lyndakelly61: my whole family is on FB – we use it to plan events and share stuff. we love it & i’ve got to know my nieces, nephews etc better #e2ef

PRIANational: @e2ef social media is the hardest and easiest thing to build a business case for…

hollingsworth: Deloitte Digital explains why they used Facebook internally versus building or buying their own: faster to market #e2ef

hollingsworth: AMP argues no business case, just do it, and it will go viral – social networks in corporates #e2ef

jverco: Deloitte: With no training, no software cost and immedaite adoption Ent2.0 apps dont need a business case. Just do it #e2ef

lyndakelly61: use tools that people are already using – it’s not rocket science so y dont we do it better?? #e2ef

PRIANational: Social networks maintain good weak tie networks which adds business opportunities #e2ef

PRIANational: The power of social media – charging iphones in a conference! #e2ef

amalaviya: adoption of new technologies needs to be supported by metrics especially when it comes to large enterprises. #e2ef

lyndakelly61: the community self monitors – both in physical and online spaces – we tend to forget this #e2ef

chieftech: Actually @bhowarth is doing a good job of integrating Twitter into the panel discussion :-) #e2ef

lyndakelly61: disagree totally that Facebook is personal, I use it for professional networking & with my staff all the time #e2ef

kcarruthers: privacy is dead – hyperconnectivity rulez #e2ef

jverco: Social media guidlelines: Keep them short and conversation. Have to trust personal judgement. #e2ef

socialalchemy: issues of behaviour a failure to establish good ethics? …it seems that more often than not compliance relies on punitive regulation #e2ef

lyndakelly61: why not just use FB and Twitter in yor org – they’re free! #e2ef


hollingsworth: Work – Technology – Family and You: Westpac’s David Backley has a PhD in that. Fascinating. #e2ef

ideagarden: what drives technology adoption – it fulfills a need, easy to use, price point is good and…it works #e2ef

mattoverington: #e2ef “Westpac does almost 700,000 sessions per day on its netbanking platform.” Wow.

PRIANational: Technologies that have sucessful adoption do not need tutorials #e2ef

artech05: #e2ef David Backley – lack of user-centred design within the organisation while great concentration when focused on external clients

bankingreview: Westpacs Backley says we do things for customers which are really simple but inside the enterprise we forget about user centred design #e2ef

hollingsworth: 6000 concrrent users, 700000 sessons per day. Westpac’s internet banking. User-centred desgn externally exceeds internally #e2ef

chieftech: good point that companies won’t be able to get away with crappy internal systems forever – about the totality of peps blended lives #e2ef

ideagarden: the difficulty that large organisations face is that failures are not small iterative trials but large multi million dollar fuckups #e2ef

iggypintado: Blackley is talking about customers & employees being enabled to CONNECT to other people, information, experiences and ideas, at will? #e2ef

GWhiteOz: #e2ef Westpac blogging two years ago didn’t work. But Second Life did work. Perhaps banks live in virtual worlds

helmitch: Westpac + SL – the project sponsor changed, this changed things #e2ef

seancarmody: I’m seeing commentary about Backley’s belief in “user centered design” at #e2ef I wonder how the IBM outsourcing fitted this view!

hollingsworth: Westpac wont spend money on systems that dont raise revenue or reduce cost. No speculative investments even wth agile methodologies. #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Here’s that theme again. Org complexity makes things too slow to be effective. You have to be so fast these days. #e2ef

helmitch: Gfc has changed the environment – focus is on differnt things cf iterative process – barriers 2 adoptn #e2ef

PRIANational: todays environment will need to prove customer retention or cost savings for them to be adopted – because of econ crisis #e2ef

bankingreview: Backley says anything we put up needs to drive customer retention, revenue or reduce cost. Today we can’t do experimental things #e2ef

ideagarden: in todays climate, any idea needs to either generate revenue or reduce cost. bottom line #e2ef

seancarmody: I’m seeing commentary about Backley’s belief in “user centered design” at #e2ef I wonder how the IBM outsourcing fitted this view!

lyndakelly61: need an internal champion – but what happens when they leave, its a sustainability issue for the org IMO #e2ef

GWhiteOz: #e2ef Westpac blogging two years ago didn’t work. But Second Life did work. Perhaps banks live in virtual worlds

ideagarden: westpacs second life experience, great until the project sponsor left and all the energy disappeared #e2ef

kcarruthers: backley is talking real sense – we need more ppl like this in senior ICT roles #e2ef

trib: Backley is *much* better this year than he was last year. #e2ef

ideagarden: Is work/family conflict fueled by technology or does it enable us to blend the 2? Is this actually a fundamental societal shift? #e2ef

bankingreview: Backley says Westpac has a code of conduct. The code is the same online as for offline. People will do bad stuff regardless #e2ef

hollingsworth: Technology drives work-family enrichment from the value of multiple roles and diversity of experience each brings #e2ef

bankingreview: Backley says you should expect people are adult and can deal with social interactions. They’ve been doing it for a long time! #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: “Make sure your pilot is a pilot” #e2ef

hollingsworth: Westpac’s David Backley refers to Tapscott’s book Growing up Digital and the changing work modes #e2ef

chieftech: @ideagarden not the 1st time technololgy impacted society – e.g. industrial revolution. #e2ef

kcarruthers: backley talking about democratization of app development & agile #e2ef

chieftech: @awmitchell the challenge in big co’s is that a pilot can turn into a production system, but isn’t supportable or scalable #e2ef

lyndakelly61: backley also said 2 have fun with it & create mischief – good ideas! #e2ef

bankingreview: Backley says corporates can be bad at stopping projects. Need to be able to stop or speed up if required #e2ef Sounds obvious? Guess not

ideagarden: two things large corporates are bad at a) stopping a project when it is failing b) winding a project up. Been there, done that #e2ef

lyndakelly61: disagree re sponsors – u need to build org buy-in from beginning & not rely on 1 or 2 people #e2ef

chieftech: nice correction about the history of the Luddites and their attitude to technology – it wasn’t anti-tech as such #e2ef

amalaviya: very interesting: luddites would have been the first ones to use twitter #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Good question about how to maintain project when sponsor leaves. A: “Depends how senior exec is” #e2ef

chieftech: @hollingsworth @artech05 waterfall doesn’t work for solutions that users build themselves. only works 4 deploying E2.0 infrastructure #e2ef

bankingreview: Q Backley:Any formal plans to encourage collaboration between Westpac & St George. Says collaboration is good at middle tier mgt level #e2ef

artech05: Waterfall methodolgies were good for closed design problems – new methodologies are needed for open innovation #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: @awmitchell His ex. was a 50-person blackberry trial became a 1000-people trial you could never turn off. HAs to scale, has fit system #e2ef

@trib you sound like me! This “incoming generation” is bullshit,. it is here right now #e2ef << Amen to that! jverco: J.Gilling: Social media enables comp's to build relationships with your heart. Prior to social media the relat'ship was with your mind #e2ef WORKSHOPS

kcarruthers: some great conversation in my mini-workshops at #e2ef – thx to all participants

ideagarden: #e2ef Roundtables Risks: you talk inside an organisation, you know where it will go, you put it out on a blog and it’s no longer private

ideagarden: #e2ef Roundtables – Discussing the army’s adoption of technology and & interesting that even a strong heirarchical organisation can adapt

ideagarden: #e2ef Roundtables Barriers to allowing 30 – 40 people to chat over the network. average corporates don’t run a carrier networks

ideagarden: #e2ef Roundtables – reflecting on the issues of email when it first came out. We will probably have to go through this learning curve

ideagarden: #e2ef Roundtables – we don’t think you CAN implement enterprise 2.0…it happens.

bankingreview: Audience tables – compelling case for enterprise 2.0 is the discussions are going on already, they happen organically so get involved. #e2ef


amalaviya: Will mobile workflow evolve into a mobile BPM solution for the enterprise? #e2ef

helmitch: Now on to topics about mobile workflow etc #e2ef

rossdawson: 44% of workers are mobile/remote sometimes or always -optus #e2ef

lyndakelly61: looking 4ward to mobile stuff as I think it will be huge #e2ef

ideagarden: strange perspective of tennis guy on making things user friendly -do what you want and tell them to take it or leave it? #e2ef

amalaviya: mobile strategy is a complex area, even likes of Nokia have struggled with it in recent times #e2ef

kcarruthers: good talk from tennis cio #e2ef

lyndakelly61: Tennis guy: testing needs to mirror real life & need to have processes in place to move 4ward w/technology #e2ef


bankingreview: Dawson says all of the major banks and quite a few 2nd tiers are at various stages with Enterprise 2.0 tools. Westpac most advanced #e2ef

helmitch: E2.0 creating the next phase of organisations #e2ef

lyndakelly61: #e2ef smaller orgs using social networks in greater numbers than large

chieftech: @rossdawson asks, “What about the economy” and E2.0? quotes @amcafee that E2.0 makes orgs more different #e2ef

GWhiteOz: current economy is big opportunity for organisations to invest in enterprise 2.0 applications, says Ross Dawson #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Enterprse 2.0 implementation framework – “iterate and refine” #e2ef

helmitch: Iterative process to create value – it’s part of the journey – try + refine #e2ef

GWhiteOz: current economy is big opportunity for organisations to invest in enterprise 2.0 applications, says Ross Dawson #e2ef

helmitch: Many risk averse industries, but driver of value outweighs this, eg connect to expertise – compelling reasons #e2ef

lyndakelly61: Ross: success stories are best way to build business case (that word again!!) #e2ef

helmitch: lots of discussion about pilots today – and choosing when to cut, expand or modify #e2ef

helmitch: champions essential to making the shift and change to E2.0 #e2ef

lyndakelly61: Ross: evangelist within the org are critical, find & support champions #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Building on a great point made in workshops – evangelists *with credibility* is important. #e2ef

helmitch: implementing E2.0 – understand the business drivers – what makes it compelling? what are the risks & barriers? #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Lots of good points here from @rossdawson #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Governance is CRITICAL to Enterprise 2.0 #e2ef

helmitch: you cannot map this out every step of the way -it’s experimentation, learning lessons and applying the lessons learned. Culture change #e2ef

bankingreview: Dawson says success stories make the most compelling business cases. So lets talk more success & less oops, that didn’t work #e2ef

lyndakelly61: iterate & refine, experiment, learn & apply lessons – u cant map this out #e2ef

bankingreview: Our peers, competitors and suppliers are all engaged – we need to be on a parity with them says Dawson. Our table agrees #e2ef


helmitch: need to put things out there and see what happens, how it works. Culture change – “fail fast, fail cheap” – and learn #e2ef

helmitch: having somethng to get into the workflow is the biggest challenge – this needs to happen for it to stick – again, culture change #e2ef

stewartheys: Things we could be using more: Wikis, Yammer, Ning. Now to sell the benefits and encourage adoption. #e2ef

ideagarden: #e2ef problems implementing Enterprise 2.0 – “getting it to stick”

ideagarden: E2.0 is not about IT departments building massive apps ownership can easily be lost to small nimble web companies & prebuilt apps #e2ef

GWhiteOz: #e2ef web 2.0 spreads cost of knowledge acquisition, this excites Blake Dawson IT director

bankingreview: Westpac focused on banking right now – tech no longer the focus. Want to make sure they are around another 200 yrs #e2ef #damnucreditcrunch

GWhiteOz: #e2ef mobile sales automation next big technology for Corp Express

rossdawson: IT needs to ‘show and tell’ so business understands web2 #e2ef

Mrgareth: @alex_manchester All this talk of “fail fast fail cheap” #e2ef Isn’t this a reprise of Gartner’s 2009 prediction #4:

Alex_Manchester: Westpac focusing more on business needs and results, not shiny new apps and tools just for head office #e2ef

helmitch: put a ban on wikis – got more requests, but then easier to have conversations about ‘why, what do u need it for’ – sounds familiar ;-) #e2ef

bankingreview: Backley reminding us that stuff that is cool for 2,000 people in a shiny office may not be so cool for people in branches #e2ef

ideagarden: Interesting strategy from Chrissy Blake Put a ban on new wikis and wait and see how many people want one and are ready to justify it! #e2ef

GWhiteOz: #e2ef employee engagement critical for success of enterprise 2.0 apps

helmitch: change mgt – bringing people along to get them to the ‘aha’ moment and realise how it makes their job easier / more productive #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Backley: “Enterprise 2.0 tools have to be fit for purpose” Agreed. #e2ef

docbaty: @awmitchell Focus on the fundamentals – collaboration; open communication; dialogue; embrace uncertainty & lower control barriers #e2ef

bankingreview: Banks pushing out large volume of content to staff – they sift it themselves.Enterprise 2.0 may help with sifting but not cracked yet #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Backley: “Different business areas have different business needs” – true for lots of things related to intranet/comms #e2ef

@lyndakelly61: I think need to implement a web 2.0 way of thinking/mindset in the org b4 using Web 2.0 apps #e2ef

helmitch: beyond the ‘wiki hysteria’ – get something fit for purpose for the user group-eg no editing on bkg regs.What r u trying to achieve? #e2ef

bankingreview: Backley says We’ve stopped getting as carried away with blogs & wikis & started thinking about what are the problems we need to solve #e2ef

Alex_Manchester: Wikis cn be great for banks for competitor intelligence and fast updates to evolving products. #e2ef

LeslieCBarry: My takeaway – Tap existing peer based collaboration networks within the org and learn how THEY’RE doing it now -leverage and fasttrack #e2ef
