Portfolios are Personal
Thu, Jan 23rd 2014 11:14a   theprojectwall
Think about your portfolios. Your portfolio of investments. Your portfolio of art. Your portfolio of achievements at work. These portfolios are personal. Where most enterprise project management applications fail is that they do not allow for the personal nature of portfolio management. Of course, and organization has a portfolio of initiatives. It is usually going to be managed around some strategic plan. Plans breed initiatives, initiatives breed programs, programs breed projects. This is the [read] Keywords: ibm applications enterprise

ProjExec 6 – Taking Social Project Management to the Next Level
Mon, Jan 20th 2014 12:11p   theprojectwall
Social Project Management is about engaging the team in collaboration around its project and project schedule. But what about disparate teams working on multiple projects on a program, or even multiple projects that are related only at a strategic-initiative level? Program and Portfolio Management tools have attempted to address this issue but are, in general driven by top down, hierarchical planning.  So, what would a “social” approach to Program and Portfolio management look like?

If you’re heading to Orlando for IBM Connect 2014 (http://www-01.ibm.com/software/collaboration/events/connect/), stop by pedestal 222 and see ProjExec 6, and the new SocialGantt Chart component. With ProjExec 6, social project management becomes social program management. Combine any number of project schedules into a single SocialGantt. Then, socially collaborate on as many projects as you want, all from a single schedule view. ProjExec 6 retains its long-standing position as the only in [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm

IBM Connect 2003 – Purposeful Adoption
Mon, Jan 28th 2013 6:11p   theprojectwall
IBM Connect 2003 (Lotusphere) is in full swing today. It is clear that the focus this year is driving adoption of IBM Connections. At the opening general session, Alistair Rennie pitched the term “purposeful” adoption. Later in the same session, IBM announced three initiatives here to help, including a set of 10 best practices for social adoption (link to follow). It was clear from the focus of these best practices that we’ve moved past the point of technology, and to the point [read] Keywords: collaboration connections domino ibm lotus lotusphere notes application applications community network social software

We here at Trilog Group congratulate our partners at IBM for this excellent achievement, and we are proud to be a leading social business application provider for the IBM Connections platform.

The Problem of Engagement in Social Business
Mon, Jun 18th 2012 11:57a   theprojectwall
Constellation Research blogged earlier this month about the issues that folks are seeing with social media adoption. Of course, as constellation research says, “People” are at the heart of any technology adoption process. Let’s summarize the info that Constellation provides. First, Constellation argues that there are five leading barriers to adoption, 1) Poorly defined incentives, 2) Increase in actual effort, 3) Lack of choice in user experience, 4) Indifference to change [read] Keywords: collaboration application applications development enterprise facebook interface mobile social software twitter

The Collapsing Universe of Social Business
Mon, Jun 18th 2012 3:00a   theprojectwall
Dion Hinchcliffe over at the Enterprise 2.0 blog asks “Will Social Software Startups ‘Collapse into the orbit’ of the big vendors?“. He shows just a small subset of the mergers and acquisitions in the space in the past few years, and the picture painted is one of significant consolidation in the social media playing field. This is a predictable shift, based upon our view of social business software, and the symbiotic relationships between social business platforms and soc [read] Keywords: ibm application applications enterprise facebook integration microsoft social software twitter

When Are Social Business Applications Necessary?
Sat, Jun 9th 2012 8:14p   theprojectwall
Social business seems like it’s everywhere. There are the platforms, like IBM Connections, Jive SBS, and others, and there are the apps, like ProjExec, SugarCRM, etc. It is clear that in order to execute a social business, you need the enabling platform. You cannot start a social business with just a social business application and expect to get the entire organization involved. People need to have a reason to participate in the social platform, and there is simply no single business proc [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm lotus quickr application applications enterprise facebook network twitter websphere websphere portal

Social Business Software and Business Performance
Wed, May 9th 2012 7:09p   theprojectwall
McKinsey has published a report that illustrates the relationship between social technology use and organizational performance, with some interesting results. McKinsey looks at organizations as achieving different levels of social networking: developing, internally networked, externally networked, and fully networked. The names are pretty self explanatory. McKinsey found significant, positive correlations between the presence of social business technologies and business performance.

Social Project Management – Narrating the project as it happens.
Wed, May 2nd 2012 10:04p   theprojectwall
A new term is emerging to describe the paradigm of social business interaction – narration. I really like this term, as it gives a little bit better mental picture of what goes on when using an enterprise social platform, or a social business application like ProjExec. What happens in a consumer social environment like Facebook is that people “narrate” their lives. So,  in a social business environment, workers can learn to “narrate” their work.

Social Task Management and Social Project Management. Friends or Foes?
Wed, Apr 18th 2012 1:36p   theprojectwall
Social task management is getting a lot of press lately, and a number of vendors are adding the capability to their products. Unfortunately, there is some confusion about the difference between social task management and social project management. Hopefully this short post can help to clarify the differences. In short, social task management provides users to define a “to do list on steroids”, share/assign the list with others, and some provide the ability to define an ad hoc “ [read] Keywords: connections ibm application applications enterprise facebook network twitter

The 5 Questions You Should Ask Any Social Project Management Vendor – Part 5
Thu, Apr 12th 2012 3:06p   theprojectwall
This is the fifth in a series of five posts Let’s summarize what we’ve asked so far. In our first post, we asked, “How does your tool allow me to leverage the expertise of my entire organization?” , and noted that the first question begins to illuminate whether what is being sold is “social software” at all. Next we asked “Does your software support real project management?”, and discussed the lack of support for the project management role and practice withi [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm lotus quickr application enterprise facebook network networking social software twitter

The 5 Questions You Should Ask Any Social Project Management Vendor – Part 4
Mon, Apr 9th 2012 3:34p   theprojectwall
(This post is the fourth in a series of five) In this post we discuss something that many collaborative software vendors don’t talk a lot about…how does the software support the needs of upper management and stakeholders? Back in post one, we argued that for a social project management software product to be considered “social”, it should be integrated into the enterprise social platform, the “social fabric” of the organization. This is because so many of the [read] Keywords: collaboration applications enterprise facebook network twitter

Tue, Apr 3rd 2012 9:03a   theprojectwall
(This post is the third in a series of five) In the first two posts of this series (here and here), we discussed that the first order of business when dealing with a social project management software vendor is to determine first, if they are selling social software at all, and second,  if they are selling project management software. In this post we discuss something that most vendors claim to provide – support for social enabled teamwork and collaboration.
