#ESNchat: ESNs role in The Social Organization





I'll be participating in this twitter chat at 7.00pm BST on Thursday 27th September:


ESNs role in The Social Organization

1.   Does the concept of social capital provide a useful focus for ESN work? Why?

2.   Does helping employees understand the value of social capital support adoption of ESNs? How?

3.   Can a focus on social capital enable greater integration between the activities and organisation of IT, HR, OD, CRE, FM, IC etc

4.  How can ESN groups and community management be aligned with organisational teams, networks and communities?

5.   What type of analytics are useful in informing ENS use and accumulation of social capital?

6. How does social capital enable companies to move along the ESN/Community maturity curve faster? Why?


If you're on Twitter, do join me. (And if not, what impact does that have on your ability to facilitate enterprise social networks and the social organization?)

ConnectedCommons webinar: Managing Networks in The Social Organization



I'll be speaking on a webinar hosted by Connected Commons on 24 October.

If you've not come across it, Connected Commons helps spread understanding of informal organisational networks, and especially their analysis, ie organisation network analysis, ONA.

I think these informal networks are important, providing a basis for organisational social capital and holistic business performance.

However, these days there are also increasing opportunities to 'formalise' the most important or strategic networks too and to use these alongside or instead of traditional functions and projects. These networks need to be managed or perhaps facilitated in a very light touch way but can still be used and supported to harness expertise, manage change and produce other contributions for a business.

An organisational focus on networks rather than just vertical functions or horizontal project teams also has consequences for workplace design, the selection and use of enterprise social networks, HR practices and leadership behaviours, etc. These formal networks also still depend on the use of techniques like organisational network analysis to fully understand and improve them.

In this presentation I will build upon the approach described in my recent book book ‘The Social Organization’ to explain why and how businesses need to focus on, analyse and develop the relationships and networks between people as well as the individuals themselves, including the role played by ONA.

Presenting at REBA Innovation Day



So much of what we do in HR and talent management has changed beyond all recognition over the last ten years. But not reward.

I'm keen to do my bit in helping us move our reward agenda forward too and am delighted that I'll be presenting my thoughts on this, and especially on how it is being shaped through technology and analytics, at REBA's Innovation Day on 22 November 2018.


Horizon scanning: Workforce, organisation and technology-based changes driving reward today
 
  • Reviewing how technology is driving change in managing, measuring and organising people, and how all of these changes then drive innovation in reward
  • Identifying the new opportunities for rewarding differently, along with their main risks and benefits
  • Selecting a way forward based on an individual organisation’s own, unique capabilities and principles
  • Using analytics and experiments to guide and optimise the changes

Speaker: John Ingham, Author of ‘The Social Organization’; people strategist focusing on digital HR and the future of work - voted UK's 7th top HR thinker


I look forward to speaking and maybe seeing you at the event.
