I’m putting some materials together on “Social Media Inside the Firewall Roll-out Best Practice.” This is part of my new role where I’m consulting/managing a Jive Software based pilot at a big energy company.
I’ve been compiling my notes and gleaning some online research. These are my fave bookmarks so far:

As per my post on Prince, too busy to do this justice but suffice to note 2 excellent posts on social media inside the firewall / enterprise social networks:

Why Your Business MUST Adopt Enterprise Social Software Larry Hawes
Put simply, people will find ways round poor processes and social media makes this more and more easier to do. More fundamentally, the enterprise will lose control of information if it fails to adopt social media – and not the reverse as many IT chiefs seem to fear.
