Ever wanted to capture the collective intelligence of your organisation to unlock innovation? We all have great ideas… but how do we turn those ideas into action? In this episode of The Yaminade (sponsored by harmon.ie) we talk to Ben Elias (@ideocial) from Ideocial. Ben visited Brisbane earlier this year and spent a couple of hours with me in at the Adopt & Embrace office to geek out about innovation and leveraging tools like Office 365 to make it happen. Together we explore how enterprise social networks like Yammer can be used to harness the novel and ingenious ideas your people have… and how you can then prioritise the implementation of those ideas in our organisation. Then we learn a little more about Ben’s idea sourcing platform – Ideocial.

Thanks to harmon.ie to sponsoring this weeks episode of The Yaminade. harmon.ie solves the Yammer user adoption problem by bringing Yammer and SharePoint into a single-screen experience. With harmon.ie, workers focus on getting work done and not on using the tools. On the desktop or on mobile devices, harmon.ie unlocks the full value of the Microsoft collaboration tools you already own… SharePoint, Office 365, Yammer, Skype for Business, and OneDrive. harmon.ie: Yammer and SharePoint… in one window….no pain
There is a lot of “knowledge gold” walking around the office in the minds of your employees… but how can you effectively discover, organise and codify that information into valuable intellectual or knowledge capital for your organisation? In this episode we chat to Luke Grange from Microsoft. He shares with us some insight into some of the conversations he is having with customers about using Yammer to help create corporate cultures where knowledge is freely shared and curated in a way that makes a positive difference.

Hi Yaminade listeners!
First of all – thank you so much for your support and continued listenership over the past year or so. I really appreciate it!
I just wanted to post a quick update as to why the podcast has not had its regular cadence over the past couple of months. There have been some exciting developments occurring which ultimately will ensure that you get even more value from your favourite Yammer podcast!
I am proud to share with you that I have left the security of my full time job with a Microsoft Partner to start a new venture – Adopt & Embrace – a company completely focused on helping you and your peers to get more value out of Yammer, Office 365 and the rest of Microsoft’s productivity technology suite.
Adopt & Embrace is focused on helping Microsoft Partners and their customers to increase active usage and adoption of collaborative technologies like Yammer — and the rest of the Office 365 platform. Our philosophy is that your technology investment can’t realise its full potential until your people can get the most out of it. This isn’t just about training, but a comprehensive adoption approach. This includes requirements analysis, business case development, adoption planning, organisational change management, training, and optimisation.
If your organisation is looking to do it yourself and needs some guidance, maybe want to outsource to someone to get an outcome, or somewhere in between, we can work with your Microsoft Partner to help you achieve your business (not just technology) goals.
Thanks for your support and looking forward to producing more valuable content that you can action in your business over the coming months!
