Future of Collaborative Enterprise

The aim of the Future of Collaborative Enterprise project is to draft some paths to a better understanding of organizational evolution in the era of the social web, for use, remixing and improvement by anyone interested in business transformation.

To do so, we are interviewing academics, practitioners and thought leaders from diverse fields (social business, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, IT, education, scientific research, etc) following a Delphi survey-like methodology, and will then build scenarios from all gathered insights, with the help of design thinking methods, to sketch plausible solution prototypes.

Cisco Blog – The Future of Collaboration

by OJ Winge September 18, 2012

In the recent 2012 IBM C Suite Study, leaders said that Collaboration is the number one trait leaders are seeking in their employees, with over 75% calling it critical, and many now see technology as an enabler of collaboration and relationships – those essential connections that fuel creativity and innovation.

We are shaping a future:

  • where collaborative work spaces are a blend of physical and virtual,
  • where the choice of collaboration tool will be the users choice, not IT’s,
  • where social networks are integral to the fabric of our social identity,
  • where digital communities are incubators of ideas and innovation and
  • where knowledge flow extends beyond the enterprise, to partners and customers;
  • all facilitated by ubiquitous collaboration capabilities.

Coveo And The Future Of Collaboration

By Kaihan Krippendorff.  September 19, 2012.  

Consider that while we have latched on to terms like “collaboration” and “innovation” only in the last couple of decades, these concepts have been at the heart of civilization’s evolution since man first started shaping tools and planting seeds. Chinese farmers discovered the wheelbarrow around 100 B.C. but it took over one thousand years for Europeans to learn of and adopt this simple tool. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic texts were illegible for nearly 2,000 years until French linguists abruptly solved their puzzle in the 1820s. Mankind’s history has been shaped by lost knowledge.

But as our knowledge shifts from physical to digital form, it transcends the barriers that have contained it.
