Next week I will be flying out to London to join my coworker Sasja Beerendonk to deliver a session at ICONUK 2014 on the trials & tribulations of becoming a successful social business. I’m really looking forward to this session in more then one way:

First of all because it will be my first time presenting together with Sasja whom I’ve know for years as a specialist of social business adoption and who, I’m lucky to say,  decided to join the great team we have at Silverside earlier this year. Secondly because our session will be drawing on the real life experience of quite a number of real life customers who’ve gone through or are right in the middle of the process of becoming a social business.

This experience comes from a project Silverside has worked many hours on this past year in which 32 companies were interviewed to see what really worked and what didn’t work in getting people within their organizations to adopt a different way – and in many ways  – philosophy of working. Not just our own customers but many companies we’ve never done business with and who use all kinds of social tools. Not necessarily even the ones we support. After all, in social business the tooling isn’t necessarily the major stumble point, it often is the adoption or lack thereof that makes or brakes a social business project. These interviews resulted in a wealth of information that is being used to further perfect our methodology of user adoption as well as to create white papers and a book that was written by my coworkers  Mirte Bouwmans, Evelyn van Kelle and Roland Driesen in which the combined experience of these companies was translated into a comprehensible and easy to read novel. The book (sorry it is only available in Dutch for know) was published and launched last May.

With our session Sasja and I will also be drawing upon the knowledge gained from these interviews to explain some of the obvious (and less obvious) pitfalls and we hope to give a bit of insight into the struggles many of you are probably facing right now. So join us this Friday in room 4 at ICONUK for our session:

“Beyond theory: Trials & tribulations in becoming a successful social business

There is lots of theory about how to become a social business but what really does or doesn’t work? We wanted to know and interviewed 32 companies in various stages of their journey to becoming a social business. Not just highlighting the big wins but also talking about the struggles and small successes that really made the difference. Taking the experiences of these 32 companies, the likes of Dutch Railways, DAF, Saxion, Forbo Eurocol and Bavaria, we’ve created a Social Business journey scenario that can help you identify the successes and avoid the pitfalls in becoming a social business.”

IBM Connections explained: Why a “Like” matters!
Mon, Aug 1st 2016 12:47p   Femke Goedhart
I often get asked about things in IBM Connections that need some explaining. One of them is the value of using the Like button in IBM Connections and whether people really should use it in a corporate environment. Let me be clear: You should! But in stead of writing another blog on why I decided to do it a little different this time and try my luck on explaining it in a video. I hope this will help! I’ll try to do a few more like these over the coming weeks and in case you guys have que

Indexing support for Activity and Forum attachments in IBM Connections 5.5
Fri, Jun 17th 2016 12:40p   Femke Goedhart
Sometimes with large updates you miss the little things that make the difference… One I missed with the release of Connections 5.5 was that the indexing on attachments has been added for Activities & Forums now: in 5.5: “IBM Connections supports the indexing of file attachment content from the Files, Wikis, Library (Enterprise Content Manager files), Activities, and Forums applications. Content from file attachments in Blogs is not searched.” source Was: “IBM Connecti

So one month into working with panangenda and the evening before flying out to Toronto for another exciting Social Connections event it is time for a little reflection on what has all happened this month. To be honest, it has been a whirlwind. Of impressions, of meeting new people, of learning LOADS of new stuff, of getting really excited about the new product which is going to be launched next Monday (at Social Connections :)) and of getting my feet back on the ground. Sometimes in life you nee

A new phase – I’m joining panagenda!
Fri, Apr 29th 2016 12:37p   Femke Goedhart
As many of you know I’ve been working for several years as a business consultant in the area of Social business, Collaboration and Document Management. However earlier this year I decided that I wanted to expand both my knowledge as well as my international reach beyond what I had been doing so far and decided to open up the door for new opportunities. It didn’t take long for an opportunity to show itself and I am happy to report that I will be joining the team at panagenda starting May 2nd.

Salesforce & IBM Connections integration – keeping your organization connected
Mon, Feb 1st 2016 3:57p   Femke Goedhart
With so many solutions touting social capabilities out there and being used for different situations it can be daunting to decide on when to use what and why. Your organization might already have Salesforce, IBM Connections, Sharepoint and solutions like Jira that offer social capabilities but how do you get all these worlds together? The last thing you want after all is to have one department ‘being social’ in one platform and another somewhere else. That completely undermines the w
