Growing organizations face one commonly recurring problem: The "siloing" of people and processes and information. As businesses become more complex and global, the problem becomes even more challenging. This problem creates expensive, time-consuming obstacles that keep the organization from innovation and profitability.

Founder Andy Jankowski reports: "Business Guru Peter Drucker said 'the most valuable asset of a 21st century organization will be its knowledge workers and its productivity' and we see Enterprise Social Networks as enabling knowledge workers to be more productive. This report educates organizations on the opportunities available by integrating Enterprise Social Networks into their business."
Enterprise Strategies' report, Enterprise Social Networks as an Enabler of Collaboration, authored by Steve Crompton, explains how new technology platforms have created quantifiable improvements in productivity by enhancing collaboration among workers. The report draws from deep research in this relatively new field to explain to readers how Enterprise Social Networks function and how they improve collaboration (including a refined definition of the term "collaboration"). The report explores various models of how Enterprise Social Networks have been integrated into organizations, and how organizations can evaluate the effectiveness of their Enterprise Social Networks.
Many people are already familiar with social networks – popular services like Facebook and Twitter connect people in new ways. In a far more productive way, Enterprise Social Networks connect the workforce within an organization. Additionally, Enterprise Strategies is seeing a growing amount of adoption for these tools but organizations struggle to implement them successfully or to get workers to use them in a meaningful way. The report also addresses a framework based on Andrew McAfree's SLATES model to help organizations implement Enterprise Social Networks successfully.
"Enterprise Social Networks are a powerful productivity tool. As organizations become bigger and more complex, Enterprise Social Networks will become even more important in enabling collaboration around the world in real time among a distributed workforce," said Jankowski. "Learning about them today in our free downloadable report is a fast way to get up to speed on the changing landscape of social business and to help them evaluate how Enterprise Social Networks can help the organization."
