A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of speaking with Chris Slemp (@cslemp) – Mr Social from Microsoft’s own IT department – Microsoft IT. Chris has been with Microsoft for over 15 yearse, and shared with me some war stories of how social collaboration started internally at Microsoft; how it changed when the company purchased Yammer, and what the future holds for internal social platforms. In particular he talks about a number of interesting projects were they are looking to make the digital workplace / intranet experience as relevant as possible to individuals in the organisation – using metrics, data and analytics to make it happen.
During the episode we talk Chris’s Medium post “Which Tool When, v3.0” which I highly recommend you take the time to read.
For those of you attending the Microsoft Ignite conference in Chicago make sure you get along to his sessions – The “Microsoft Enterprise Social Journey: How We Did It“, and “Is Your Culture on a Collision Course with Open Collaboration?”
