Ross Dawson's Enterprise 2.0 Lessons

Other than Stephen Collins giving away his ticket to the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Sydney this week, the only thing I've heard from the event so far is about Ross' key note. As well as sharing his slides, Ross shares six lessons:

  1. Make governance an enabler.
  2. Start from business applications, not tools.
  3. Make work easier.
  4. Build strategies at the architecture level.
  5. Allow users to experiment.
  6. Create pilots that yield useful lessons.

Read the rest of his post for the details.

BTW Ross is running an executive forum on Enterprise 2.0 in Sydney in this coming February. If you're trying to convince the higher powers in your organisation to get on board Enterprise 2.0, encourage them to get along to this event!

And if you're out there having blogged or are blogging about the event, let me know!

  1. The only reason Caronne got my ticket was that I ended up simply not being able to go due to client demands on my time. I'd have just about killed to be there otherwise.

    Feedback is that Day 1 was a blinder with several good talks (whether or not you agreed with the speakers). Day 2 was apparently a disappointment with several speakers simply not a part of the Web 2.0/Enterprise 2.0 movement and merrily declaring so.

    I'm all for Devil's Advocate approaches in any major implementation or cultural/organisational shift, but to have supposedly expert speakers dealing with these issues as simply a redevelopment approach is wrongheaded. The entire point of Enterprise 2.0, to my thinking, is to enable and advocate organisational sharing and distribution of knowledge and information. The tools are actually simply an underlying infrastructure to a much more important mind shift.
