Bayer Medical Science choose IBM Connections for 15.000 employees
Arne Sigurd Rognan Nielsen    

It’s not only the German company Bosch that chooses IBM Connections to go social within their firewalls. Now also the worold known chemical company Bayer Medical Science (BMS) implements IBM Connections for their 15.000 employees.

At the start of this year, BMS had more than 500 active groups, co-called communities, that the employees had created out of their own initiative. Be it for departments such as IT, Accounting, Marketing or topics such as sustainability or women in the company, there are no limits to the imagination. Similarly to Xing groups, the initiators lay down the rules for access to the groups. These range from open communities that anyone can take part in and where everything is visible to closed invitation-only user groups that are invisible to non-members. That’s not all that difficult either, explains De Ruwe. “Starting a community takes 30 seconds and setting up the rules takes ten.”

The CIO himself sets a good example. He is now a member of 30 communities. And they don’t necessarily have anything to do with IT. What’s more, he has got used to hardly ever writing e-mails, instead posting many communications through Connections. “E-mails always go to a closed circle of recipients”, he says according to an article in CIO.de.

I am sure you have a lot of funny stories about your own and others “abuse” of email. Like sending a frustrated email to the wrong person or clicking the replay to all button. You may also have experienced sending confidential emails to a list of unknown email addresses? We have all done those blunders one in a while. That is why we want some new functionalities on our email systems. That is why we want a #NewWayToWork!

Social Business is all about empowerment and engagement
Sun, Nov 23rd 2014 5:12a   Arne S. Nielsen
Social Business. Is it a buzzword only or is there some reality behind it? Some call it Social Business, some call it Open Business and some just call it Ordinary Business. Myself I tend to call it Engaged and Empowered Business because that is what it is all about – empowering employees and make them engaged. I am a strong believer in collaboration between people. You might lift a heavy stone by yourself, but it will take a lot of effort, energy and time to make it. Get help from a friend [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm facebook twitter

Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 9:15a   Arne S. Nielsen
For years I have been traveling around preaching on emails death. Now I have to admit I was wrong all the time. Because email is a great way to send messages even if it’s not fast enough and efficient enough for todays need for speed in execution of our jobs. Therefore email has to change. It has to become more than only an in/out box of messages. Millions of people misuse email for everything they need to communicate, even though picking up the phone is faster. And by using email the wron [read] Keywords: email facebook twitter

Are you one of those who gets overworked and overwhelmed by all incoming and non relevant email? My own method is to not open unread emails until my most important to-do’s are completed. So often I do not open new email until after lunch. New email make me unfocused and disturbs me when trying to work my way through my to-do list. So I want to keep them out of sight for a while. One of my colleagues said this about my method on our intranet! When I am done I have a coffee as a personal gif [read] Keywords: ibm notes email facebook twitter
