Thanks for the post Bill. It is definately a major challenge for Cisco and all vendors of collaborative technology to market a seperate agnostic approach to collaboration strategy and architecture. I am 100% sure that in the back of every prospect, they are thinking... But is it really agnostic?...

Bill –

Thanks for your post. This so-called white paper is utterly ridiculous. Sad to see how little progress has been made. The only surprise here is the conservative claim that ONLY 70% of enterprise collaboration efforts will fail outright. Anyone reading this BEWARE, you actual failure rate will be closer to 100% if you read or follow this revolting rubbish.

This technology-led, or the paper’s lame codeword, 'architectural,' approach to collaboration is patently incorrect and will fail with more like 100% confidence.

Isn't anyone else shocked with this utter nonsense? Why even bother with a paper on "Transforming Collaboration Through Strategy" and leaver OUT the Number One way people collaborate: face-to-face authentic conversation.

Collaboration is NOT a process, technology, architecture or strategy. Collaboration is a complex human behavior. This paper is particularly pathetic from a company that use (abuses?) the tag line, “The Human Network.” Good grief.

The vulgar, dehumanizing, technology-saturated, anti-social enterprise described here needs LESS collaboration IT technology and more, a LOT more human conversation.

If you want to know what the future of the social enterprise really is, try this --

Thanks again. Apoplexy always beats caffeine to start the day!

Bill - You've done a nice job of summarzing Joe Moran's white paper and have validated many of the points I make about the best ways to approach leveraging new digital technologies. I'm sharing this post with the Social Media in Organizations (SMinOrgs) Community. Thanks.
