Many organizations assume that simply implementing collaboration tools will foster great collaboration, perfectly aligned with business objectives and automatically super charge processes and projects. Newsflash - it doesn't.
Like any business initiative, collaboration requires good design and a well-defined implementation strategy. Not just around the tools, but also around people and good collaborative behaviours. What do good collaborative behaviours look like? What part do senior leaders, middle managers and team leaders, community managers need to play in order to drive these behaviours and make our tool deployment successful?
Alister will present a methodology to accomplish this, as explained in his latest book, "Designing Collaboration: An Essential Handbook for the Digital Workplace."
Following almost 20 years at Australia’s largest telecommunications company, in various content management, intranet and collaboration roles, Alister undertook consulting engagements with medium and large organisations focusing on the effective use of their social collaboration platforms and building their collaborative capability.
In 2014 he co-founded Innosis with innovation specialist Andrew Pope, focusing on building great collaborative behaviours in organisations and developing a methodology and framework for achieving it.
