Adoption

Make a true social impact with people, business & technology

The Sitrion Adoption Framework focuses on the three paths the project team has found to be most impactful to a successful social computing journey - People Engagement, Business Alignment, and Technology Enablement.

People Engagement

Establish a sharing corporate culture

The more your people are able to connect and share knowledge with each other, the better your business results will be. Recent studies prove this. While this may seem obvious, it takes time and efforts to establish a true sharing and crowdsourcing culture. Leveraging the best practices from our Adoption Framework you get your people faster on board, and enable them to better connect and to efficiently share with colleagues in a collaborative environment.

Cultural Assessment

Understand and embrace the “soft” side of your organization.

Social is all about connecting people, sharing expertise, and leveraging your enterprise technology investments. Unfortunately, most social initiatives start without a clear understanding of the corporate values and communication norms underlying their organization’s culture. This is crucial, ground your social strategy on an in-depth assessment because it will provide context for impact analysis, planning, and risk abatement to maximize the impact of your social initiative.

Recognition

Make a ‘thank you’ or a ‘well done’ more powerful.

It’s a fact that engaged and motivated people have 40% less sick days, work harder (78%) and are 200% more innovative. It doesn’t take much to have a huge impact on people’s engagement. Encouraging employee participation can be as simple as publicly showing appreciation for a job well done, or rewarding significant achievements. We help you create meaningful approaches for motivating social behaviors.

Campaigns

It's a sprint not a marathon.

All successful social initiatives are grounded on continuously driving awareness and demand. The launch of the social platform is just the start. Together with our ecosystem we have gathered compelling best practices to drive adoption and engagement for your social initiative. Let's develop unique methods for viral and programmatic propagation.

Education

Encourage your employees to take social to the next level.

Your social enterprise will pave the way toward the next generation workplace. With our Adoption Network’s educational tools, establish processes that facilitate employee onboarding, continuous learning, and knowledge retention. Your professional education and development programs, combined with social technologies, will help people become more connected, productive and informed.

Ambassador Networks

Encourage adoption with peer-to-peer support.

People will have challenges to use the social platform. The most successful path to sustainable and growing adoption is to have someone onsite who serves as a trusted advisor. We help you build systems that empower advocates, defuse resistors, and facilitate success sharing to build trust and rapport across the organization.

Community Management

Look for characters and environments to facilitate contribution.

Each community is a vital part of your social initiative to help drive adoption and engagement. While it is not rocket science to run a community, you can do a lot to provide an environment for prospering communities. We help you to institute procedures for selection, skill building, and expectation setting around community curation, lifecycle management, and moderation.

Business Alignment

Increase organizational readiness to drive business value

The more your people are able to connect and share knowledge with each other, the better your business results will be. Recent studies prove this. While this may seem obvious, it takes time and efforts to establish a true sharing and crowdsourcing culture. Leveraging the best practices from our Adoption Framework you get your people faster on board, and enable them to better connect and to efficiently share with colleagues in a collaborative environment.

Organizational Assessment

Get an accurate picture of the current state.

Don’t know where to start with your adoption & engagement initiative? While the best start is to assess the current situation, it shouldn’t take months to get there. We provide you the fast track to understanding organizational structures, leadership paradigms and resourcing. This will provide context for impact analysis, planning, and risk abatement.

Coalition

Make your journey to social a team effort.

The key to launching a successful social business platform is getting both executive buy-in and the right stakeholders on board to encourage employee adoption and engagement. By forming strong coalitions around your social enterprise, we’ll help you build momentum around your social change efforts.

Vision, Mission, Values

Encourage your stakeholders to embrace social change.

Have you clearly articulated your social initiative’s corporate vision, mission and value statements? If so, you’re off to a great start. If not, we’ll work with you to formulate a strong social vision and mission that resonates with your employees. Provide added value behind your social enterprise by formulating key performance indicators to measure the full impact of change in your organization.

Change Alignment

Guide and support employees as you transition to social.

Your social enterprise will pave the way toward the next generation workplace. With our Adoption Network’s educational tools, establish processes that facilitate employee onboarding, continuous learning, and knowledge retention. Your professional education and development programs, combined with social technologies, will help people become more connected, productive and informed.

Governance

Set standards that help you meet corporate and regulatory requirements.

Institute the standard policies and procedures, terms of use, and ethical standards that form the backbone of a solid social enterprise. Protect your intellectual property, and ensure your social platform complies with corporate and industry requirements. Establish a governance structure that puts your social initiative on solid ground and protects against common change management pitfalls.

Socially-Enabled Processes

Integrate daily activities and business processes into your social enterprise.

Increase the value of your social business by moving daily workplace processes and procedures into your social infrastructure. We’ll work with you step-by-step to transform your work streams from static communication platforms to collaborative and interactive networks.

Technology Enablement

Harness the power of enterprise-readiness for your social workplace

We know that every organization’s technology environment is unique. Nevertheless, all organizations face the challenge of providing a seamless user experience that offers mobile support, and leverages your existing Microsoft & SAP technologies and enterprise ecosystems. Following the Adoption Framework we’ll help you assess your technical landscape and create an enterprise-ready foundation for the next generation social workplace.

Landscape Assessment

Discover the power of your social environment.

Every corporate IT environment is unique and has the potential to become truly social. Similar to your organizational assessment, we'll help you to evaluate your existing technology environment and create a customized roadmap for rolling out and managing your social infrastructure beyond implementation.

Architecture

Integrate core technologies and synchronize your system’s capabilities.

Get the most out of your Social Workplace implementation by providing an integrated, seamless user experience for employees. You’ll have the added advantage of leveraging our team of experienced consultants to help you build recommendations for logical and physical architectural blueprints, and scalability requirements.

User Experience & Design

Create a seamless user experience for people, not robots.

Design a roadmap that’s human-centric and focused on your key audience: employees. Build in requirements that reflect your corporate brand and culture, creating a fully-integrated user experience. Overcome common social challenges when it comes to adoption, and implement an enterprise-ready, social business solution that your people like and use.

Mobility

Work in the office, at home, or on the go with social.

Our Adoption Framework will steer you towards a social business platform that makes mobile applications both accessible and enterprise-ready. Our experience, coupled with our Adoption Framework’s best practices, will allow you to easily run all of your business apps on a single mobile device. Configure and test your mobile applications to address mobile security and policy issues sooner rather than later.

Enterprise Integration

Use a social platform that pulls – not pushes – communications.

Your social intranet manager will likely want your organization’s business data and applications brought onto a single, centralized platform. With your Social Workplace implementation, utilize third-party system integrations to address business, compliance, and risk management requirements. Importing your business data into your social business solution not only creates more business value, but also incentivizes people to use your social platform.

Deployment

Get your Social Workplace implementation up and running, fast.

Institute the standard policies and procedures, terms of use, and ethical standards that form the backbone of a solid social enterprise. Protect your intellectual property, and ensure your social platform complies with corporate and industry requirements. Establish a governance structure that puts your social initiative on solid ground and protects against common change management pitfalls.
