Collaboration and Cultural Change

… or introducing Web2.0 collaborative tools to a geographically, departmentally, culturally disparate organisation, with extremely limited exposure to any “new” technologies.

This should be fun. Rolling out a collaborative Enterprise2.0 tool Atlassian Confluence to an organisation. It’s kind of build the framework, put up a whiteboard with basic instructions (and links to the plethora of web resources), light the touchpaper and stand back.

It’s really a binary gamble – either a collosal failure (albeit a relatively cheap one) or a huge culture changing, paradigm shifting success, encouraging information sharing, true collaboration, discussion forums, generating new communication channels between different parts of the business, generating a healthy bit of competition with different offices trying to outdo each other on their homepages!

Watch this space (for the wreckage!).
