What an amazing presentation by Thomson Reuters this morning! Their presentation outlined the company's transformation efforts and success through the use of Jive. Moderated by Michael Moore, Global Head of Internal & Online Communications, he shared the vision of what Thomson Reuters was looking to achieve with Jive. They wanted an intranet solution that provided find-ability, connect-ability and simplicity in one place.
Jane Moran, Global CIO, video-ed in to discuss her technology vision, to share what was critical to the needs of the business and to share the process they went through when choosing a social intranet. Prior to Jive, a team of 10 shouldered the responsibility of managing and maintaining their old technology platform.
HK Dunston (HK Dunston), VP Communications, shared their strategy for roll out and how they have achieved success with three main tactics:
- Building a coalition
- Committing to a simple technology approach with few customizations
- Committing to a partnership with Jive
Edward Ford, their fantastic Enterprise Community Manager, discussed how he made it happen via decommissioning systems, working day-to-day with teams in their transition and fully integrating Jive. Since Jive was introduced, there has been a 100% adoption both internally and externally!
Michael Moore then wrapped up with some jaw-dropping success metrics (as revealed in some of the tweets below), lessons learned, and discussed more on his vision of the future.
