While some people are still arguing about the terminology andimportance of enterprise20, social media or social business design,others are busy applying the concepts and ideas behind these labelsre-thinking the way organisations operate.
Evidence? Plenty! Take a look what members of the Adoption 2.0 Council are working on or visit the website cases2.com or Jakob Morgan’s list of 50 enterprise20 case studies.
e20cases.org is another site that showed up on my radar a while ago.
It is a platform set up by academics from different institutions:
- Andrea Back – University of St. Gallen, Switzerland
- Michael Koch – Bundeswehr University, Germany
- Stefan Smolnik – European Business School, Germany
- Klaus Tochtermann - University Graz, Austria
Thecase studies listed come from a range of organisations of all sizes,industries, geographies and cover various use cases and technologies.Some of them are extremely detailed, others give a broad overview. Getin touch with the authors of the website if you would like to see yourcase study listed or if you would like them to help you write it.Through their research they have come up with a standardised templatethat can help to compare E20 projects.
Looking at what e20cases.org is trying to achieve and what Headshift has to offer, it seems a great fit for a partnership. Since 2003 we have worked with dozens of clients to address specific business needs using social tools. We have a constantly growing list of case studies that will now also be published on e20cases.org.
So far, you can find the following Headshift case studies on the website:
- Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP – Building a social intranet
- BP Marketing – Idea generation through competition
- International FMCG Company: Improving transparency and knowledge management in the legal team
- Allen & Overy LLP: Improving informal knowledge sharing and expertise location
We are looking forward to adding new case studies and a fruitful partnership between e20cases.org and Headshift.
Enough said for now. Take a minute or two and browse through all the case studies listed on the site.
Small caveat: e20cases.org itself is currently in German, but will change to English over time. The website has now been translated into English.
