Hierarchy and Megaphones

Hierarchy Organizational Hierarchy is an authoritarian concept where people and groups are ranked one above the other according to status. In hierarchy, one actor, the hierarch, is superior to all of the others in the network set. Hierarchical authority in multiple network sets is transitive, e.g., a general manager in Poughkeepsie has the same authority…

Same Time Same Place

Networks can defeat the tyranny of geography. Unfortunately, there are major unintended consequences. Among the most severe problem is the faulty approach to collaboration, discussion and conversation. People use technology when face-to-face is required. They use face-to-face when technology works great. It’s a real mess. Fortunately, the definitive answer is simple! There are four choices.…

SNS Implementation

There is a gargantuan split in how people approach enterprise pull-through for enterprise social network services (SNS). The problem is naive people, in 2014, are still leading with tools and technology. What’s even worse, despite massive failures and hundreds of billions down the drain, some are following the 1990s ERP deployment handbook for social network…

Enterprise KM Metrics

There is a lot of deceptive nonsense about knowledge management (KM) measures and metrics. Let’s face it, for typical commercial business activities there is only one enterprise KM metric – discounted cash flow (DCF). Sure, there are other lofty Enterprise KM Metrics like triple-bottom line (TBL), people-planet-profit, etc., but they all depend on DCF. Without DCF there…

Prior to the 1980s, for most of the 20th Century, businesses were organized functionally. Discrete corporate departments led manufacturing, sales, marketing, human resources and so forth. Well-managed businesses enjoyed equilibrium and steady growth. Enterprise Value Chain Circa…
