This post is part of a longer article published in a white paper (in french) dedicated to collaborative enterprise trends and sponsored by box. I don’t publish here the definition of collaboration and state of collaboration inside enteprise which was the beginning of the article.

Because it is not only about the implementation of a social enterprise network, but about transforming the organization and its business processes and management methods. I already wrote about it a few time ago and here too. But it is still valid, and during a conference devoted to the evolution of management, someone asked me at the end of my presentation on leadership in networked organization, how to integrate front managers. Here is a quick anwser, even there is not a single way or only one solution.
Like each year, the Enterprise 2.0 summit took place in Paris, this year from Monday to yesterday this week. If many topics has been discussed, the new form of organization and employees engagement have been central. So I’ve decided to interview Jon Husband a consultant in management who has invented 15 years ago the concept of wirearchy and which is more than ever relevant.

At the end of last year many blog post was about the end of social business like this one on Brian Solis’blog titled social business is dead which suggests that collaboration, social, whatever word is already outdated for business. It should therefore provide a new buzzword. No offense to my colleagues from agencies, the real need is still present even if the concept is not as marketing they would like.
