Complicated or Complex? The "suck it and see" approach

Governance in a Networked World

The proposed problem resolutions that might arise between the two are quite different, with the complicated regime supporting our natural tendencies to break thing down to analyse things in smaller chunks before combining them back up into a hopefully good solution. On the other hand for complex environments it is suggested that this approach is simply fruitless, and one needs to probe and experiment and then observe emerging patterns before taking action.

Communities of practice: two disastrous approaches

Joitske Hulsebosch

The two disastrous approaches he sees are: "1 - Creating an organisational template for communities of practice, with a full roll out plan, dedicated staff etc. This is the classic engineering approach which assumes that there must be a top down, designable RIGHT answer. In practice different communities work in different ways and in different ways at different times. I agree that both approaches are disastrous.

Moving to a Multi-Vendor Approach to Handling Today’s More Complex Content Management Requirements.

Portals and KM

In the past firms have taken a product-specific approach to their enterprise content management (ECM) strategies: “document management for office docs, web content management for online content, records management for corporate records, and so on.”   They suggest taking a content centric approach rather than a tool centric approach to handle this complexity.

What Difference A Year Doesn't Make: Lotus Connections & SharePoint

Collaborative Thinking

The primary difference between a Gateway and Enhancement approach is that the Gateway's focus is primarily on attaining some level of interoperability with SharePoint. In essence, a vendor pursuing this approach begins to use SharePoint itself as its base infrastructure platform. This integration model differs significantly from the Enhancement and Gateway model since the vendor becomes almost entirely dependent on SharePoint.

James Dellow on User Adoption Strategies, "a great reference that covers all the major approaches that you should consider"

The emphasis of this book is on describing a range of strategies that will work for second wave adopters, rather than a magic formula approach. He does provide a user adoption model to follow that pulls these strategies into a manageable framework, but within this approach there is still room for these different options to be fitted together into what he later describes as the user adoption "jigsaw".
