I don't know anyone who has ever associated SAP with "simple."
Nice post, Julie. I use the same figure in The Visual Organization. Great minds!
Nice post, Julie. It never ceases to amaze me: we can search billions of web pages in seconds finding exactly what we want. Yet, many employees cannot locate simple documents within their companies. Worse, many create dupes when there's already something out there--or pay to have it done. ESR is key in big companies but, as you point out, is often erroneously viewed as an IT expense.
Really interesting chat. I agree with about 90% of what Scott says. Disclaimer: I'm one of his college friends and talked to him about Mindfire at different points.
I really love this quote: Latent inhibition has a corollary: too much specialized knowledge can stand in the way of creative thinking.
I am so happy to be part of this revolution! Phil Simon
I must admit. This is pretty smart.
Michael Great post. This is particularly well said: Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. ....reminds me of Kranzberg's law, “Technology is neither good nor bad; nor is it neutral.” I agree with you that we have to be mindful of history and try not to look at the shifts caused by technology without an appropriate historical context. This post also reminded me of the first few pages of my next book: Hopefully this isn’t too shamelessly self-promotional.

Mike Good post. I agree that there's a great deal of confusion surrounding the term "Enterprise 2.0." Andrew McAfee and others define it as more of a social or collaborative term. I understand this definition but think of "E2.0" more broadly to include MDM, BI, SOA, clouds, SaaS, open source, and a bunch of other newer technologies available to organizations. I think that the subject is so important that I decided to write a book about it, along with help from many experts. ** End of shameless plug** Phil
