Dion Hinchcliffe has just posted State of the Enterprise 2.0. Absolutely worth reading. He reviews the lessons learned in the Enterprise 2.0 world in the past 12 months since Andrew McAfee proposed this definition. Hinchcliffe provides 7 specific lessons learned:
- Lesson #1: Enterprise 2.0 is going to happen in your organization with you or without you.
- Lesson #2: Effective Enterprise 2.0 seems to involve more than just blogs and wikis.
- Lesson #3: Enterprise 2.0 is more a state of mind than a product you can purchase.
- Lesson #4: Most businesses still need to educate their workers on the techniques and best practices of Enterprise 2.0 and social media.
- Lesson #5: The benefits of Enterprise 2.0 can be dramatic, but only builds steadily over time.
- Lesson #6: Enterprise 2.0 doesn't seem to put older IT systems out of business.
- Lesson #7: Your organization will begin to change in new ways because of Enterprise 2.0. Be ready.
He also proposes an extension of McAfee's orignial SLATES mnemonic:
Hinchcliffe's update includes the concepts of Freeform, Social and Emergence:
I agree that E2.0 is more about a way of working than about technology per se, and that it is not a replacement for existing technology or processes. The existing paradigm of enterprise process and technology will continue to meet many needs of the organization, we just need to open our minds and let the new way of working improve the processes that do not work well now.
