Search google or Amazon for the words “social intranet” and you won’t find a lot of great resources. Why is that?
I started a conversation on twitter today asking a similar question and was lucky to have a number of very experienced intranet developers respond.
When I do a search for “social intranet” on the Jive Community, I see a totally different picture.
Consulting companies are talking about it:
- Making Good on the Social Intranet Promise, by Wes Goldstein, JCS Consulting, Feb 2014
- Why You Need a Social Intranet, by Andrew Kratz, Social Edge, May 2012
Alcatel-Lucent is talking about it:
- Social intranet unlocks knowledge and creates value, Jem Janik, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, April, 2013
And of course, Jive Professional Services and Product Marketing are talking about it and questioning it:
- What’s In It For Me? An Adoption Strategy for Your Social Intranet, Virginia Ulrich, March, 2015
- Is there such thing as a Social Intranet?, Deirdre Walsh and Tim Zonca, March 2012
Beyond the Jive Community
I don’t believe the words intranets and social are linked only by members of the Jive Community. It’s time for more resources. I’ll look at what part I can do to contribute. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
