Design Considerations For Enterprise Social Networks

Collaborative Thinking

While enterprise social networking has been covered extensively in the media and by IT analyst firms, one of the least discussed aspects of the topic has been the issue of design and the potential impact of design on employee adoption of such tools and applications. Instead, the information was presented at a holistic and inter-disciplinary level, covering a collection of related issues: Affordance-centered design. Social theory and design. Enterprise architecture.

Dave Briggs has launched a rescue bid , and I’m sure Dave has the skills and helpers to develop a lighter version if he can persuade the LGA (and users) to collaborate in a handover, and can develop a new business model. The emphasis on open access and sharing changes where value may reside: so what are the new business models? That would be a good demonstration of migration from old to a new organisation-based model.
