Disruptive digital workplace: 3 approaches

…… Part of The Basics series. First published in March 2013 ……


The digital workplace is disruptive for 3 major reasons:

  • It breaks silos and structures.
  • It challenges the traditional roles of HR, Communication and IT.
  • It empowers people.

Concerns and approaches?  Take a look at the presentation below.

This disruption triggers two major types of concerns:

  • “Wasting time” and business value
  • Information security

How to advance the “digital workplace mode” in your organization? Three approaches are proposed at the end of the presentation.

  • Make it real through personas and linking them together through common processes.
  • Work on the big picture. A model is proposed.
  • Leverage people: co-workers, champions.

Please note that the slides are talking points for a 45-minute presentation. In the preconference workshop ‘Defining your digital workplace” we worked in much more detail on these approaches, specifically on the DW model.
