Chapter 19. Assessments > Activity: Collaborative Readiness

Activity: Collaborative Readiness

A specific area of cultural readiness is the ability to collaborate. This activity measures amount of collaboration or other cooperative behaviors in existence. This may even include Facebook™-type constructs or even Twitter™ in some organizations. This assessment is important when content management, document management, and workflow are within the realm of the EIM team. Additionally, this assessment is handy if the Business Readiness assessment picked up on social networking as a possible enabler of business goals. This assessment is usually done via examination of the technology available, its extent of deployment, and the usage. Additionally, a brief survey, similar to the Change Capacity, can be used to see if the organization even wants to collaborate.

This is not a trivial subject. As organizations become more sophisticated in the ability to reach across organizational boundaries, the need to leverage and manage the collaboration increases. In addition, there is an opportunity to improve how an enterprise makes decisions by instituting and managing collaborative and social technologies. There are several labels (ours is collaborative business intelligence or CBI) to the formal process of capturing and using the intelligence on how an organization interacts and responds to information. If anything like this is on the enterprise radar, then this assessment should be considered. Lastly, often companies have a situation where SharePoint or Lotus files are out of control. This assessment offers a chance to zero in on this issue.
