the UK (we do international development work in over 60 countries with over 9,000 staff, currently with a huge focus on the Philippines)- Let’s hope this helps to get the message across. Keep it up – please do more. :) All the best Florence

      Thanks a lot Florence – Social Business/Enterprise 2.0 will be more and more important – in my eyes we can only (or at least much faster) succeed together – sharing our best practices and lessons learned.
      We as humans have to start with a “empty” brain – with the power of sharing at least here – we are more advanced and can learn from each other – not stepping in the same traps or doing it right the first time.
      Good luck for your actions !!

    Brilliant infographic. Thanks for sharing!

    This makes the benefits of using these new tools so transparent and obvious!

    I would have used a forum instead of a blog but who cares?

    Would it be ok to share this graphic on our internal company plattform? :-)

      @Rainer Gimbel, yes, you can use it, and thanks!
      It is right, that a forum would also be possible, but really, a forum -in my eyes – has been outdated by status updates (which could also be used instead of Blogs (we developed a social network – years ago already, which only needed “advanced” status updates (they becam a calendar entry by adding a date for example… a bit like what http://www.trello.com does)

    There is also a great video on this topic, that I like to show in my presentations: Business Practices That Refuse To Die #44: Email Trees

    (in the infographic it should read “TOO old” and “TOO complicated”) <- feel free to remove after the correction

      Thanks @Sebastian Schäfer, very good video – the more (and different) approaches we have here, the better. I think it is not about who had the idea first, but how to win over and convince our people, that there are smarter ways of working. I would love to contribute to a “practical toolbox / convincing examples”
